God will be with Us to the End of the Age

Promises can be either reassuring, or heartbreaking. Promises can either bring hope, or their breaking can dash hopes. Think of Jacob—on his own, now married, two wives, eleven sons and one daughter, far from family he hasn’t seen in over fourteen years… The promise of God is so important: that God is committed to him, that God will bring him back, that God will make his family like the dust in number, that God will change the world through Jacob’s family. And look at that family! This promise of God is a statement of profound grace—and it calls from Jacob obedience to the good and trustworthy word of God. That lies—as we will see—at the heart of this bizarre path of Jacob’s enriching. This is not a formula for financial success but a statement of grace received by faithful obedience!
