Abraham’s lived a long and satisfying life –

 Genesis 25: 1 Now Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah……Abraham’s ability to have children after the birth of Isaac.

 Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac;…..Isaac received the inheritance of the land and the blessings of the covenant. All who have Jesus as Savior are also heirs according to the promise. A

 … Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east……Abraham gave his other children gifts while living and then sent away to the east. The descendants of these children are ancestors of the Muslims today.

These are all the years of Abraham’s life that he lived, one hundred and seventy-five years. Abraham breathed his last and died in a ripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was gathered to his people……God had promised Abraham that he would die in peace at an old age. B For 100 years after leaving Haran at age 75, Abraham was satisfied with his life.

Abraham showed a clear picture of salvation through faith. C Abraham had occasional lapses of faith but the general nature of his life was to live by faith.

Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave in… 10 the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife……. It is interesting that Abraham’s sons Isaac and Ishmael came together for his burial in the cave with Sarah. These two sons were ancestors of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims.  

11 It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac……God blessed Isaac as promised. Someday I want to hear my Lord and master say Well done, good and faithful servant. D

 No matter our past we can still decide today to walk by faith finishing strong with a satisfied life. Are you currently satisfied with your life; is God satisfied with your life?
