For the Love of God 2015-02-22
Genesis 22:1-18 – How much do you love God? What are you willing to sacrifice for him? Abraham was called to sacrifice his own son. He trusted God so much, he loved God so much, that he was willing to do it. God, of course, rescued Isaac from that fate because God’s love for us is so much greater than our love for him. Isaac didn’t have to die. Jesus did. Isaac would be laid into the loving arms of his God. Jesus was thrown into the gates of Hell. Our love for God simply reflects his love for us. We learn from Abraham what that looks like.
