GENESIS 18:22 – 19:26

It sounds like Abraham is bargaining with God for Sodom and Gomorrah.

As believers is it OK to bargain with God for a good cause?

Abraham is the only person in the Bible given the title, the friend of God.

2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8; & James 2:23.

Abraham is standing before God and interceding, not bargaining, for Lot and the others.

Who does Jesus call His friends?  John 15: 13 – 15

Genesis 13:13, 19:5; Isaiah 3:9; Jeremiah 23:14; Romans 1:27; & Jude 7

What does Abraham call God?  Genesis 18:25

Abraham bases his intercession on God’s justice.  Deuteronomy 32:4

How do we make good choices?  Matthew 6:33
