In our series on the family through the book of Genesis we come across the episode where Jacob comes face to face with his old foe Esau. Jacob is afraid for his life and his family but God meets him first and breaks him. As a result, Jacob and Esau reconcile and are able to move past their old hurts.
The message coming up is titled, “RESOLVING FAMILY CONFLICT.” There is no drama like family drama. We love our family but sometimes they can get on our last nerves. We will learn from God’s Word how to resolve family conflict. This will be a good one.
We will be focusing on the characters of Esau and Jacob. They were both born in the same home but with different bents. Why does that happen? Why is it that kids growing up in the same home turn out so different? This message will help us deal with this question. It will also teach us seek God’s grace in parenting. We desperately need it!
We live in a world that is defiled by sin and evil. It clouds our vision of God. Every time we try to visualize God, some impurity of life gets in the way. It requires a solid commitment to repent from sin and submit to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Then and only then will we see the hand of God all around us. As Hebrews 12:14 also reminds us, “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” In this message we will seek to answer three important questions: 1. Who are the pure in heart? 2. What does it mean to see God? & 3. How does this blessing work?
