Sermon Notes

   This morning the message parallels chapter 7 of our small group study called Christian by Andy Stanley. He talks about loopholes in this chapter.                     

   Accountants may be able to find tax loopholes that can save people some money. Lawyers try to find loopholes in the law or the evidence to benefit their clients. But unfortunately there are followers of Christ who also try to find loopholes so they don’t have to follow God’s will for their lives.

   Today we’re looking at Abraham who wasn’t interested in loopholes but being fully committed and surrendered to following God’s will for his life and the life of his family; even to the point of being willing to sacrifice his son Isaac whom God had promised would have many descendants.

   Would he trust God to fulfill His promise? Can we trust God to fulfill His promises?
