Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Key Text: Genesis 17:9-27
Description: God gave Abraham a sign of His covenant with him,
…and now Abraham was carving that sign into his flesh.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that when Abraham was 99 years old, God commanded him and all his household to undergo circumcision. Abraham’s response: immediate obedience – an obedience that didn’t make him acceptable before the Lord though, but one that sprang forth from God’s gracious dealings with him… gracious dealings that preceded Abraham’s response of faith.

- God ordains the impossible in spite of our DISBELIEF. [15-22]
