The Vision (6/30/11): 2011 VBS: The Life of Abraham

This week in Vacation Bible School (VBS) at CRBC we have been studying the life of Abraham.

Here is the ground we have been covering and our focus verses:

Monday: The Call of Abraham (Genesis 12-15)

“And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness” (Gen 15:6).

Tuesday: The Promise of Isaac (Genesis 16-21)

“Is anything too hard for the LORD?” (Gen 18:14)

Wednesday: The Sacrifice of Isaac (Gen 22)

“And Abraham called the name of that place The LORD-Will-Provide” (Genesis 22:14 NKJV).

Thursday: Finding a Wife for Isaac (Gen 23-24)

“But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac” (Gen 24:4).

Feel free to quiz the children this Sunday and let them tell you about the life of Abraham.

Our VBS has also providentially corresponded with the sermon series in Romans 9 in which Paul reflects on the true seed of Abraham (see Romans 9:7-8). Paul’s argument all throughout Romans requires that his hearers are fully acquainted with the Old Testament narrative. Our prayer is that our children are not only learning about Abraham but better understanding (or being prepared to understand) the gospel.

“And if ye be Christ’s, then ye are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).

Grace and truth, Pastor Jeff Riddle
