  1. “The Father of Faith”(Gen. 22:1-19)

  2. What type of faith does God desire? • 1. Abraham’s faith was an obedient faith.

  3. (Hebrews 11:8) • By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. (NKJV)

  4. (James 2:18-24) But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe--and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. (NKJV) • (James 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (NKJV)

  5. What type of faith does God desire? • Abraham’s faith was an obedient faith. • Abraham developed a trusting faith.

  6. (Hebrews 11:17-19) • By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense. (NKJV)

  7. What type of faith does God desire? • Abraham’s faith was an obedient faith. • Abraham developed a trusting faith. • Abraham’s faith understood that God deserves (and expects) nothing less than that which is most valuable to you.

  8. (Genesis 22:2) • Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you." (NKJV)

  9. (Genesis 21:12) • But God said to Abraham, "Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. (NKJV)

  10.

  11. (Genesis 22:5) • And Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you." (NKJV)

  12. (Proverbs 3:5) • Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (NKJV)

  13.

  14. (Hebrews 11:9-10) • By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. (NKJV)

  15. (Genesis 22:1) • Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." (NKJV)

  16. (John 6:28-29) • Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent." (NKJV)

  17. (Colossians 2:12-13) • buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, (NKJV)
