for Sunday, February 17, 2008

Abram is presented as a model of faith. He had reached that age whereby he was respected as a wise and tried leader. He was at that stage of his life where he should enjoy the fruits of his years of labor. The last thing anyone would have expected a 75-year-old leader to do is to set himself and his people off into a new direction.

This is the type of faith that we are called to embrace. We are called to be different from those elements of the world that do not make God their priority. We are called to leave the security of trusting in our land, or our stuff, and to put our faith completely in God. We are called to be part of a new people, a new breed, who are radically different from the world. We are called to be holy, for that is what holiness is, being set apart for God.

Jesus, as the Man of Faith, trusted completely in his Father's plan for mankind with the faith of a human being who recognized his dependence on his God. He believed the scriptures that the Messiah would suffer, die and rise.

Jesus was the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets. He discussed this with the foundations of Israel's faith, Moses and Elijah. He would trust God to allow His Plan to be accomplished. And He would not let His disciples say anything about the vision until He had risen from the dead. We cannot come to any sort of understanding of Easter Sunday unless we experience Good Friday.
