Genesis (Program #48) – The Motive and Strength of Being Called
Today we are going to look at the God of glory appearing to Abraham. When you consider Abraham’s entire life, when you look at him in his entire history. You’re looking at a person just like us. He is called the father of faith. There seems to be quite an impression from the Word that he is really a person of faith. But when you look at the details of his living, he was a person just like us and actually very unbelieving. If it weren’t for the appearing of God, he would just be in his unbelief. But the very appearing of God infused him to the uttermost. In principle, I would say, what kind of person was he? He was really like a kind of unbeliever; the Lord would say something, he would say yes but then actually he just live out the opposite. Really what was required, what was needed for God, the God of glory to appear to him over and over and over again and it’s just like us. I am so grateful that the Lord came to me again and again and again so that we can be infused with Him as the unique faith in this universe. Abraham is called the father of faith but actually he did not have one drop of faith. All of his faith came from the appearing of the God of glory, infusing him with Himself as the very believing element. This is the kind of person he was, apart from the God of glory, he had no faith. He was not a believing person. But Hallelujah, the God of glory appear to him over and over and over again, so he has been infused with this dear person as the very believing element.
