WHAT DOES GOD DESIRE?

October 14, 2018

    Text: Genesis chp. 18, 21 & 22
 

The history of Abraham and Isaac

               A Promise Made             Gen. 18:1-14

               A Promise Kept                Gen. 21:1-8

               A Trust Tested                  Gen. 22:1-10

               A Test Passed                   Gen. 22:11-14

               A Faith Rewarded            Gen. 22:15-19

 

A Model of Faith     (Hebrews 11:6, 8-19)

               Abraham went out not knowing where he was going

               Abraham lived as an alien in a land that God had promised him

               Abraham & Sarah miraculously conceived a son by God’s 
                          faithfulness

               Abraham believed God’s promise of a better future

               Abraham offered up Isaac as a sacrifice to God

 

What was God testing?

               Was God testing Abraham’s love?

               Was God testing his obedience?

 

God’s greatest desire…

               Is for us to trust Him
