God’s Covenant Faithfulness

Abraham’s Journey: From Babylon to Canaan to Egypt, then back to Canaan

Life is hard and painful — that is true! — but we are never without comfort and hope. In all our pains and sufferings, the Bible tells us to look up and cry out to our Creator and Savior, to the One who sent His Son to pay for sins and redeem His sinful creatures. To us, undeserving sinners, our infinitely merciful God offers forgiveness, salvation and covenant provisions. And it’s all because of Christ’s death and sacrifice for us on the cross of Calvary!

Note: This video is the introductory background portion of a message on Genesis 15:7-21 that I preached at Covenant Reformed Church (URCNA) in Carbondale, Pennsylvania. You can watch the rest of the sermon here.

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.

    The Bible does not promise us a trouble-free life. Instead, God’s word tells us to expect temptations, trials and tribulations in the life of faith (John 16:33; Acts 14:22; 1 Peter 4:12). But at the same time, we are also to expect the Lord’s presence and help to be with us the whole way through (Psalm 23:4; Psalm 34:17-19; Hebrews 13:5).
