Topic: Biblical Passage: Genesis 22:1–22:24
In the "School of Faith" there will be testing. God does not tempt anyone but he does test our attitudes and motives. The great patriarch of faith, Abraham was tested by God to offer up his most precious possession which was his son, Isaac. God was testing to see who and what Abraham worshipped. Did he worship the gift which was his long awaited son Isaac or did he worship the giver of all good gifts? God also will challenge us in the area of an "offering". Will we learn from Abraham? Will we model the example of Jesus Christ? The answer is found in THE OFFERING.
