The Honor of Rebekah

The Faithfulness of God

  • Who keeps His promises.
  • Who knows our needs.
  • Who speaks to his people.
  • Who saves sinners.

The Typology

  • This continues from chapter 22 in which the Father offers the Son as a sacrifice and effectively receives him back in 3 days. 
  • Abraham…Father
  • Isaac…Christ
  • Servant…Holy Spirit
  • Rebekah…Church

Which of these people do I need to emulate today?

What does God have for me to do right now?  Pray generally for it; then pray specifically for it.
