God Tests 1-08-12

January 7 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Genesis 22:1-5
1 Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he replied.

2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”

3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. 4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. 5 He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.”

That God tests us to see if we are willing to live our life to serve him completely. Abraham was willing to sacrafice his only son. To make God's will be done, even when Abraham didnt want to he always obayed God.
God wants us to serve him with everything we've got and to listen and OBEY his laws and him himself.
To be more like abraham willing to do anything for my lord.
