Abraham. Isaac. Ishmael.
God promised to give Abraham a legacy so enduring that it would become a blessing to everyone on the face of the earth. This hinged on the promise God made regarding his heir (Isaac). Shockingly, Adonai then called Abraham to lay his son down as a sacrifice and trust that God could even raise Isaac from the dead. Abraham's obedience and the deliverance God brought about that day shows us that when we lay down our blessings we ultimately find our calling! #Restoration #Seattle #AbrahamIsaacIshmael

Abraham is one of the most famous figures in history. We usually tell his story in terms of his descendants - his son Isaac and his grandson Jacob. It is important to note that Abraham had another son before he had Isaac - Ishmael. Abraham’s role as father of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam is at its core a family’s story about the tension and controversy between his sons. #AbrahamIsaacIshmael
