The story of the call of Abraham recorded in the 12th chapter of Genesis represents the first appearance of God to a person after the Fall of Adam and Eve. The relationship which God establishes with Abram (before his name is changed) is personal and based upon a covenant. The altars which Abram builds are outward expressions of yielding his heart to God's will.
It is no surprise to see that the basic principles established in this relationship between God and Abraham are foundational to the Biblical call to God's people to live holy lives. The call to obedient faith and the importance of the altar are evidence of our allegiance to God. The call to holy living in I Peter 1:15-19 and 2:9-11 is examined in light of the story of Abraham.
