“A Life-or-Death Test”

Hebrews 11:17-19

Introduction

The Big Idea– While your faith definitely pleases God, your growth from walking by faith through testing is even better!

The Biblical Background– (Genesis 22:1-17)

(11:17a) The testing of your faith may stretch you to do things you’d never normally choose to do.

(11:17b-18) The testing of your faith may, at first glance, seem like it is contrary to God’s promises.

(11:19a) Your faith is powerful because of God’s unfathomable power, not how strong your faith is.

The Bottom Line (11:19b) What does God’s test of Abraham illustrate for you and me?  What practical difference must that understanding make in our daily lives?
