The Call of Abraham


The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, (1. Mose 12)

According to the Bible, Abram was a presumaby 74-year-of-age man living a normal life with his relatives and friends in Mesopotamian Haran, when God talked to him in that way. Well, imagine for a moment you were the wife or a good friend of Abram and he would tell you: “Well, God has told me that I have to leave everything behind me and have to go in a country, that He will show me!”

So we suppose you have a good day and do not react “normal”as: “So, God has talked to you to leave everything? Haha… Are you drunken? Are are you totally crazy now?” Perhaps you lean back, wait 3-5 seconds taking some deep breaths and asked then very friendly:” How did God talk to you?” Well, we do not know what Abram would have answered to this question. Perhaps: “ I had a dream!” or “I heard his voice!” or something else.

We can read more than one time in the Bible, that men or women got a call from God. And the pattern is almost always the same. Someone is living his normal life not expecting something special. And the suddenly the Call of God breaks in and changes that life completely, turning it upside down.
So it was with Abram! The Call of God was the beginning of a almost complete new life!
