Events of the Bible: Birth and Sacrifice of Isaac- Weekly Devotion

What We Learned This Week:
Isaac was born to Abraham (100 years old) and Sarah (91 years old) and Abraham was starting to realize how God could make their descendants a great nation as He promised.
However, when Isaac was a young boy, God told Abraham to offer Isaac, his only true son, as a sacrifice to Him. Abrahams faith was great and he bound up his son and took him to the alter but an angel appeared to him and stopped him from killing and sacrificing his son.
God was pleased with the faith and obedience of Abraham.
 
Relating it to Your Life:
Alrighty well props to Abraham because I am not too sure how I would have acted in this situation. Here we are, after God promised to make our descendants a great nation but then wants me to kill my one and only true son as a sacrifice when it is already a miracle he was born to me at this age anyways. Geeeesh... I think I would have been a little confused. That conversation may have gone a little more like "really God... really??" Abraham showed complete obedience though. He died to himself to follow God and to him, there was nothing greater than following Gods will.. not even his own son. I think we all could learn something about superior obedience from Abraham in this circumstance.
