Day 6

Read Genesis 22:1-14

This is one of the most dramatic scenes in the Bible as God tests Abraham’s faith. Isn’t his trust in God remarkable, knowing that God will provide a lamb even when he can’t see it?¬†

Reflection: Did God provide the lamb before or after Abraham obeyed? How did God the Father have to ultimately do what Abraham didn’t do?

Prayer Point: Ask God to help you obey Him right from the start, even if you don’t see how it will turn out in the end.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: The Present.

Reflection: Why is it so important for God’s people to trust Him? How did Abraham do that?

Prayer Point: Ask God to help you trust Him in hard situations and thank Him for sending His Son.
