Comment and Suggestive Thought.
The real, essential, enduring prog
i ress of the world is moral, spiritual,
religious. This is progress worth re
cording in the Hook of God. in this
progress Abraham stands out as a
lighthouse landmark, lighted by God,
and shining down all the ages. He Is
! the third of the representatives of
: eras in the history: Adam—Noah—
Abraham.
His first name was Abram, "exalt
ed father,” and changed later In a
vision from God to Abraham, "father
of a multitude.” The derivation of the
name is unknown. Professor Sayce
says that the name Abram (Abu-ramu,
"the exalted father") is found on
early Babylonian contract tablets.
V. 1. “Now the Lord had said."
Omit “had,” Am. R. The Lord said,
first at Ur 1 (Gen. 11:31), and now
again in Haran. where he was at the
beginning of this chapter. Terah, Ab
raham's father, led the first migration
from Ur to Haran. nearly 600 miles
northwest up the Euphrates, on the
road toward Palestine. *
j “Get thee out of thy country, and
■ front thy kindred." Why must he get
j away from these influences? Because
I only in a new country, free from the
| restraints of old customs and old
friends, could the family and religion
of Abraham best develop. “Unto a
land that I will show thee." Here
was another test of his faith. And
the difficulty was greatly enhanced
' by the fact that he did not know
where he was going,
j V. 2. “I will make of thee a great
i nation." Great and good motives are
i involved in this promise. Personally
it would compensate for the loss of
I his own country. This promise was
' fulfilled in the Hebrew race, which
! lias Had a greater religious influence
ilian any other, and which still exists:
but more completely in tbe spiritual
sons of Abraham, the whole Christian
church (Gal. 3:29). So Christ, says
of Abraham, "He rejoiced to see my
day; and he saw it. and was glad.”
(John 8:56). "And I will bless thee."
No earthly good can be so great as
the blessing of God.
“And make thy name great."
j Known, honored, loved through all tbe
! centuries, and by multitudes of peo
| pic. To one who is really worthy of
It, it is a great blessing to be the
hero, tbe example, the ideal of many
people. *
"And (linn sluilt lip 11 llleSSillE." A
blessing in thyself, and a source of
blessing to others. It is more blessed
to give than to receive.
V. 3. “And I will bless them that
bless thee.” Abraham's cause was
to he so identified with God’s cause
that whosoever favored Abraham fav
ored God and his kingdom. So far as
vfe are the true children of God this
is true also of us.
“And curse him that curs' -th thee."
This is the other sidt- of the same
promise. Abraham in character,
works, and representative position as
the founder of the church was so
identified with God that whosoever
hated and opposed him hated apd op
posed God. "The good man is not
alone. Touch him, and you touch
God."
“in thee shall all families of the
earth be blessed.” As they have
been, by the race he founded, by the
spiritual training of that race, by the
religious influences- and the word of
God given through his descendants,
and most of all by Jesus Christ, the
| Messiah, who was of Abraham’s seed.
We too, have great and precious
! promises, in Jesus Christ, of better
I things and a better country than Ah
i raham had. Great lives are trained
I by great promises.
! v. 4. "So Abram departed," with
j ai] that he had (V. f>). "and into the
land of Canaan they came.”
j Canaan—“Lowlands, was orlglnal
j iy the low land on the Mediterranean
j coast, but afterwards included the
1 whole of Palesdne to the Jordan.
Practical Points.
Each one of us is called to go on a
pilgrimage, like Abraham’s, from sin
and a worldly life to “« city which
hath foundations whose builder and
maker is God;” “a better country,
that is a heavenly.” (Heb. 11:10, 16).
We know not at first just where we
are going when Qod calls us from the
world to enter into his service. It is
always to the land which he will show
us Life and duty and work will un
fold themselves to ub as we obey the
call
The better country is heaven, the
eternal home of God’s children, .,
