The Faith Honours List
We are going to focus on the verses about Abraham’s faith when he was tested (so it would be good to read Genesis 22:1-19 as well).
- Hebrews has already said that all Christians should expect to be tested (see Hebrews 4:15 – ‘tempted’ is the same word translated in Heb 11 as ‘tested’) so we need to learn from Abraham how to face tests with faith.
- We will ask 4 questions:
- Why does God test us?
- What makes a test?
- How do we pass the test?
- Which test will we never have to take?
