HEROES OF FAITH!

Bible Study Series

Led by Pastor Shane 
“The Faith of Isaac!”
Lesson 5 of 13

Introduction:  In Hebrews chapter eleven, God calls our attention to something near the end of Isaac’s life.  He points us back to a single incident.  From that incident He wants us to gather truths that will help us to turn our eyes God-ward and that will strengthen our faith in the Lord.

Bible Background Reading:

Hebrews 11:20; Genesis 25:19-28; Genesis 26:13, 18; Genesis 27:1-25, 33-34; Hebrews 12:17; Proverbs 19:21; Isaiah 14:26-27

Preparation Questions:

Day 1:   Read Hebrews 11:9-10 and list the things that Abraham did “by faith.”

Day 2:   In Genesis 17:1, by what name did God reveal Himself to Abraham?

Day 3:  According to James 2:21-23, what was Abraham called?

Day 4:   Compare Genesis 18:9-14 and Matthew 19:26.  What was the Lord teaching Abraham about Himself?

Day 5:  Read Hebrews 11:1 and I Peter 3:5-6.  In what ways did Sara exercise her own faith in God?

Day 6:   Read the story in Genesis 22:1-13 and compare this account with Hebrews 11:17-19.  How did Abraham face this trial?

Lesson Aims:

  • To recognize the place God should hold in our hearts if we are truly placing our faith in Him.
  • To have a determination to finish our lives with strong faith in the Lord.
  • To trust the Lord to help us deal with our own failures and partialities toward others.
  • To see by faith that God has an eternal purpose and that His purpose will be accomplished in this world.
