Sermon for Sunday October 22, 2023

This is the first message in our new worship series, “Growing Into God’s Purpose.” It’s often said in church circles that “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.” We’re going to spend a few weeks exploring this idea by working through the story of Jacob in Genesis 25-35.

This week we’ll be looking at the start of Jacob’s story in Genesis 25 & 27, and reflect on how there’s good news in the fact that he seems like last person God would choose to be a part of his mission to bless the world.
