Abrahams Faith Tested With Sacrifice
As Abraham grew stronger in faith, God told him to offer
his son Isaac as a burnt offering to prove his faith (Gen
22), Abraham obeyed and brought Isaac to Mount Moriah, laid
him on the altar and at the last minute the Lord told him
not to kill Isaac and gave him a ram for the sacrifice.
Here we see Abraham`s faith (Heb 11:17-19) and a beautiful
picture of Christ. The Bible calls Abraham a friend of God:
Isa 41:8 "But you, Israel, are My servant, Jacob whom I
have chosen, the descendants of Abraham My friend.
