Jacob vs Laban

undefined

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: May 13, 2018 | Text: Genesis 30:25-31:55

Sermon Summary

In the struggle between Jacob and Laban we see familiar patterns of faith and fear, obedience and compromise. But through it all we also see more proof that God is in control and always keeps his promises, protecting and providing for His chosen people, and moving his plan of redemption forward through imperfect people, all by His gracious power.

Rachel vs Leah

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: May 6, 2018 | Text: Genesis 29:31-30:24

Sermon Summary

This birth narrative recounts how the sons of Jacob were born, and each announcement of a name is accompanied by a comment and an explanation of the meaning of that name. Each name expresses the hopes, desires, assumptions of Rachel and Leah. As we work our way through we get a lot of insight into the hearts of these two women and their painful circumstances. It's against this dark background of pain and hurt and envy and longing that we see the grace of God shine brightly.
