Today we will be reviewing the story of Abraham and how he trusted God. We will see how Abraham believed God with all of his heart and was willing to do everything that God told him to do. God in turn blessed Abraham and all nations of the earth because of his faith and obedience. Time and time again, God has proven himself faithful and that his promises are true. He doesn’t have to do that, but he understands humanity and therefore when his children, like Abraham are obedient, God in turn blesses. We see today that the promises God gave to Abraham have come to pass and are true. We know that the promises God makes to us are true and will come to pass as well.
3. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. 4. Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. 5. And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. 6. And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. 7. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? 8. And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
Last week we began this lesson. We reviewed the life of Abraham and his relationship with God. We learned how God chose Abraham and made a covenant with him and his seed and how God is faithful and true to his word. We saw his struggles as well as blessings. We learned that God gave Abraham and his wife Sarah a son in their old age, when Sarah was past child bearing years. His name was Isaac and God chose him to be the son of promise. Then we saw how God instructed Abraham to take Isaac and offer him for a burnt offering unto the Lord. Abraham trusts the Lord and takes Isaac as God has instructed. When Isaac asks Abraham his father where the sacrifice was, Abraham replies that God would provide himself a lamb.
2 Corinthians 5:14. “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15. And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16.Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19. To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
GOD Bless all who read, and hear Your word, In the name of Jesus…
Author’s Notes: Last week we began a new series on the life of Christ. The first lesson focused on the account of Jesus staying behind in Jerusalem, at age twelve. This week’s lesson finds us jumping forward eighteen years, to when Jesus was thirty years old. We’ll be looking at the first recorded event in Jesus’ life, following His disappearance as a youngster: and that will be His baptism by John the Baptist. It’s a short passage, but one packed with great significance in understanding who Jesus truly is. And rather than doing an activity only at the end of class, if you have the supplies available, this week the students will be completing the activity during the course of the lesson.
Activity Preparation: If you have the supplies available, encourage the students to work along with you, through the lesson, to complete the handout/activity sheets. A sample is provided as this week’s handout a. However, you can create your own, if needed. You will only need paper and writing utensils. Divide the paper into three sections, one for each verse.

Author’s Notes:This week we’ll be continuing our series on the Life of Christ by looking at some of His miracles. There are so many recorded in God’s Word. Each teaches us something special about Jesus. We’re going to limit our lesson to only two of them; the first and last recorded in the Gospel of John. And we’re going to learn from each of them who Jesus really was (God in the flesh), and what He wanted us to learn about Himself.

Horizon Christian Fellowship - San Diego. - Lamentations 3:26,27 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,is it fair that we should know sorrow, pain and death? I think my answer would be,"it's not that we are supposed to experience death and pain. It's the wisdom that comes from knowing how good God is, despite our pain and sorrow. Because wisdom and understanding is way more valuable and worthwhile than all the pleasures that are marketed and pushed on us, and believing physical sex and substance abuse and pleasures that we are led to think is normal and real, are good for us. God is real and the sooner we get to know Him, the more peace we will have in the fire and turmoil. Then we can truly enjoy our lives whether in poverty or wealth. Peace or war. Beautiful or not beautiful.. 4/7/2011

LISA DEVINNEY - “I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26b NIV Are you in the midst of a storm, today? Are dark clouds looming above you while water is rising around you? Or do you find yourself fighting a battle that seems to test every fiber of your strength and faith? Or maybe you have a friend facing a difficult challenge, and you’d like to encourage them through their battle. Inspired by a friend’s courageous battle with cancer, Blessings in the Rain is a collection of Scripture verses and poems meant to encourage those who find themselves fighting battles of their own. Whether physical, mental or spiritual…the battles we face daily can easily cause us doubt, discouragement, despair, or fear. But God has an incredible way of taking what might have been meant to harm us, and instead use it for our good. He turns our storms into “showers of blessing.”
This book views the New Testament within the Holy family, clarifying for the reader the time and place relationships among these events, most of which are often studied in isolation from each other in Bible studies. In this way, a reader may already know the stories of Lazarus, Jesus, Herod, etc. but may lack an integrated vision of how these events worked together in time and place. The book's interweaving of events, plus diligent detail in presenting culture and setting, will place a vivid memory of New and Old Testament events in the reader’s mind.
Your kids will delight in the timeless
tales of courage, faith & endurance with characters like Adam & Eve,
Noah, Moses, Abraham, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostles.
Our truly unique DVD's bring biblical stories and characters to
life. The Animated Kids Bible will cement their favorite biblical
stories and characters in their memories for all time, by first
entertaining them, and then helping them to develop deeper
understanding and knowledge. Click
