Transcript of Sarah

Syd Mink
Genesis 18
Sarah's life teaches us that when we feel doubtful or afraid, we should remember what God said to Abraham...
Summary (verses 1-2)
•The Lord appears to Abraham at the hottest part of the day while Abraham's chilling on his porch.
•Abraham sees three men. The three men switch in and out with God throughout.

Summary (verses 3-7)
•Abraham shows hospitality, bowing to them as a sign of respect, begging them to honor him with their presence, and serving up a feast.
A son promised to Abraham and Sarah

The lord appeared to Abraham by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the entrance of his tent in the heat of the day.
He looked up and saw three men standing near him. When he saw them, he ran from the tent entrance to meet them, and bowed down to the ground.
verses 3-5
He said, “My lord, if I find favor with you, do not pass by your servant.
Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.
Let me bring a little bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on—since you have come to your servant.” So they said, “Do as you have said.”
And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, “Make ready quickly three measures[c] of choice flour, knead it, and make cakes.”
Abraham ran to the herd, and took a calf, tender and good, and gave it to the servant, who hastened to prepare it.
Then he took curds and milk and the calf that he had prepared, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree while they ate.
They said to him, “Where is your wife Sarah?” And he said, “There, in the tent.”
Then one said, “I will surely return to you in due season, and your wife Sarah shall have a son.” And Sarah was listening at the tent entrance behind him.
Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I have grown old, and my husband is old, shall I have pleasure?”
Summary (verses 9-12)
While they're eating, the three guests ask where his wife Sarah is. Abraham points to her tent. One of the Guests declares that she will have a son. Sarah eavesdrops on the conversation and chuckles to herself because she's already gone through menopause. The lord questions Abraham about Sarah's laughter.

Verses 13-15
Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’
Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”
But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

Verses 9-12
Verses 6-7
Verses 13-15 Summary
Are you laughing at me?
Who is this Sarah?
Sarah was one of several women in the Bible who were unable to have children. This distresed her because God had promised that her husband, Abraham would be the father of the Jewish nation, with descendants more numerous than the stars in the sky.
Imagine God promising you that- and then you're unable to have kids... frustrating, right?
Sarah thought she was the problem...
After waiting many years, Sarah convinced Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden, Hagar, to produce an heir. That was an accepted practice in ancient times. The child born of that encounter was named Ishmael.
Thats Weird...
Gods promise isn't forgotten...
Three heavenly beings, disguised as travelers, appeared to Abraham. (Genesis 18). God repeated his promise to Abraham that his wife would bear a son. Even though Sarah was very old, she did conceive and deliver a son. They named him

Other verses Sarah is talked about in...
Genesis 21:1
Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised.
Sarah's Fam
Dad Terah

Husband Abraham

that's all we know...
Genesis 21:7
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."
Hebrews 11:11
And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.
Sarah's strengths
Sarah was obedient to her husband Abraham. Even when he passed her off as his sister, which resulted in her almost being taken as phaoroh's wife
Sarah was protective of Isaac and loved him

Sarah's weaknesses
At times, Sarah doubted God. She had trouble believing God would fulfill his promises, so she tried to make her own solutions.
Learning from Sarah:
Waiting for God to act in our lives may be the hardest task we ever face. It's also easy to become dissatisfied when God's solution does not match our expectations.
"Is anything too hard for the Lord?
Sarai became Sarah, meaning princess or noblewoman
