Who’s laughing now?

God has brought laughter for me (1-7)
- Promise of a son fulfilled - eventually!
- Isaac ‘he laughs’ brings laughter
- Impossible has become possible through God’s intervention
- Q: What are the promises we’re waiting for God to fulfill, to bring laughter?

Unwanted laughing (8-21)
- Difference between laughing with and laughing at
- The son of Hagar and the son of Sarah - sunrise showdown
- Isaac the promised offspring
- Ishmael sent away - God has heard (17) and seen (16:13)

Laughing as children of the promise (Gal 4)
- Realising who we are because of whose we are
- Rejoicing as children of the promise, because of the promised Son
