Genesis 12: 1-2 lists out three of God’s “I will” statements to Abram, which are:
I will show you (Genesis 12:1)
I will make you into a great nation (Genesis 12:2)
I will bless you and make your name great (Genesis 12:2).
Today, God’s three “I will” statements to you and me, who have believed in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, are the same.
God will show us … and we are asked to “O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8). i.e., the Salvation of God shown to us in and through Jesus, who is good.
God will make us … into a new nation, for whoever is in Christ Jesus, he is made a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17) … made into a holy nation, a peculiar people, who will sing forth the praises of him (1 Peter 2:9), who is a great God (Psalm 86:10).
God will bless us … for we are blessed in Jesus (John 20:29) and our names are made great by being engraved in the palm of his hands (Isaiah 49:16)
Points to ponder:
Have you tasted and seen the Salvation of the Lord in Jesus Christ?
Have you been made into a new creature, by believing in Jesus Christ?
Have you been blessed in Jesus Christ?
Genesis 12:1-2 (KJV)
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
