God Speaks our Language – Paul Young

God, as a great communicator, knows our love language. He acts in ways that demonstrate his profound respect for our individual ability to hear and understand him. He spoke to Abram when he asked him to sacrifice his son. But, unlike common interpretations of the story, it was not for himself that he asked the sacrifice. God was revealing to Abram, who had only a basic understanding of who God is and who had only known appeasement theology, another part of himself — that he is provider God. He will provide the sacrifice. God steps into our world and the boxes we’ve created for him to show us more of himself.

He suffered great loss as a child and young adult, and now enjoys the “wastefulness of grace” with his growing family in the Pacific Northwest.
