God Awareness

Gen 30:25-31:55 – How aware are you of God’s working in your life on a daily basis?  Jacob’s up to his old tricks again, but God continues to provide for and protect Jacob in spite of Jacob.  Will Jacob grow in God awareness?  Will you?

I am with you…

Genesis 28:10-29:14a – Do God’s promises still apply to a trickster like Jacob?  Surprisingly, yes.  As God first speaks to Jacob, we’re challenged to re-think our priorities and pay attention to the outworking of God’s plan in our lives. God is near to tricksters.

Genesis 22 – Unbelievably, God tells Abraham to kill his son Isaac and offer him as a burnt offering.  What will Abraham do? Through Abraham and Isaac we learn invaluable lessons about faith and God’s grand plan to provide a substitute for sinners.

A sign

Genesis 17 – Faith is believing what God says, but we struggle to do just that!  As God re-affirms His covenant with Abram, we’re encouraged to live lives of faith – even when God’s promises seem too good to be true.

Cursed

Genesis 3:8-24 – Why is our world such a mess?  Why such beauty and joy yet sorrow and death?  Genesis 3 explains our sad state and leaves with with a faint hope.
