Big Picture Question:
Can we trust in God’s Promises? Yes! He always fulfills his promises
What We Learned
This Past Sunday we talked about the introduction of Isaac into the world! God had always promised Sarah and Abraham a child bore by Sarah but they never really knew when. In fact, when God promised Abraham a child, Abraham was already around 70 years old! This in turn led to Sarah laughing at the possibility of having a child that old. God promised Abraham that His descendants would become a great nation. But Abraham and Sarah had to wait a very long time for this promise to come true. Eventually, God did come through as he always does and the child was to be named Isaac, which meant ‘laughter’. This name was to remind Sarah of when she laughed at the thought of having a child at such an old age but it is also to remind everyone that God always comes through with his promises!
Abraham and Sarah had to wait a very long time, but God did fulfill His promise. And God had made a bigger promise to Abraham: that the whole world would be blessed through his line. It took thousands of years for God to fulfill that promise! Jesus, who fulfilled this promise when He blessed the whole world through his sacrifice on the cross, came to Earth by being born in the line of Abraham thousands of years later.
