Rev. Samuel Wirgau, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Harrold & Trinity Lutheran Church in Iowa Park, Texas, studies Hebrews 11:8-9a on today’s episode: “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land.” Rev. Wirgau talks about the call of Abraham and the mercy of God, how this verse connects to Genesis 12:1-4, and Abraham’s faith and obedience.
