Worship Preparation: August 2, 2015

Sunday, August 2, 2015

1. Read the sermon text: Genesis 22:1-24

2. Read the sermon summary: In this text God tests Abraham's love and faith. Is Abraham willing to give up his only son in obedience to God's command? Is Abraham willing to trust God's promise regarding Isaac even though his current command doesn't seem to make sense? Abraham passes the test and God reaffirms his promise. In doing so, we are shown what true faith is. Ultimately, however, this story points us to Christ who is the sacrificial Lamb whom God provides for the forgiveness of sins.

3. Read the following song lyrics in relationship to the sermon:

What can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
For my cleansing this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
