26 Awesome God, we sing of your goodness, your kindness and your mercy. Yet we confess that we have hearts that rebel against you and your loving Lordship. We confess our callousness towards those who suffer in our world. We confess our tendency towards pride and self-centeredness. We confess that we constantly fall short of your holy will for our lives. Confession of Sin

27 Heavenly Father, forgive us for our offenses. May the precious blood, shed by the Son of God, our Bethlehem born Savior, remove our guilt and cleanse our hearts, that we might live for your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

38 Scripture Reading Galatians 3:15-18, 26-4:5 15 To give a human example, brothers: even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified. 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.

39 Scripture Reading Galatians 3:15-18, 26-4:5 17 This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. 18 For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.

40 Scripture Reading Galatians 3:15-18, 26-4:5 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.

41 Scripture Reading Galatians 3:15-18, 26-4:5 4 1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world.

42 Scripture Reading Galatians 3:15-18, 26-4:5 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

43 The Promised One

44 John 10: And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, 38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. 39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,

45 “Abraham rejoiced to see my day. (John 8:56) Moses wrote of me. (John 5:46) David called me Lord”(Matthew 22:45) We have in these words of our Savior abundant authority for seeking Him in the Old Testament…” A.M. Hodgkin

46 Born of a virgin Isaiah 7:14Matt 1:18-23 A Light to a dark world Isaiah 9:2-7Matt 4:12-17 Betrayed by a friend for 30 pieces of silver Ps 41:9, Zech 11:12-13 Matt 26:14-16 Forsaken by the Father in the cross Ps 22:1Matt 27:46 Messianic Predictions and Fulfillments

47 Genesis 22:1-19 After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2 He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” 3 So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. ell you.”

48 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. 5 Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to you.” 6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. 7 And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”

49 8 Abraham said, “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together. 9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 11 But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”

50 12 He said, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son.

51 14 So Abraham called the name of that place, “The LORD will provide”; as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided.” 15 And the angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven 16 and said, “By myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his enemies,

52 18 and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba. And Abraham lived at Beersheba.

57 At first glance it would seem that God was mocking Abraham. “take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love.” These words seem cruel but they should have reassured Abraham that God was fully aware of what he was asking him to do. God was asking Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Not Eliezer, who was not his son. Not Ishmael, a true son but not the son of God’s promise. (Hagar and Ishmael in fact had been sent away.) Not even an Isaac about whom Abraham might have conceivably been indifferent. It was “your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love.” Abraham was to know that God was fully aware of the struggle that obedience to the command would pose. James M. Boice

58 The problem was not merely that Abraham loved Isaac. What was even more important was that God had promised that all the future blessings of salvation were to come through Isaac. Now God says that Isaac is to be sacrificed, and for the first time in all of Abraham’s experience with God he is confronted by a conflict between God’s command and God’s promise. This test involved a conflict apparently within the words of God Himself. God had promised posterity through Isaac. But God had now also commanded Abraham to kill him. James Boice
