Only Sacrifice Makes Love Meaningful

love and sacrifce

Reading: Genesis 22:1-18

In this passage we see the only story in the Bible that mirrors the birth and death of Christ. Abraham so loved God that he gave his only son in sacrifice to God (He had another son with Hagar, the Egyptian bond woman, called Ishmael but he had sent them away earlier in Genesis 21).
