What’s in a Name
Last week we studied the story of the covenant that God made with all living creatures after the flood in Genesis 9. It was a lop-sided covenant because God is the only one that bares any responsibility in the covenant. This week we are studying another covenant. It is the covenant that God makes with Abram and Sarai in Genesis 17. There is a lot to consider in this passage.
Scripture: Genesis 17:1-16
When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless. And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly numerous.’ Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, ‘As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations.
