Why did God command Abraham to circumcise himself and his household? Skeptics might think it is a barbaric custom rooted in ethnic pride and religious superiority. But even in the original text of Scripture, in the book of Genesis, there are clues that reveal God meant it as a sign and a reminder: not to put confidence in the number of children one can produce, but to trust in the gracious covenant of the God who watches over all His children--from all nations. Join us this Sunday at Beacon Communities for, "The Covenant of Grace"--the second-to-last sermon in our Genesis series, "What Do We Believe?"
