99 Years

This morning as I was listening to my partner give a discipleship lesson to some of our contacts, Genesis 17:1 was read:  “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, ‘I am El-Shaddai – ‘God Almighty.’  Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.'”

What a simple but powerful statement.  God showed Abram his power and gave him a command:  “Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.”  At 99 years old, one might think that his life was about over.  However, for Abram, it was only just beginning.  Next year his wife would have a baby.

God gives us this command as well.  We must be faithful, we must serve Him only, and our life should reflect clearly His character.  Blameless.  What a big word, but I want it to be said of me.

99 years old and Abram’s story was just beginning.  Tomorrow, I will wake up with a life ahead of me.  25 years and the story is just beginning.  What an exciting adventure.  Thank you for the opportunity, God.  Let’s do this thing!
