Genesis. I have decided that I am going to try to read the Bible in it’s entirety. I am not sure of the form or method that I will use, but I will be working towards that goal. This goal is on my Life List. I have tried to do this numerous times in the past. I have a read a few complete Books of the Bible, but never attempted to do the whole thing. I have tried to read Genesis at least three times straight through, and have never finished it once. That is where I am starting. The Book of Genesis. I have currently read 35 chapters of the 50 chapter book, but already I am learning and advancing what I already know about the book.
When I got to the part about Abraham offering Isaac, his one and only son, as a sacrifice to God–it made me tremble. I just had a daughter. I was trying to put myself in that spot, trying to picture my reactions. Would I have turned away from God? Luckily, God spared Isaac. Abraham had proved that he feared God enough to sacrifice his first and only son. He raised his hand with the knife, and God stopped him because of his Faith. How strong is our Faith that God is in control? Would we be willing to suffer for our Faith?
