The Gospel in the Old Testament – 5 – Abraham – forsook everything

Abraham is a great picture of the Christian life. He is an idol worshiper chosen and called by God to leave his family, country, and former way of life to inherit eternal life from the true and living God, his new great reward. Like Abraham, we must at all costs strive to enter the kingdom, even repenting of and forsaking that which is most dear. The main Bible verse is Genesis 12:1-3.
