Introduction:

  • Genesis 22 is about how Abraham’s faith is tested
  • And this is the forerunner of Jesus
  • Abraham didn’t sacrifice Isaac, God provided a lamb
  • Jesus, the Son of God was sacrificed, he is the lamb of God
  • As I read this reflect on what Jesus has done for us
  • And how to want to respond in faith

Bible Reading: Genesis 22

Question: How has God spoken to you throw this well-known passage today?

Conclusion:

  • Jesus was obedient to His Father, even to death on a cross
  • We need to be like Jesus, we need to be obedient
  • We need to follow Jesus, his teachings, his ways
  • We need to be who we are called to be

Prayer:  

  • Following on from Ray Hughes conference
  • Healthy things grow… see card

  • in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • in Jesus name
