Jacob’s Epilogue

February 25, 2013

It's still Jacob's story, but the story isn't about him anymore, it's about his daughter, Dinah, and about his sons, and one in particular, Joseph. It's about Shechem and Egypt. The time came when the picture was obviously a lot bigger than Jacob. Not because it had to fit more people in, but because it was God's picture all along, not Jacob's. Is the world the backdrop of your life? Or is your life one irreplaceable piece of the big, big picture of what God is doing in the world?

Jacob’s Journey Home

February 18, 2013

It's time to come home. Twenty years abroad gave him much, but for what? It's time to go home, deal with his brother and become who the person this journey was all about in the first place. Sometimes we go and learn, explore and discover, and we learn it wasn't about all the learning and getting, but the learning and getting was preparing us for what's next. Head home, cross the river, meet God - face to face.

Jacob Abroad

February 11, 2013

Jacob has some becoming to do and it isn't going to happen at home. He tricked his brother Esau and he's in trouble with him. He needs to leave his promised land to find what's next. Even though his purpose seems to be to get married, the journey leads to much more. Jacob gets married, has a lot of kids and gets rich. He tricks and gets tricked. As we walk through this part of Jacob's crazy journey with him, we find out how God kept God's promises to him and how God keeps promises to us through our life's journeys, even when our journey is different than we ever thought it would be.

Jacob Begins

February 4, 2013

"What's next" isn't a question, it's your next step. So what will you do? The book of Genesis tells the story of Jacob and how he was part of God's 'what's next.' This not-so-heroic hero was a mixture of destiny, decisions and deception... as well as utter grace. This February we will trace Jacob's story (Genesis 25-35) and see how God worked in, through and despite him, and get some clues about how God works in, through and despite us to create 'what's next'.
