Throughout the past few years, brother Titus has been going through the life of Abraham in week-long trainings–winter and summer vision week. His title for these messages is “A Real Romantic Journey,” and by looking at the life of Abraham he portrays the type of life that we can have when following the Lord. Each stage and element of Abraham’s life is rich in significance, and the goal of this column is to capture the core of how brother Titus expounded on each experience Abraham went through, and its significance to us.

After Lot saw the well watered and beautiful plain of Jordan to the east, he chose that land for himself and left Abram with the mountainous and dry land to the west. In a seemingly hopeless situation, God appeared to Abram and told him to “Lift up his eyes! To look northward, and southward and eastward and westward,” and to “Arise! And walk through the land” because God would give it to him.
