Genesis 31:17-55 In these Jacob-chapters of Genesis, we have repeatedly seen Jacob assume that the blessings in his life – the wives and children, the wealth in flocks and herds, the protection from Laban – were the results of his own decisions and actions. In truth, God was the...

Genesis 30:25-43Undeserved Blessing In this passage, two master tricksters – Jacob and Laban – make a business deal involving flocks of sheep and goats. Then each man slyly tries to gain advantage over the other. Before the deal can be implemented, Laban removes the spotted and...

Genesis 27:1-29This Is a Mess! Rebekah instigated and plotted the masquerade. Jacob piled lie on lie to deceive. Esau despised his birthright. Isaac was ruled by his physical appetites. All were messed up people. As Pastor Shannon aptly expressed it, the claws of sin had dug into each one...

Genesis 26:1-16Déjà Vu, All Over Again Pastor Dave detailed nine aspects of this narrative about Isaac that are repetitions of events in his father Abraham’s life. Our first reaction to the passage is to dismiss it as redundant and tedious. Thank God for church...

Genesis 17:1-14 A recurrent theme through several chapters of Genesis has been the one-sided nature of God’s covenant with Abram. God’s promises to Abram depended only on His own faithfulness and performance, not Abram’s. His covenant of salvation with us is likewise...
