Abraham Sacrifices Isaac
What do you think you already know about Abraham promising to sacrifice his only son, Isaac?
Read Genesis 22
What is one thing you read that you’d never noticed or known before? How does it change the story for you?
"‘One day Someone will be born into your family,’ God promised them. ‘And he will bring happiness to the whole world.’
God was getting ready to give the whole world a wonderful present. It would be God’s way to tell His people, ‘I love you.’
Many years later, another Son would climb another hill, carrying wood on his back. Like Isaac, he would trust his Father and do what his Father asked. He wouldn’t struggle or run away.
Who was he? God’s Son, his only Son – the Son he loved.
The Lamb of God."
What does this story have to say about how much God loves you?
