Topic: Old Testament Scripture: Genesis 21:1–21:34
Following Jesus means embracing the truths that Jesus saves, Jesus changes and Jesus sends. The results of this should be tangibly noticeable. If there's no difference in our lives, then are we really following Jesus? In Genesis chapter 21 we finally get to hear about the birth of Abraham's long promised son. This event demonstrates something about God's character. It shows He can be trusted. He tells the truth. He has integrity. These same character qualities should be evident in His followers. We should be truthful and trustworthy. In this day and age, it's a difference that will stand out!
