Message: “Stairway to Heaven” from Jeff Lawrence

Stairway to Heaven

What kind of people does God love? It’s an important question that this passage answers for us. To this point in Genesis, we’ve not seen anything admirable about Jacob — not his character, not his morality, not his spirituality. When Jacob is on the run, unsuspecting, and fast asleep, the gate of heaven opens to reveal God’s grace. Jacob was not looking for God, but God came looking for Jacob.

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.
