Purpose: Turning Emotion Into Action
Working through the hard things is not always easy. But our work is to trust God and let go of the control we desire in our lives. Russ Ewell, Nick Straw and Ray Kim sit down to discuss how the key to turning our emotion into action is trusting God and allowing God to know us more deeply and intimately through the hard things in life, which produces transformative change in us through the process.
Genesis 22:1 NIV  Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.
Genesis 22:2 NIV  Then God said, “Take your son , your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
Genesis 22:3-5 NIV  Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.  On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance.  He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you. ”
