It got me thinking about the similarities between Abraham's story and our story.
Abraham was sent to sacrifice his son, but at the last minute God provided a lamb for him to sacrifice instead.
I wonder if even that far ahead of time God had it planned for us to realize that that lamb was a metaphor for the lamb that would be slaughtered for us.
In place of us dying, like Isaac, a lamb was sent in our place. A perfect lamb, Jesus, was sent to die for us.
No matter what, God provides.
I just never had thought about the story of Abraham, Isaac and the lamb in a way that made it relate to other parts of the Bible. Not only is a great lesson in itself, to me, it can show once again that God knew what was going to happen all along.
It was just something I thought about. Maybe you'll disagree, but I thought it was worth mentioning!
