Genesis 22 - Key

v12

And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son] from me.

What was it that Abraham's willingness to sacrifice Isaac showed? It showed that he feared God, and we should fear the Lord the same way.

Application

v3
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

We've seen a pattern of this behavior so many times. Because Abraham feared the Lord, he rose up early in the morning. For my application, I'll do the same.
