The Grace of God and the Hard Way Home

Genesis 28:1-31:55                   June 30, 2013                 Link for audio/video/document

More often than not we fight to gain what God wants to give us in the first place. Though God’s power and resources and approval had been Jacob’s from the beginning – he still fought and scratched and lied and deceived to achieve what was already his, by the grace of God. Jacob faced the music, and he turned back to God. We begin the process of becoming that God intends us to be when we stop trusting ourselves and our efforts, and begin trusting and obeying God. Jesus is the grace of God that leads us to the glory of the hard way home!
