an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, GOD hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. (Gen 21:1-6)And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which GOD had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as GOD had commanded him. And Abraham was
Even with His mistakes and sIn, Abraham believed GOD and GOD kept His promise, and in doing so did for Abraham something only He could do. Sarah also believed, her faith and the power of GOD gave her power to conceive in her old age, and bare Isaac, a testimony of GOD and His power and faithfulness. We too can overcome obstacles, survive challenges, and perservere in this life, because of GOD and our faith in Him and what He has already done on the Cross of Calvary in our place and for our sIn. Many times that means waiting on GOD and His timing, and continuing in our service to Him while we wait so that He is glorified in what He does for us
We are commanded to proclaim the Good News that just as Sarah received strength in her old age to bear a son, so all that trust Him for Salvation can receive forgiveness of sIn, and power from GOD to life in Him and for Him as His own. We are commissioned to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ that all who hear may believe and believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. He calls you turn away from your sIn and unrighteousness, that you may receive His forgiveness through faith in what He has already done on that cruel Roman cross. Just as He gave Sarah the child of the promise, He offers you forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life.
