Genesis 15:7 states “And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.” What is interesting to note is that the Lord first identifies himself (I am the Lord) and then expresses that it was he, who brought Abram out of the land that was predominantly pagan (the Ur of the Chaldees), and then gives his reason for bringing Abram out of the pagan land, which is to give Abram the land to inherit it. It was the Lord who is the source of Abram’s inheritance.
Points to ponder:
The Lord wants us to leave all our unholy pagan (worldly) ties and to follow him to where he wants us to go in our lives. We like Abram must obey, so that he can bring us out of our worldly ways and give us the inheritance that he has planned for us. God brings us out to give us an inheritance. He is the ultimate Source of our Inheritance. When we believe in Jesus Christ, we are brought out of this world and given his kingdom/land (heaven) to inherit it. Have you believed in Jesus Christ?
Genesis 15:7 (KJV)
7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
