Bible Story:

Genesis 22:1-24

After a longtime of waiting God gave Abraham and Sarah a good gift that He had promised them long before, a son! Now God asked Abraham to do the unthinkable, give his son back to God! Thankfully God had a plan to give Abraham another gift that would point to the best gift of all that God gives to the world.


God Is – God Gives

“God is” means that there is only one god in the universe. He alone is Lord over everything that exists, and He alone is worthy of our worship. This also means that every good thing that exists comes from God. All good things come from Him because goodness is a part of who He is as the one true God. It is a part of His nature and character to be good, and everything that comes from God is good. Thankfully, God has not chosen to withhold His goodness from His creation, but instead gives it freely to us.
