And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise. Galations 3:29 (ESV)

Abraham took his only son, Isaac, and headed to a mountain in Moriah
With unwavering obedience he followed God’s command
For the burnt offering, Isaac carried the wood, Abraham the fire
But what could be sacrificed to possibly justify the sins of man?

At the right time the angel of the Lord stayed Abraham’s hand
For the Lamb of God upon The Cross is His required provision
God’s undeserved mercy and love embodied in the Son of Man
For salvation can only be through His Son’s death and resurrection

The promise to Abraham was realized through his unquestioning faithfulness
And we too can be numbered among his descendants if only we believe
Receiving “the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness”
We have new life because God’s ultimate provision for sin was upon a tree
