Genesis 22:1-19 After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here am I"...
Genesis 22:1-19think about it.
What did God do for Abraham in asking him to sacrifice Isaac? How do you see God testing Abraham's faith and obedience? How has God tested your trust in Him or your willingness to obey? Do you think you passed?
Abraham is given this unfathomable test from God to sacrifice his only son. The son whom he and Sarah had asked God for for so many years. The son that was truly a miracle baby. So how did he respond? Perfectly--with complete trust, complete faith and complete obedience. We would do well to follow in Abraham's example from Genesis 22:1-19.
What did you learn from Abraham's actions and responses? What are some things you could put into practice going forward? Tami W.
