The Promised Blessing of God's Grace

Genesis 46:1-47:31         August 18, 2013           Link for audio/video/document

In looking back at his life Jacob saw the promised blessing of God’s grace at work throughout all of his life – despite the fatal infection of sin within his heart. God’s grace is not only blessing of God to give us what we don’t deserve - it is also the power of God to do the work of God in our hearts and lives, both for our good and for God’s glory. But know that the work of God’s grace in us does not offer us a life of peace and comfort, but rather God’s grace offers us a life of learning to constantly and continually rely on God. This is the promised blessing of God’s grace!
