When Faith is Hard

October 14, 2012 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: Genesis

Topic: AM Service Passage: Genesis 22:1–22:24

When God asks Abraham to do the unthinkable - to sacrifice his son Isaac - what does the man of faith do? How can the promise of God go forward if the promised son is slain?


I. Faith Tested
A. Command

B. “Contradiction”

II. Faith Revealed
A. Obeying the Lord

B. Believing the Lord

III. Faith Rewarded
A. Certain Reward

B. Gracious Reward

Questions for consideration: (1) When has your faith been tested? How did you respond? How could you trust God more? (2) What does this passage teach us about our actions? (3) How does this story help us to witness to those around us about the Lord?
