Birth of Isaac

Genesis 21:1-21

This story is very simple, yet extremely powerful. Abraham and Sarah had a son and they named him Isaac. While that may seem very normal and uneventful, let me fill you it on the back story.

Abraham and Sarah were around 100 years old and 90 years old, respectively. They were ancient! When Abraham learned that he was going to have a son in his old age from the Lord, he laughed. And when Sarah heard from the Lord that she was going to give birth to a son in her old age, she laughed. No wonder the son’s name was Isaac, which means “he laughs!”

In addition, the Lord God, the God of heaven and earth, had spoken to Abraham and had promised him a son. This son would be the first in a long line of descendants that would rival the number of stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. The birth of Isaac meant that God had indeed been faithful to the promise He had made to Abraham.
