God's Covenant With Isaac

In the only chapter in Genesis devoted entirely to Isaac's life, we are struck by how similar Isaac's labors and decisions are to his father's. On the other hand, there are important and instructive differences as well.In Isaac's story we are reminded that we are not fated to follow in the failures of our parents; and yet also we see how difficult it is for a child to transcend the example of his or her parents. And through it all, we see how desperately we need God's grace as parents, as children, as believers.The only hope for Isaac’s children, for your children, or for you is the only hope of all the nations: the Promised Seed, the Savior Jesus.
