Reading:

Genesis 21:1-7 (The Birth of Isaac) New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Isaac

21 Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac[a] to the son Sarah bore him. 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him. 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

6 Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” 7 And she added, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.”

Summary:

God fulfills His promises as Sarah delivers Isaac in her old age.  Choosing a verse from our scripture we will probe the meaning of the text.  What is the historical context, key words, unclear verses or the most obvious meaning? 

Memory Verse:

James 1:22  “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
