Test of Faith (Gen 22:1-18)

Posted on March 27th, 2019

Most people don’t like tests. They make us nervous because we aren’t always prepared and we think we might get a bad grade. But tests allow us to demonstrate what we know and sometimes what we believe. In this story, God tests Abraham by asking him to do the unthinkable, to sacrifice his beloved son Isaac. It’s hard to imagine a harder thing but we see Abraham respond in obedience and somehow God provides. Do you believe that God will provide in the test you are facing?
