WEEK 7 – October 22nd, 2017
THEME: Abraham: Genesis 17 and 22
Kinder Box: “F” Verse
Mystery Bag: Romans 12:1-2
Last week we learned that Abram was willing to leave everything for God. We learned that he was promised to be the Father of a nation that would be blessed by God. What you might not know is that Sarai, Abram’s wife, could not have children. How would Abram be a father of a nation if his wife couldn’t have kids? Answer is that he couldn’t, unless God did a miracle. Well, God made a covenant with Abram and told him he would give him a son through his wife Sarai. God even changed his name to Abraham, which means “Father of a Multitude.” God also changed his wife’s name to Sarah, which meant Princess (or Kings of people would be from her). It was hard for Abraham to believe God’s promise because he was 99 and his wife was 90 years old! Abraham didn’t understand how it was possible, but he trusted God. Sure enough, Sarah did give birth to a son and they named him Isaac, just like the Lord told them too. This was an amazing miracle and proof that God can do anything and that He does keep His promises, but God would still test Abraham’s loyalty to Him alone. You see, it would be easy for Abraham to love his promised son so much that Isaac would became an idol. So, as Isaac grew older, God told Abraham to take Isaac up to the mountain and sacrifice him as a burnt offering! Can you imagine God asking you to sacrifice your promised son as a burnt offering? Abraham didn’t know this, but this was only a test to see if Abraham would obey God no matter what he asked of him. Abraham did obey God, but when he got to the top of the mountain and was about to sacrifice Isaac, God told him to stop. Then God provided a Ram for him to sacrifice instead. You see, things always work out when we Trust and Obey God. We serve a faithful God and we don’t have to understand everything that happens to know that our God is Good!
