Gems from Genesis: God Speaks to Our Hearts

Gems from Genesis: God Speaks to Our Hearts Sermon Audio Here

Genesis 28:10-19

When we’re children, we get excited during Christmas or birthdays because we can receive gifts. But as we grow older, we learn that sometimes it’s more fun to GIVE a gift than to receive one. Imagine how excited God must be to give us the gifts He has in store for us!

How Does God Show Us He Loves Us?

God Has Plans For Us ~ Genesis 28:10-15

  • 10/14 reminder: this is a specific story FOR JACOB; we’re not him. These are specific promises that God gives to Jacob
  • 15 This specific reminder to Jacob can ALSO be a reminder of God’s character for us. God is with Jacob; God is with US.

God’s Plans Change Us ~ Genesis 28:16-19

  • 16 “I was not aware” we don’t always see when God is at work… but He’s working in us!
  • 17 afraid=not scared, but WHOA, this is AWESOME
  • 18/19 Jacob sets apart this rock as a reminder that HE has been set apart by God

God Brings Us Into His Family ~ Romans 8:14-16

God chooses US, just like He chose Jacob. He calls us His own, and we get to be a part of God’s family. We belong to God, and there’s nothing we can do to break God’s promise to us.
