Abraham and Isaac
Today I would for us to look at the lives of Abraham and Isaac, so if you have a Bible, turn over to Genesis 22.
There is a tremendous tension because how could a loving God even suggest what He is commanding Abraham?
The blessings that God gives us can become more important than the God who gave them to us in the first place.
I’ve got to ask the question–are you following Jesus or is Jesus following you?
We read these stories and we don’t even think about the dynamics happening in this story!
Long before God laid the earth’s foundations, He had us in mind… Long, long ago, He decided to adopt us into his family… He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need.
How much do you trust God? Enough to put your Isaac on the altar?
If your faith is in Christ, then you have been grafted in to the family of Abraham and he is your father.
Christianity is not about what you can do for God, it is about what He has already done for you.
