Rebekah offering water to Abraham's servant and camels

Sermon Theme: ‘Isaac and Rebekah: The Marriage’

Scripture:  Genesis 24:34 – 51

Summary:
Given Abraham’s experiences regarding Isaac, his son and heir, you’ll understand his keen interest in the right bride for his son. He sends out his servant to help find just the right girl. Rebekah seems to answer all the desired qualities.

We explore the ways in which the marriage of Abraham’s son give us insight into God’s desire for the Bridegroom, Jesus, to have a beautiful bride, the church.

For further reflection:
What comes to mind when you think of the concept of ‘holiness’? How can we work together to present Jesus a beautiful bride?
