The Sacrifice of Isaac, Part 1: The Test of Faith
Passage: Genesis 22:1-19
Takeaway: God tests our faith not for him to know the extent of our loyalty or the lengths of our devotion, but he tests in order to strengthen and refine our faith. The test God gives Abraham is shocking, yet it is not just for his benefit. Through his trial, we learn a great deal about following God faithfully even when things seem illogical. How do you expect God to grow your faith? Where do you find yourself limiting God in the ways that blessing must come?
