Question: It takes the average person nine days before they'll do something about this problem. What is it? 
Answer: Their check engine light! 

Are you guilty of that? How long do you typically wait until you have that checked out? 

There are times in life, like the when the "check engine" light comes on, when we are told to do things, and we don't fully understand why. That can lead us to be resistant, or doubtful that we even need to do what we're being asked to do. That's the truth with lights on our dash board, or when the Lord asks us to do something, especially when that something doesn't make any sense to us, is inconvenient, difficult, or even painful.

Today we enter into the story of Abraham and see what happened the when Lord asked him to do something monumentally painful and what we can learn from his response. We’re continuing in our Lenten sermon series "The Good of Giving Up" with a message from Pastor Jill called “What to Do When Your Faith is Put to the Test” OR “The God Who Gives & Takes Away.”
