At the New Life Conference, Thabiti Anyabwile preached on Genesis 11:27-12:3 to show that 1) the life of faith is a going life 2) the life of faith is a great life and 3) the life of faith is a guarded life. Thabiti reminds us that Christ’s call to “go” from Matt. 28 recapitulates God’s call for Abraham to “go.” He says, “the besetting sin of the Western church is a complacent staying.” It is a great thing to be a Christian, yet we must beware of the desire to make our own name great. C’mon up on The Front Porch and enjoy this sermon! This is the fourth of six sermons from this conference.
