Bottom Line: God initiated a promise with His people even though they didn’t deserve it.
Scripture: Genesis 12, 15
After such a low point in the continuum of God’s story—after the garden—it is hard to imagine how things could begin to look up. But the goodness of God wasn’t lost in the brokenness of humanity. God pursued a man named Abram. And to Abram, He made a promise—a promise that had nothing to do with what he could or couldn’t do. Following one of the lowest points in the story, God continues to make sure we haven’t lost His message. He is for us, and He wants a relationship with us—and we didn’t do a thing to earn it.
We'll be reading about the covenant God made with Abram in Genesis 12, re-affirmed in Genesis 15. He promises to bless the entire world - including you and me - through His relationship with Abram. That promise was completely unconditional! God's love never stops pursuing us. Even when we turn our backs on Him, He continues to love!
