How to Ace a Test
Bible Text: Genesis 22:1-19 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Genesis, How to Ace a Test
1. Abraham faced the greatest test of faith in his life in Genesis 22. God was testing him to prove and increase his faith. What to Abraham must have seemed a most severe trial was in fact a moment of great promise and hope.
2. God tests our faith today for much the same reasons. According to James 1:2-4, trials build perseverance and cause our faith to mature. Peter similarly, in 1 Peter 1:6,7, says that trials prove the genuineness of our faith and our proper response to them will bring glory to Jesus when He returns.
3. Lessons about true worship from Genesis 22 (by Dr. Allen Ross):
-faith obeys completely the Word of God
-faith surrenders the best to God, holding nothing back
-faith waits on the Lord to provide all one’s needs.
