Day 1 – Advent
November 27, 2017
After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you LOVE, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to you.” And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” Abraham said, “God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together.

During this season of preparation, pray for these servants, Michael & Ginger, as they prepare to share God’s love in Central Asia.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY FOR FAMILIES WITH LITTLE ONES
Jesus is the lamb God provided as the offering for our sins (messups/mistakes/oops). Lambs, in the Old Testament, is what they used for offerings until Jesus came. They were supposed to be white – no marks or other colors – spotless like a marshmallow!
Roast some marshmallows over the fire (or just eat a few without the fire). Have your little ones check them and make sure they are perfect!
