Sermon Notes: God will provide(Genesis 22: 1-19)
Abraham trusts God to provide a substitute to fulfil his promise

God HAD provided - Abraham’s test (v1-2)
- Isaac was God’s gift, the son of promise - 4 forms of ID
- Will Abraham give up what God has given to him?
- Q: What are the things we hold on to so dearly? (Job 1:21)

God WILL provide - Abraham’s faith (v3-8)
- Abraham’s willingness to obey - early rising (v3 and 21:14)
- Faith in action: ‘we will worship.. we will come back’
- Where is the lamb? ‘God himself will provide’
- Q: Can we trust God when he calls us to do difficult things?

God HAS provided - Abraham’s vindication (v9-19)

- Isaac on the altar - under a divine death sentence
- Rescue through substitution; resurrection (Heb 11)
- Renewal and expansion of the covenant - by your offspring
- ‘On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided’ - Mount Moriah is where Jerusalem was built - substitution of Jesus for us gives life
- Q: Will you receive what God has provided for you this Christmas? How can we share this with our community?
