Of Hope and Rocks

Passage:Genesis 28:10-19

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Suffering

Hope is vital to life. When we lose hope, we lose the ability to live. In a world that, as St. Paul writes in Romans 8, is filled with groaning and longing for redemption, what hope do we have? Today we look at the life of a young man named Jacob, who well knew what it meant to hit rock bottom and what God did in that moment. In a well known vision, God visits Jacob who both sees something remarkable, and hears something powerful. God's intervention gives us the substance and basis of our hope in Jesus Christ.
