Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together, Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, “Father?” “Yes, my son?” Abraham replied. “The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together. Genesis 22: 6 – 8.
Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.
God sent Lord Jesus Christ as the lamb of sacrifice for our sake.
Jesus is our light, joy, hope and salvation, a friend who never forsakes, who lifts us when others try to push us down. We cannot wear Him out; we pile on Him all our griefs and troubles. He is always ready to lift us and help us. He addresses with the same love; He beams up on us with the same smile; He pities us with the same compassion. There is no name like HIS. – Streams in the Desert – Mrs. Charles E. Cowman.
