The Greatest Test of Your Faith

Genesis 22:1-19; Hebrews 11:17-19
When Abraham was commanded to sacrifice Isaac, he faced his severest test. Some day each of us will face our severest faith test, which will be a demand from God, which seems untimely, unreasonable and unbearable, but also will have a design from God, in which he will remove idols, reveal himself, refine us, and restore us.

Famine in the Land of Promise

Genesis 12:10-13:4
Abraham’s faith temporarily faltered when he left the promised land to go down to Egypt, demonstrating that spiritual famine is predictable, that faltering in faith is possible, but the faithfulness of God is promised, as he rebukes and restores us to a right relationship of trust and obedience.

The Waiting Father and the Lost: the Parable of the Prodigal Son

(Audio Unavailable) Luke 15:11-32
Jesus tells the story of a father who loved and sought to restore his two sons—one who was outwardly rebellious (the “prodigal”) and the other who was inwardly resentful (the elder brother). Jesus’ parable shows that, whatever our spiritual condition, we all need the Father’s love and grace, and need to progress from rebellion and resentment to become more like the loving Father.
