In faith and the fear of God, Abraham prepared to sacrifice His beloved son, Isaac. At the command of the Lord, Abraham bound Isaac and laid Him on the altar. But God stayed Abraham’s hand and then provided a lamb for offering. That Lamb is God’s own beloved Son, Jesus; through Him “shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.” Jesus is our substitute. Where we are tempted by our own desire, which conceives and “gives birth to sin,” our blessed Savior, Christ Jesus, “remains steadfast under trial,” and has received “the crown of life.” His faithfulness, His victory and His life are given to us.
