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.
Several times in 1st and 2nd Timothy, Paul refers to the good warfare of the believer. He exhorts Timothy to be a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Many people compare Christianity to a peaceful walk in the park. To the contrary, it is a battle. But unlike earthly battles, God deems the Christian warfare “good”.
