By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac, and he hat had received the promises offered up his only begotten son.
This familiar passage of scripture offers a deep insight into faith using Abraham as our example of total faith when he was ordered to sacrifice his only son Isaac. Abraham believed God with all his heart when He promised to provide and He did.
This takes great faith to offer your only son as a sacrifice; this is what God the Father did in His plan of salvation. He gave His only Son Jesus Christ who gave His life to atone man's sins. Before, Isaac could be slaughtered there was a ram tied in the brush to be offered as the sacrifice instead of Isaac.
Another school of thought is that God tested Abraham to the nth degree asking him to sacrifice his all because God knew He would sacrifice His all-Jesus Christ.
These questions come to mind, do you have Abraham like faith to sacrifice your all? Would there have been some doubt in God providing a sacrificial ram just in time? God is an on-time God who never fails; what He promises will come to pass.
Our faith is tested constantly, are we passing the test? Each time our faith is tested we grow stronger in our faith and trust in God.
