The Surety of God's Promises
Topic: Abraham Passage: Genesis 15:7–15:21
We live in an age of fake news. Propaganda and half-truths are spewed out every day by deceitful, manipulative charlatans who want something from you. So it's no wonder that the question Pontius Pilate asked Jesus is such a contemporary one in our culture: "What is truth?" Thankfully we have the answer! The antidote for fake news is the Good News. The answer for those in the grip of the father of lies, is to trust in the God who cannot lie! We can trust God! In this text Abram learns the surety of God's promises to him, for the LORD makes a unilateral and binding covenant with him.
