Have you ever been mad at God? Yelled and screamed, raised your fist to heaven, sulked – or something because of something painful in your life or that of someone close to you?And – after all that, did you feel guilty about it? Wondering if you were ALLOWED to be mad at God?
We’re going to zoom in on a guy known in the Bible as “The Father of all believers.” In other words, in some way we as Christians all carry his legacy – for good or otherwise, whatever it’s worth, he’s our spiritual ancestor. The Bible describes a totally unbelievable, messy, painful event in Abraham’s life – Genesis 22. Lots get said about that passage as a prophetic look-ahead to the coming of Jesus. Which is true enough. But NOT what we want to key in on. We’re going to think about Abraham’s response when God tells him, “Murder and sacrifice your son. Be like all the other nations, and burn your child to appease me, your God.”
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
This podcast is going to force us to each examine how we connect with God, not only in the good times, but the times when things get REALLY messy.
Glad you’re here with us, ’cause you have those times in your life, too. Don’t you!
