December 7: Genesis 22:1-19

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Genesis 22:1-19

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Verse 14 is a demonstration of revolutionary faith on Abraham’s behalf. At this time people had gods for the long-term life concerns and then patron (city, ancestors) gods for the short-term daily issues. The original language shows that Abraham is saying that God/Yahweh is providing the short-term AND the long-term needs.

  • What does this passage tell us about God? How does it look forward to Jesus’ coming?
