The Story of Sarah
Sarah, a prominent figure in the biblical narrative, holds a special place in the hearts of believers at Victory Life Baptist Church. Her story, as depicted in the book of Genesis, serves as a testament to the power of faith and perseverance. In Genesis 18:10-15 and 21:1-7, we gain valuable insights into Sarah's remarkable journey.
Genesis 18:10-15 - The Promise
Within these verses, we witness an extraordinary encounter between Sarah, her husband Abraham, and three heavenly visitors. They convey the promise of a son to Sarah, despite her advanced age. Initially, Sarah responds with laughter, finding the promise incredulous. However, as the divine plan unfolds, Sarah's doubts transform into unwavering faith.
Genesis 21:1-7 - The Fulfillment
Years later, the promise made to Sarah becomes a reality. In her old age, she gives birth to Isaac, the long-awaited child who carries on the divine covenant. Sarah's joy and gratitude overflow as she witnesses God's faithfulness and providence.
