Genesis 22 – shows incredible surrender by both Abraham & Isaac
Why should I surrender my life to God?
Because of how merciful God has been to you… it is only reasonable to conclude… (Rom 14:7, 8)
What does that surrender include for my life?
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Holy – separated from the world and unto God
The fall of the Christian
Become a friend of the world (James 4:4)
Then spotted by the world (Jam. 1:27)
Then love the world (1 John 2:15)
Then conformed to the world (Rom. 12:2)
Acceptable to God – well pleasing to God
