Children of Abraham

"Realize it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham." Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians 3:7
Imagine going to heaven and meeting Father Abraham! He must be a gigantic figure of a man! God rewarded him for his extraordinary, unwavering belief in His power and His promises. At first God asked Abraham to leave all that was familiar to go on a journey, an adventure with Him to a place Abraham knew nothing about. Uncharted territory. Much like most of our future. Are we, like Abraham, willing to risk all we have to go on an adventure with God? I am sure, like Abraham, the rewards will be out of this world!

Then God asked Abraham to sacrifice  his only son. What was in Abraham's mind, I wonder? What goes through our mind when God asks difficult things of us? Abraham did not know that God Himself would sacrifice His only begotten , beloved Son in the future. God never asks us to do things He isn't willing to do and more.  The amazing thing is without knowing that, Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac. 

Lord, may I have a living, working faith like my father Abraham! May I, like him, have an unwavering belief and trust in You and Your Word!
