Breaking Bad

Do you ever think that small decisions won’t lead to big trouble? It seems like Jacob’s troubles are behind him, now that Laban and Esau are out of the way. But sometimes, a place of comfort can become a place of compromise. In Genesis 34, it all takes a tragic turn as one devastation follows another. Scripture does not hide the ugly side of human nature, and we are left looking for God’s deliverance from it all.

From Series: "Relentless Grace: The Life of Jacob"

Most of us believe in God’s grace—at least in theory. But we often struggle to trust it in our everyday lives, so we live with by an internal scoreboard of our successes and failures. Yet over and over again, God uses messy and sinful people (like us) to fulfill his plans. This series follows the life of Jacob as it wanders a twisted path filled with grasping, striving, and deceit as well as redemption, blessing, and beauty. We will see how the gospel triumphs as he learns to lean upon God rather than self. Through his journey, we will learn to grapple with our own shortcomings as we live by faith in God’s relentless grace.
