Homework was invented

long ago~

put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

You learn at school

You do homework at home

to

Put into Practice

what you have learned

because you will

be

Tested

and must be prepared

because you never know

when

there will be a

Pop Quiz~

God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!”

“Here I am,” he replied.

Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.” Genesis 22:1-2

Abraham did his homework~

Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it.

He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached

out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. Genesis 22:9-10

Test completed.

He passed the test with flying colors

Because he listened to his teacher and

Abraham did his homework~

The angel of the Lord called to Abraham from heaven a second time and said, “I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed,

because you have obeyed me.” Genesis 22:15-18

Faith Test Completed

because

Abraham did his homework

every time

by

Putting into Practice

Faith

that was tested many times before~

By faith

Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance,

obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

By faith

he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. And

by faith

even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise. Hebrews 11:8-11

Faith Test Completed

By faith

Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death. Hebrews 11: 17-19
