Genesis 15-17

No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.

When you encounter God, you change. For Abram that meant a new name, but it also meant following the Lord. He would become the father of many nations, and so he is. All those who call upon the name of Jesus are heirs of Abraham’s promise. This everlasting covenant was made absolutely rock solid by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. Have you trusted in Jesus?
