Sermon Theme: ‘The Patriarchs: Abraham and Isaac – The Test’
Scripture: Genesis 22:1 – 19
Having received a promise from God that he would be the father of a great nation, Abraham was overjoyed at the birth of his son Isaac. How then would he respond to the call of God to sacrifice His son? How did this make sense? Is this what God was like?
How can we make sense of this unusual request from God? Today we consider what it means to present ourselves to God as living sacrifices as Paul suggests in Romans 12: 1 – 2
For further reflection:
Is your faith living or dead? Are you alive to God or numb to his presence? Are you serving Him joyfully or out of routine? Read Romans 12:1 – 2 this week and use it to inspire your prayer responses to God.
