LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 16
THE CALL OF ABRAM.
LESSON TEXT-GEN. 12:1-9.
GOLDEN TEXT-"I will bless thee,
and make thy name great; and be thou
a blessing."-Gen. 12:2.
The Bible does not profess to a be
a chronological history of the world.
It does profess to reveal the steps of
the redemptive process of God where
by fallen man shall be justified In his
sight. So it is that we find but little
record of those hundreds of years be
tween this lesson and the events re
corded in that of last week. We do,
however, find all that is essential in
the history of the plan of salvation.
The cleansing of the earth by water
was not for long, since we soon see
men relapsing into sin.
1. "Gat thee out of thy country," vv.
1-3. In this lesson we behold God
again selecting a single man who shall
be the head of a race. We do not of
course infer that Abram received an
audible call, though God could certain
ly speak as he did on other and numer
ous occasions. God calls today by
these Inward impulses and desires, by
the voice of duty and conscience, by
the force of circumstances, and by
the word. The Bible is God's great
est organ of speech.
From Acts 7:2 we learn that the call
first came to Abram when he was in
Mesopotamia, probably on the right
bank of the Euphrates river, and that
his obedience to that call was only
partial. Abram got out of his own
country, but not into the land prom
ised unto him. He journeyed probably
500 miles to the northwest but got
only as far as Haran, which was not
the promised land. It took, evidently,
the death of his father to move him
from that plice, Acts 7:4. Abram
went. not. kuow iug tier kind of a land,
nor was he told wlwre it was to be.
Heb. 11:8. His call was threefold.
(1) "for thy country," (2) "thy kin
dred," (3) "thy father's house." Thus
ve see that God demanded a complete
separation from the old life, associa
tions and affections.
II. And Abram departed," vv. 4-6.
"To obey is better than sacrifice and
to hearken than the fat of rams," I
Samuel 15:22. Abram had just enough
faith to obey. We do not read that he
asked for enlightenment: he saw not
the land, but he heard the call and
staggered not at the promise. He was
fully persuaded that God was able to
perform and therefore it was reck
oned unto him for righteousness, Acts
7:20-22. But he did not go alone. Al
ready God had begun to redeem his
promise (v. 2). Abram's character
was such and his name of such import
that his nephew Lot accompanied
him. Lot, however, did not possess
that same faith nor a like character.
Lot went ''with him" and not, like
Abram, with God. Abram also took
his own family with him, and "all their
Rubstance" v. 5. Nothina was left be- I

hind to tempt him to return. "Au
they went forth into the land of Ca
naan," a type of the life into which
we are called In Christ Jesus. Thus
at once another part of the promise is
IIL "And the Canaanite was In the
land," vv. 6-9. All was not so easily
settled for Abram. "Man that is born
of woman is of few days and full of
troubles," no life is devoid of its test
ing, Eph., 6:12, R. V., and so as Abram
journeyed he met with enemies.
His Place of Rest.
Passing on from thence he reached
a place of rest (v. 8). This is a beau
tiful lesson on consecration. Here is
Abram at "a mountain on the east of
Bethel" (house of God). Notice he is
on the east of Bethel facing westward,
the direction in which he has been
journeying, having Hai (ruins) at his
back, and "there he builded an altar
unto the Lord and called upon the
name of the Lord". (v. 8). Let us all
remember to turn our backs upon the
world, and as we face the house, the
altar of God, render him undivided,
whole-hearted worship and service.
God's appearance to Abram was again
in connection with obedience. God is
just as ready to assure us as we jour
ney through this humdrum, toilsome
journey of life, ever ready to meet us
and to make us glad by the way.
Notice that Abram in a strange land
did not neglect God's altar like many
a present-day pilgrim, nor to give tes
timony of his faith for "called upon
the name of the Lord." Like the
Christ who "had not where to lay his
head," so Abram was a "pilgrim."
For the older classes consider such
questions as, Every Man's Life a Plan
of God; Our Debt to Judaism; Our
Treatment of Others Who Are Pil
grims. Strangers, e. g., immigrants.
For the younger do not omit Lot
and the dramatic, high-light picture of
that journey from tir of the Chaldees
(use a map). Emphasize how much
better it is to be a blessing than to
seek a blessing for one's self. "Not
what has happened to myself today,
but what has happened to others
"So on I go. not knowing
I would not if I might;
'd rather walk In the dark with God
Than walk alone in the light:
I'd rather go by faith with Him
Than go alone by sight."
-Dr. David J. Burrell.
