Sacrificial Surrender/Service


Genesis 22
Verse 2: God calls Abraham to surrender what he loves most
Verse 3-9: Abraham takes actions towards obedience
Verse 10: Abraham is ready to give up what matters to him the most
Verse 11-14: God saves Abraham from focussing on things other than God

- the gospel should be everything in a person's life
- the world was crucified to Paul, Christ became his focus
- the idols in our life cause us not to be a Pure Bride

Things (idols) that keep us from being pure:
a) if people think well of me I will be valuable
b) if I am in control of my life, I will be happy (counter: James 4)
c) my value is in my abilities
d) if I didn't have close friends, my life is meaningless (counter: Romans 8:31)

Our idols can be ourselves. We can often figure out what our personal idols are based on our reactions when we are: Bored, Lonely, Angry, Stressed, Tired

Find value in Christ. Above all.
