Jesus came to seek and to save that which is lost. He came to proclaim liberty to the captives. He rescues for His Father those of his own who have been enslaved by their rebellion against God and their own self-destructive identity and choices. As Jesus’ followers, we are told to go and do likewise. But beware, it is a messy calling.
Abram and Lot had a complicated relationship. It was marked by disagreement and discord. While Abram sought to bring harmony, Lot acted selfishly and disrespectfully. It would have been easy for Abram to wash his hands of Lot but that is not what we see. Abram is characterized by interceding for Lot, seeking Lot’s good and God’s grace in his life. Like his Savior, Abram is a man committed to rescuing his own from the effects of his ungodly choices.
Join us this Lord’s Day, June 11 as we examine the account of Abraham and Lot from Genesis 14 and consider the messy calling given to us to “seek and to save that which is lost.” We meet from 5:00 – 6:30 pm in The Commons at St. Andrews Anglican Church at 8300 Kanis Rd in Little Rock.

Come with a friend you and join us for fellowship and conversation. We look forward to seeing you there.
