When God loved Abraham He asked,
Do you truly love me Abraham?
Abraham said, “Yes Lord, I do.”
Go to the mountain then
Lay Issac before me that I may test your love.
Abraham said “Yes Lord, I shall.”
The rational mind will call it, preposterous, evil, too much.
My logic would scream,
“The Lord I know, would never say so!”
“I am old and I imagine the voice of a false god!”
“My son would be warm by his mother’s side.
That’s what a good God would want.”
Answer me this,
Yes, Abraham had to lay down his little boy
His beloved, his heart on that mountain top.
But, whose love was proved on that mountain top?
Was it Abraham who was proven worthy?
Or was it a Good God, the loving Father
Who provided the lamb in place of the boy.
Not far from there, not long after
The good God chose to walk His beloved son
All the way up to a mountain top
He watched in silence, heaven bankrupt
As He nailed His heart to a cross
Instead of Issac, once and for all.
