Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.
Leaving Haran, as we have learned, means to come out of all that distorts the IMAGE of God in those who are Abraham’s children in faith, in sincerity and revolt.
These may be within a Christian church or any other religious, social, economic, spiritual or intellectual segment.
Haran can be sin, misery, divided family, depression, in short; everything that does not match the IMAGE of God. It is good to remember that we are created to reflect His image (Genesis 1:27).
We have seen that many even leave Haran, but do not go to Canaan. They continue to be around Haran. Did they walk through the door? Yes, in a way. But they did not begin the 900-kilometer journey to Canaan.
In this journey, although harsh, cruel, under a scorching sun and exposed to all kinds of danger, the greatest miracles that God wants to accomplish in our lives happen: the encounter with God in the Altars that we built along the way, the new birth on account of the sacrifices we offer for the preservation of our fellowship with God, and the baptism with the Holy Spirit that comes as the oath of God or His seal in our lives.
The problem of not obeying “GET OUT” is to remain close to Haran, and thus, due to the smallest problem, pressure or adverse situation, to return there. It has been like this with many, unfortunately!
Are we going to Canaan? There are 900 miles of fantastic experiences with the God of Abraham.
