Trust Fall (Week 4): “The Rescue of Lot”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Genesis 14:1-24

Pastor Jason Mayhall leads Redemption Bible Church through Genesis 14, and gives an example of how to be bold in our faith, in the sermon series “Trust Fall.” A key concern for Abram is he lacks an heir and knows that Lot, who is next in line, has not always held God at the center of his decisions. Abram knows he needs to continue to pursue Lot to help him see God. It is never easy to pursue relationships with people who you see are making bad choices, but it’s crucial to do so. Love demands us to pursue people. The opposite of love is not hate, but apathy. This passage helps us see how we must remain humble and pursue our sinning brothers and sisters with love.
