[Genesis 12:1-3] Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you; and I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
God’s mandate to Abraham was for him to leave his homeland and journey to a land that God would show him. God promised that he would be a blessing and that through him all peoples on earth would be blessed. This mission is true for all believers today.
