Abraham and Isaac
In the first two articles in this three-part series, we've learned that Abraham trusted God with all his heart, and that his unselfish love for his nephew Lot brought great blessings.
God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations whose people would worship God. They would not worship idols, as the people who lived around them did. But Abraham had no children. (You can find this account in chapters 17, 18, 21, and 22 of Genesis.) He was ninety-nine, and his wife Sarah was ninety. The idea of having children now made them laugh.
But God told Abraham that His promise would be kept. Sarah would bear a child. And, in fact, Sarah soon gave birth to a son. He was called Isaac. Sarah and Abraham rejoiced with all their hearts.
