The death and burial of Sarah. Abraham's purchase of her burial site gives us four important insights to learn from. We are to remain faithful even when we don't see the fulfillment of God's promises here on earth, because our true reward is in heaven.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. We are as close to God as we allow ourselves to be. We need Jesus everyday. The battle against our flesh is won through prayer and worship.

John wrote his gospel so that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing, we may have life in His name.

God's miracle...the fulfillment of His promise to Abraham in the birth of Isaac. However, although Isaac brought joy and worship, there was still the consequence of the flesh. Just as Ishmael & Isaac were in conflict, so the flesh and the Spirit do not harmonize. We must choose to "drive out" the flesh.
