“God’s word to Abram in Genesis 15:1 is His word to us as well. Let us praise and thank our covenant Lord who comfort us with His word of promise – of covenant care and fulfillment. Surrounded by God’s enemies and ours, we can count on His unfailing protection and preservation. Suffering as pilgrims and aliens in a fallen world, we can count on Him to fulfill His promise of a new heaven and new earth. As we continue in the life of faith and discipleship, He pledges to reward us greatly and exceedingly.” – Pastor Glem Melo
