The Communion of Abram
Last week we saw Abram's rescue of his nephew Lot who had been taken captive. Abram's intervention, which was immediate, costly, but effective, certainly demonstrated his love for his wayward nephew. His intent was to rescue Lot, but in so doing, he literally saved a nation, as well. Overnight, Abram became a hero, but in the commotion of sudden popularity, he remained humble, even when some prestigious people knocked on his door. Tonight, we're going to look at Abram's obedience and we'll see the first mention of Melchizedek, tithes, and communion in the Bible.
