Pastor Art Azurdia preaching part seven of "The Animation Principle" from Hebrews 11:17-19.
The text this week puts on display one of the most extreme and barbaric tests of faith a person might ever face. Abraham is asked to obey God by sacrificing is only, long-awaited son. What Abraham went through defies explanation and understanding, but he obeyed immediately. In this story, the parallels to Jesus Christ are staggering, beyond any coincidence. So, how can you remain faithful to God when confronted with a test that demands the most extreme sacrifice. By recognizing that God is the author of the test and by remembering that God has omnipotence at his disposal.
