Test Week - Obedience


We are in the Stanford Achievement Tests at our school. This reminds me that God has dealt with us by giving tests. We will consider five different tests that God gives us by looking at some Biblical Characters who also faced these tests.

Genesis 22:1 (NIV) - "Some time later, God tested Abraham’s faith. 'Abraham!' God called. 'Yes,' he replied. 'Here I am.'”

Today, Read all of Genesis 22. In this account we find Abraham facing his greatest test -- sacrificing his only son. This is a test to ascertain Abraham's obedience level. He passes with flying colors.

God often calls on us to do something hard, maybe even distasteful. He is testing us to show forth our degree of obedience. The sooner we obey, the sooner the test will be over.

Today, is God calling out to test you? Will you pass the test of Obedience?

For Kingdom Education,
