Read v.22 again. How does Abimelech’s remark about Abraham challenge us? The patriarch here demonstrated Christ’s teaching that we are the light of the world and are to bring glory to our heavenly Father by the way we live (Matthew 5:14&16).
How do we conduct ourselves in the midst of unbelievers? Do our actions challenge unbelieving colleagues to ask why we are different? Would your neighbours recognize God’s power at work in your life and perhaps be saved? Paul says, “You ?. are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” (2 Corinthians 3:3, NIV).
Abraham accepted his status as stranger in the land of the Philistines and made a peace pact with Abimelech so they can always live together in peace with each other (vs.23‐24). As children of God, we should not be the cause of crises in our society. Like Abraham, we are strangers and ambassadors in a foreign land (this world). Thus, we are not to court trouble but always endeavour to be peacemakers (Romans 12:17‐18).
So What? A life of faith in Christ will always produce good works, but good works will never produce faith in Christ Jesus that leads to salvation.
