ABRAHAM THE FRIEND OF GOD SERIES PAGE BY DELBERT YOUNG
Why at age 75 would a man leave all that was familiar and comfortable? What is so powerful that it caused Abraham to leave first Ur and then Haran to seek a land that he had never seen? How does a person like this become a friend of God?

Three times in the scriptures is Abraham called the friend of God. The Lord would visit Abraham and then Abraham, through his altar, would visit the Lord. What kind of friend is it who never visits? Surely not a very close friend. No relationship is that way. Relations we bless and relationships that bless us are those where visitations have taken place.
We see a man of God, our father Abraham, rebuked by a heathen, Pharaoh. It is sad when a heathen displays more virtue than a man or woman of God. Often “Christians” feel they should get special treatment from authorities. No. God will allow them to rebuke the believer. Deception, lying, not keeping our commitments, etc. will bring a rebuke from the heathen.
