As Genesis chapter twelve opens, the narrative picks up on the story of Abram, the tenth generation of Shem's progeny. God directed Abram to move to a land that the Lord would show to him. Slowly, faithfully, generation after generation, the Lord directs, guides, and corrects Abram and his descendants through the annals of His redemption, fulfilling His promise of redemption in the birth of Jesus, Who directly descended from Abraham, through Whom all of the nations would be blest. Conceived by God's Spirit, Jesus was also God's Son, the Lamb of God sacrificed for the sins of the world, through Whom the creating, redeeming Lord of all creation would bring his wayward people back home to Him where they will praise His glorious Name for all eternity.
The book of Genesis is not only the first book of the Bible detailing the beginnings of Creation and life as we know it, but also serves as the over-arching and pervasive sacred reference for the true understanding of the entire Bible as intended by the Author, God, the Spirit of Truth.
Practical Christianity Foundation is a not-for-profit research Foundation organized in 1997 for the purpose of producing an easy-to-read devotional commentary series on the books of the Bible. Our goal is to encourage instruction and devotional meditation for individuals and small groups in matters of life and faith in God through His Son Jesus Christ in a study of God's Holy Word .Practical Christianity Foundation offers the global Christian community a simple, easy-to-read devotional commentary on the books of the Bible to encourage and nurture biblical instruction and meditation. In both the written and electronic editions, passages of verse-by-verse commentary are developed immediately following each verse and are summarized by notes and applications designed to apply the focus of the passage to the life and faith of those who follow Jesus Christ. Both the electronic and print versions of the Devotional Commentaries offer the reader a valuable resource, rich in godly and Christ-centered substance necessary for knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and worship.The comments are obviously interpretive. However, the essence of the work is devotional. Each paragraph is a result of the collaborative deliberation that comes from deep personal meditation, intentional research, and faithful application arising from the conviction that the Bible is the word of the Lord to His people. God's Word is reliable, trustworthy, and God-revealing. We believe that when the Bible speaks, God Himself speaks. It is the Truth that brings sinners to repentance and guides their journey throughout their redeemed lives in Christ. We pray that this commentary series would lead unbelievers to Christ and enrich the lives of those who have been redeemed. We pray that each believer walk in the joy of the Lord, enduring the troubles of this world through the peace that only God can give. In all things, we lift up the Name of Jesus to the glory of God the Father and continue to humbly pray that He would graciously and mercifully reveal Himself through the study of His Word.
