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.
Venturing In Faith
Abraham’s journey of faith could be described as a series of new beginnings. Although his walk contained many pitfalls and failures, Abraham learned that with God, failure is never final. Abraham’s trust grew with each new beginning as he responded in obedience to God’s call. Throughout this series from Genesis, Alistair Begg explores faith as expressed through the changes and challenges of life. The measure of our faith grows as our understanding of God’s character grows, and we can walk boldly in light of His promises.
