SURRENDER
THE HEART OF TRUE WORSHIP
Rev. Joey Crisostomo
Director for Central Operations
May 10, 2009

KEY SCRIPTURE
Genesis 22:1-14 (NIV)
9When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
• God's demand from your life and mine is total, absolute and unquestioning obedience to His perfect will.  (1 Sam. 15:22; Rom.12:1-2)
• Even though we know this, there is still a part of us that wants to rebel against the command of God for our lives.
• Let's join this great man of God on this mountain and see what it would take for us to be On the Mountain of Absolute Surrender.

The Command
2 Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
1. God commanded Abraham to Go and Worship
2. Worship is not optional, it is a Command.
3. Notice How God Details His Commands


Notice How God Details His Commands
1. The Person to be offered…Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love
2. The Place …go to the region of Moriah
3. The Manner …Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains

The Response
3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.
• As soon as God speaks, Abraham responds!
• Abraham wasted no time, but got himself up and gathered everything he would need to do what God had commanded.

Measure Your Obedience…
1. By how quickly you obey
2. By how gladly you obey
3. By how faithfully you obey
4. By how humbly you obey
5. By how total you obey

The Complete Surrender
9   When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
• Abraham knew why he was there. He was there to offer his beloved son to God. He was there to give everything that was present in that day and all that was promised for tomorrow.
• Abraham viewed God as being worthy of receiving all he had without question or without reservation.
Worship begins at this point of surrender... a holistic, intentional surrendering where we lay ourselves, plans, desires, future, and ambitions down before God.
• Can you honestly say that God is more important to you than anything else in life?
• Have you honestly come to the place of total and absolute surrender to God?

The Blessings
15 The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time 16 and said, "I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
• He Received God’s Approval …Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son."
• He Received God’s Provision …13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram  caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.
• He Received God’s Promise…that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring  all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."

CONCLUSION
Remind of TYPE
Why God made him go to this region and mountain. This is the same mountain on, on which the temple was built (2 Chron. 3:1), on which the animal sacrifices were offered, and on which Jesus was crucified 2000 years later to pay for the sins of the whole world.

Why God had him offer his only, beloved son. Jesus' famous statement in Jn. 3:16 is probably a purposeful echo of 22:2,12. What God did not make Abraham go through with, he did go through with himself, because this was the only way we could be forgiven and reconciled to God.

Why God had Isaac carry the wood to the site and voluntarily submit to his own death. Jesus voluntarily bore his own cross to Golgotha (on this mount) and subjected himself to crucifixion--because he loves us with a boundless love that freely gives himself for us.
