The call of Abraham led him to a better country that was prepared by God. Nevertheless, his journey to Promised Land was filled with trials that required faith. We learned last week, “It is obedience that is the test of faith.”[1] Abraham offered up the dearest thing to his heart; his only begotten son. Isaac was the promised son that Abraham and Sarah sought for a number of years into their old age. Rather than questioning the ways of God, he continued in faith; “Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead…” (Heb. 11:19a). Unknowingly, Abraham’s act of faith illustrated the future sacrificial death and resurrection of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ.
