Following the life of Abraham, we are presented with a picture of the life of every believer. We see great mountain top experiences characterized by tremendous faith and courage. But right next to these, we see dark valleys characterized by doubt and fear. But throughout, God reveals Himself to us through these dark times.
In Genesis 22, we see the climax of Abraham's walk with the Lord. Called to an impossible task, we see Abraham respond in obedient faith. But more that Abraham's tremendous faith, no other Old Testament story gives such clear glimpse into the heart of God. Just as Abraham was called to offer his own son, our Heavenly Father offered up His own Son, to bear the burden of our sin.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May the Lord bless you through the teaching of His Word.
