In Genesis 17 God comes to Abram and makes a covenant with him. He promises to bless Abram and give him a son – at 99 years of age! By simply changing one letter in the Hebrew, he would now be called ‘Abraham’, which means ‘father of many’ (Genesis 17:5). God’s call to Abram marks a significant intervention by God into human history. By calling Abram, God initiated his redemption plan for humankind. Give thanks that even at this early stage God was planning to use Abram and his descendants to bless the whole world.
