ISAAC IS BORN – Genesis 18:1-15; 21:1-8

1 Isaac is born

Time went by and still, Abraham and Sarai had no children of their own.

One day Abraham was sitting by the door of his tent. He looked up and saw three men standing in the hot sun.

As soon as he saw them, he ran out to greet them. He bowed to the ground and said, “Please honor me with your presence. I am here to serve you. Let me get you some water to refresh yourselves. Rest here beneath these trees and I will bring you some food.” 

The three men replied, “Thank you. We accept your gracious offer.”

Abraham hurried back into his tent. “Quick, Sarah,” he said, “get the best flour and make some bread!”

And then he ran out to his herd and picked out a fat, young calf. “Quick,” he said to his servant, “Prepare this calf for our guests!”

When all was ready Abraham brought the meal out to his guests. He served them himself. He gave these three strangers the best he had to offer.

“Where is your wife Sarah?” one of the three strangers asked.

“She is inside the tent,” Abraham said.

“I will return about the same time next year and your wife Sarah will have a son.” the man said.

Now, Sarah was standing inside the door of the tent and she heard what the stranger said. “How can I have a son when I am so old!” she thought to herself. It was such a funny thought, so she laughed.

“Why did Sarah laugh?” the Lord said to Abraham. That stranger was the Lord himself!

“Don’t you believe that you will have a son?” the stranger said. “Is anything too hard for the Lord? I promise you; I will return at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son.”

And when confronted, Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”

But He said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

The three men left and just as the Lord had said:

After the time went buy and at the very time God had told them, she had a son, just as God had promised!

Abraham named his son Isaac, which means, ‘laughter.’ He was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born.

Sarah said, “Who would believe that I would have a son in my old age? But God has brought me joy and laughter! Everyone who hears of this will laugh with me!”

Remember, our God can do such amazing things!

Goodbye, until next time; when we will learn what happened to Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah.

Until then, remember to say your prayers obey your mom and dad and do not forget to go to church and Sunday school next week.
