When Isaac became a young boy, God spoke to Abraham and commanded him to take his son to Mount Moriah and offer him as a sacrifice to God.
This was God’s test of Abraham’s faith. Abraham loved his son very much, but did not refuse to follow God’s words for he was a man whose faith in God was strong.
As Abraham and his son reached the place where the sacrifice was to be performed, Isaac said to his father, “Father, where is the lamb that is to be sacrificed?”
Abraham replied, “My son, God will provide the lamb”.
It is not known how eventually Abraham told his son that he was to be the sacrifice, but Isaac bravely laid on the sacrificial place ready to be sacrificed for God.
As Abraham was taking out his knife, his hands were trembling. He was about to sacrifice his son when he heard the voice of God saying, “Abraham, Stop! Do not hurt your son.
You have proven your faith and shown how much you love me by willing to sacrifice your son for me. Therefore, I shall bless you and your family, and through you, I shall bless all the nations on earth”.
God also provided a lamb for the sacrifice. Abraham went home along with his son, and their hearts full of love and faith. Genesis chapter 22.
