As Abraham Did

39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do what Abraham did. (NIV)

 We must remember what Abraham did.  He obeyed God.  God told him to go to a place he didn’t know and he did.  God told him he would wipe out Sodom and Gomora and he interceded for them.  God promised him a son and he had one.  God told him to sacrifice his son and he did so, though God stopped him just in time by providing another sacrifice.  What do we put before God?  What are we willing to sacrifice?  God provided us with the perfect sacrifice, His Son.  God wants us to put Him first in our hearts, minds and lives.  We must continually be on guard of putting other people, things or tasks before God.  We must be like Abraham, doing what he did; putting God first, obeying God in all things and interceding for others.
