The footsteps of Abraham:
God starts Abraham’s walk with Him in the book of Genesis, chapter 11. God begins this journey with not Abraham, but his father, Terah, who leaves his country after being plagued with ill-fortune in his family such as death and the end of the line coming from his eldest son, Abraham. ( Abraham’s wife, Sarah, is barren) Terah heads good ol’ “Wild West” of Canaan with his family, but he never finishes the journey and dies partway there. As grim as it already is, God calls Abraham to go and follow Him. It certainly doesn’t seem too bad, but Abraham leaves all his inheritance from his father and everything else he owns to be dependent on God into the misty unknowns of Canaan.
God tells us, Christians to leave everything behind and follow Him into eternity. He tells us to let it go; let it all go- all that dies behind and let God to be God of our lives and lead us into eternity.
