“By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”
Today’s Morsel: Scripture says that Abraham received Isaac in a figure. What was this figure? It was Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son (John 3:16). When He could find no man to stand in the gap for the land, (Ezekiel 22:30); Isaiah said, “And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him” (Isaiah 59:16). This shows us that God values His creation and He’s willing to do what it takes to save us even if He must do it Himself.
Sing: I am so glad that our Father in heaven tells of His love in the Book He has given. Wonderful things in the Bible I see; this is the dearest that Jesus loves me.
I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me; I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves even me.
Thought For Today: Your salvation wasn't cheap.
