God commanded Abraham, “Take now 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”
This is the first mention of the word love in the bible. It is not surprising that it is found in an act of sacrifice. Fearing God leads to instant obedience, there is no delay or time required to think about whether God is right or if what he commands is fair. Abraham was fully persuaded that God was powerful and would do all that he promised. In the end of this account, Abraham names the place “The Lord will Provide”. Be encouraged today saints. What God requires of us is everything we have. We must love Him above all and we must give all that we have. While we give a lot God gives more. He did not withhold his only Son but gave him as an offering that He could give us all things. You can never out give God.
