Item description for Created to Be God's Friend: Lessons from the Life of Abraham (Christian Perspective Series) by Henry T. Blackaby & Wayne Shepherd...
Overview Because of God's blessing of Abraham, the world will forever know what happens in a person "God calls His friend"! No Christian need live without a keen sense of purpose, knowing God's daily presence in his life. But how do we open ourselves to the intimacy with God so evident in His friendship with Abraham? Through years of prayerful study, Henry Blackaby has uncovered powerful ways God shaped Abraham to be His friend. Using the Bible's powerful portrait of Abraham, Blackaby shows how God can make a follower a true friend, and how faith and obedience lead to a lifetime of joyous blessing. He demonstrates that God can be trusted to take us to a new place of purified character, growing love, and untold benefits.
Publishers Description What an honor for Abraham to have God call him his intimate friend Yet, we know God desires all of us to have such a close relationship with him that we learn to hear and respond to His voice. We can see through Dr. Blackaby's study in this audiobook that as God was constantly at work in Abraham, He is also working in us to bring us to the kind of spiritual intimacy and friendship with Himself that Abraham experienced.
