A painting of Abraham going to sacrifice Isaac.


Elie Wiesel the most famous Holocaust survivor of all time once said this. “After the Holocaust, I did not lose faith in God. I lost faith in mankind!” If the Holocaust was a test, I am sure Wiesel passed it with flying colors. Speaking of tests, Abraham is a man we cannot ignore. Abraham proved that God can trust him. But God is all-knowing. He already knew Abraham will obey. Then why did he test his servant? Was he being a bully or a prankster? Definitely not. God had some lessons in mind that he wanted Abraham to learn. In today’s sermon, I want to share with you four of those lessons.
