Re:Verse reading–Genesis 22:1-19 (day five)

And he said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” Abraham said, “God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them walked on together.  

As parents, one of our tasks is to disciple our children- to share our faith (testimonies and truths about a loving and faithful God). There is a trust and willingness in Issac to honor his dad’s leadership and spiritual instruction. No microwave solution for this kind of discipleship and trust. Years of faithful teaching and daily examples led to this kind of response from Issac. His question is honest, insightful and gives a glimpse into a meaningful relationship with his father. Abraham’s answer is powerful and prophetic.  “God will provide the Lamb”.  Parents/Grandparents begin now to daily and faithfully disciple the next generation. They will learn how to love and trust God because they will watch and listen to you. You have the wonderful opportunity to speak and model the powerful and prophetic to them.

One thought on “Discipleship”

  1. True! Parents are in a great position to model to their children for the positive spiritual influences or transformation. Children watch how their parents do and act so they must be mindful to speak and to act God’s way. Actions count! Modeling the spiritual behaviors is essential if we want our children to imitate!

    What we think will become. Positive thoughts and faith help in our walk with God. Just trust God and believe that He will be with us in times of need and will provide in His timing. I am convinced!
