Jacob

Jacob - Genesis 25 Feed Me

Pastor Scott Martz
Jacob’s life began with a struggle. And it was a struggle from that point on because Jacob tried to make his way in the world through trickery and deception—the very meaning of the name “Jacob.” Jacob’s life became a series of events through which he ultimately wrestled with God. In this struggle, Jacob had to confront his old, deceptive self and find a new, faith-filled identity that rested on God’s grace. Jacob learned to trust his vision at Bethel of the ladder ascending into heaven and God’s gracious promise of his presence in Jacob’s life. In this first sermon in the series we see that both Jacob and his brother Esau have unhealthy appetites. So do we. We need a perfect savior to save us. That Savior is Jesus.
