In what appears to be the humdrum of our days, we are being prepared for an ultimate testing of our faith. Abraham ventured forth in faith toward the place of obedience, and trusted God fully for sufficient provision in his time of need. Alistair Begg explains that Christ’s own obedience and sufficient sacrifice is pictured in Abraham’s trusting obedience. We must examine our faith to see if we can say with full assurance that we are ready for the ultimate testing.
9When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
