Divine Relocation

Genesis 12:1-4

From the time of Abraham forward, God often removes his people from the place of familiarity and comfort to places of unfamiliarity and discomfort. He dislocates them so that they do not attempt self-sufficiency. We can call it creative dislocation. When we feel dislocated, God does his most creative work. Think of Ruth, Esther, and Daniel. All churches, except Jerusalem are in diaspora.

  1. wooh! Totally where I am at right now. A complete summary of everything I have been feeling and thinking over these past couple days.

    It’s strange to think that a place that I am so familiar with has now become my land outside of Ur.
