CHOOSE TO BE GOD`S BEST
Pastor Bong Saquing   /   Aug 17, 2014
   

Genesis 25 narrated the epitaph of Abraham from God’s perspective. At an old age, Abraham died blessed in every way. His faith became a hallmark of his friendship with God (James 2:23; 2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8).

Jesus also gave this wonderful blessing to His followers. He said, “You are my friends if you do what I command.” (John 14:15)

How was Abraham able to choose to be God’s best?

Live by God's Promises

When God called Abraham to leave his birth land, he did not know where he was going. Nevertheless he obeyed (Genesis 12:1-3; Hebrews 11:8). He journeyed into the land where God promised. True to His Word, He blessed Abraham and multiplied his descendants through Isaac and all his other sons (Genesis 25:1-4).

To live by Gods’ promises we need to commune with God and meditate on His word. The Scriptures speak of God’s promises. God’s Word clearly promises His presence, His provisions, His wisdom, His peace among others.

Live with the End in Mind

Abraham lived 175 years. Despite all the challenges and mistakes in his life, he died fulfilled because he lived his life by faith and obedience to God.

Life is short. Live with the end in mind. To waste time is to waste your life. God teaches us to add life to our days and gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12). At the end of our life, we only desire to hear God say to us, “Well done my good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:11).

Live a life without regrets. Do not get busy with the things of the world (Luke 17:26-29); let God’s favor confirm the work of your hands (Psalm 90:17). Finish the race and remain faithful (2 Timothy 4:6-8).

Live to Live Again

Abraham lived a full life. He passed on a godly legacy to his son Isaac. God blessed Abraham, Isaac (Genesis 25:11) and his descendants (Galatians 3:6-7).

As believers and followers of Christ, we received the promise of life after death and we rejoice with our restored relationship with God (Galatians 3:11-14). Abraham was blessed to bless, and so are we. Let us run the race not only for the prize but to leave behind us a heritage of faithfulness through our godly lives. Let them who walk behind us find us faithful.
