                                                    TOPIC: A TESTED FAITH IS FAITH INDEED
Memory verse:-"Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!” "Here I am,” he
                     replied. Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go
                     to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains
                     I will tell you about.” Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey.
                     He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood
                     for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. On the third day
                     Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. He said to his servants, "Stay
                     here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we
                     will come back to you.” 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. When they
                     reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the
                     wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then
                     he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord
                     called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!”
                                                                                                                                 -Gen. 22:1-11
Every graduated student’s intelligence has been tested before so as to certify his/her competence. In the same way fait needs to test in order to certify the true position of the faithful. It was so difficult for Abraham to sacrifice his promised son but for the sake of obedience he was willing to do it till God asked him to stop. If we love God then obedience to him is better than everything. It is God first and our will and desire come second. By all means, always remember, that as a Christian your faith will go through test in order to certify your real position, whether you love God or yourself or the devil.
Prayer:-pray for strength to stand in every test and emerge victorious
What to meditate on:
What is faith and obedience?
