:: Genesis 17 ::

gen 177

You might have already read 1 Samuel 25 but personal worship this week is Genesis 17. You might be a little confused but Sunday morning Father’s Day message will be on it. If you don’t go to church anywhere you should definitely visit us for Father’s Day with your family 🙂

Remember to open up each day with prayer. Pray that the Holy Spirit guides you as you read God’s word. Try and find a quiet place that you can have at least 20 minutes of uninterrupted time.

Day 1: Read Genesis 17. After reading this chapter is there anything you can adore about the character of God?

God makes a covenant with Abraham. It’s this unbreakable promise. This promise is not only for Abraham though, but for all of his descendants. God promises to be not only God to Abraham personally but also to us.

> What does that mean to you? Reflect on the God’s promises.

Day 2: Read Genesis 17 again.

Every male that was born in to Abraham’s family and those that he bought would need to be circumcised. This was a physical sign of God’s promise to be their personal God forever. But they needed to obey.

God changed Abraham’s name. His name before was Abram. He was making him new. He was transforming into a new creation.

Since being a Christian are you a new creation in Christ? Does your life actually look different from those around you?

The apostle Paul in Colossians tells us what we should put to death in our lives. Read Colossians 3:5-17. Take off the old and put on the new. You may not need to actually change your name like Abraham but you should be changing your thoughts, actions, relationships, etc because Christ has made you new.

Day 3: What has God been teaching you this week?

Read Isaiah 55 for more of God’s promises. Rest in them. Memorize them. He comforts, nourishes, satisfies, those who draw near to Him.

Day 4: Prayer.

Since Sunday is Father’s Day spend some time praying for the influential men in your life. This could be your dad, grandfather, brother/s, friends, church leaders, etc.

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:26
