A Tested Faith

Selected highlights from this sermon.

How much do you love God? How much do you trust God?

God wants our whole heart. This is plain in Genesis 22 when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham obediently gathered what he needed and headed to Mount Moriah, believing that God will not back out on His promise that Isaac was the heir. And even though there had not been a resurrection before this, Abraham believed that God could raise Isaac from the dead. But there was no need. God stayed Abraham’s hand.

Through this story we see how much Abraham’s faith grew over the years, and we see the foretelling of Calvary where God did not stay His hand. There was a rescue for Isaac, but not one for Jesus. Jesus went the whole way, dying for the ungodly — dying for us. And the resurrection that Abraham hoped for, that happened too, when Jesus rose from the dead three days later.
