15 And the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven, saying:
16 By my own self have I sworn, saith the Lord: because thou hast done this thing, and hast not spared thy only begotten son for my sake: 17 I will bless thee, and I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand that is by the sea shore: thy seed shall possess the gates of their enemies. 18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because thou hast obeyed my voice. 19 Abraham returned to his young men, and they went to Bersabee together, and he dwelt there. 20 After these things, it was told Abraham that Melcha also had borne children to Nachor his brother.
21 Hus the firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Camuel the father of the Syrians, 22 And Cased, and Azau, and Pheldas, and Jedlaph, 23 And Bathuel, of whom was born Rebecca: These eight did Melcha bear to Nachor Abraham's brother. 24 And his concubine, named Roma, bore Tabee, and Gaham, and Tahas, and Maacha.
What's it like doing God's Will, Abraham had showed us in the sacrificing of his son. God stopped the sword from falling. It's not easy to understand moments when we are called to do the unusual task. Yet in God's Word we have read of occasions that I'm sure they too questioned why. When we truly begin to understand the importance of doing God's Will in our lives we will find an abundance of grace. Jesus did the ultimate sacrifice for us and we still have yet to understand how he willingly gave and did the Father's Will so we would be free. The key has always been in doing God's Will. That's why the world is the way it is today, rebellion from doing what we are called to do.
