The Man Who Wrestled With God (4): Sermons on the Old Testament character of Jacob.
Reading: Genesis 29:1-30
Since his encounter with God at Bethel there seems to be marked progress in Jacob. In this next part of the story we see him showing great patience & working honestly out of costly love for his future wife Rachel. In fact everything seems to be going very well until out of the blue Laban serves him a taste of the medicine he dealt his brother. This is not some kind of divine payback however, but rather the opportunity to be led forward in a divine process of transformation. In the same way getting ‘a taste our own medicine’ can be good for our soul when like Jacob we have the promise of God’s presence. For when we truly know God is with us & for us even the hardest trails have a way of softening our hearts. This is the grace of severe mercy.
