“Like Father, Like Son”
As his father yielded to God, Isaac also totally yielded to his father allowing him to bind him to the altar without hesitation or resistance. Isaac was submissive to his father’s will and authority, and in being so, he was also submissive to God who was responsible for the whole experience.
The amazing truth is that God works through fathers and mothers, too. God uses parents to develop mature Christ like attitudes in the lives of sons and daughters. Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
