Bible Time Period: Patriarchs
In the time of the Patriarchs, you called Abraham and promised his children land, a royal kingdom, and worldwide blessing: Help me to trust in your promises today.
“The infamous account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and of Lot’s wife turning into a pillar of salt, is related in Genesis 19. Don’t miss verses leading up to it in chapter 18, which show Abraham pleading with God to spare the city for the sake of those righteous inside it. These verses are a beautiful example of the mercy of God and effective prayer, and they also give insight into the character of Abraham.” (The Bible Timeline: the Story of Salvation p. 15)
Notice in chapter 18 the reason God says He chose Abraham. For what has God chosen you?
