It was another glorious Sunday with my Living Waters church family. Our Lead Pastor continued his message series on moving mountains out of the way. Today he told the story of Isaac. God promised Abraham a son, and Isaac was that son. God tested Abraham’s faith by telling him to sacrifice Isaac. He did as he was told. God intervened, and He provided a sacrificial ram in Isaac’s place.
“Take your son – your only son – yes – Isaac – whom you love so much – and go to the land of Moriah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains – which I will show you.” (Genesis 22:2)
Our Pastor then showed us how Isaac was a type of Jesus ! #TypesAndShadows
Post-Sermon I led Communion with the story of Freedom – our nation’s freedom – and our own freedom in Christ.
But when the right time came – God sent His Son – born of a woman – subject to the law. God sent Him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as His very own children. And because we are His children – God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts – prompting us to call out, “Abba – Father !” (Galatians 4:4-6)
