The scriptures which are the word of God records a story about Abraham being tested by God. God instructed Abraham to offer his only beloved son as a burnt offering. In the instruction of God, Abraham was expected to slaughter or kill his only son in the manner he used to kill animals and offer them to God. Killing a person, let alone your most loved child could not be easy. Yet the bible records that Abraham, obeyed God immediately, even when it was not easy.
Your relationship with God is not measured by what you say about God to people, or the impressions you create, neither by miracles, preaching and teaching. Your relationship with God can be measured by how much you obey Him. When you are fully sold out for God, you should be prepared to even lose your life for the sake of the Gospel. Obedience to God should not be a matter of convenience, where by you Obey Him because it is easy, fashionable and align well to your career or business. You need to obey God up to the point of death.
Gen 22:2-3 Says “He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” (3) So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.”
Obey God to the point of death. From Simtandile Dlepuma. Stay blessed.
