Jacob had ruined his life. He had lied to and cheated his family, and now he was about to pay! When his brother threatened to kill him, Jacob fled for his life, and while running away from his sin, he ran straight into God! Surprisingly, God met Jacob in love, and it changed his life. Sometimes we also try to run from the consequences of our sin, but we must remember that God’s love is greater than our sin! He longs to restore us to Himself if we will just surrender.
Will You Finish What You Start This Year?
It’s easier to start something than it is to finish it… It’s easier to get married than to stay married. It’s easier to have children than to raise children. It’s easier to start school than to finish school. And most dangerous of all, it’s easier to receive Jesus as Savior than it is to follow Him all the days of your life as Lord. One thing is sure… this year you will be tempted to quit something you shouldn’t quit. Will you be prepared to use Christ as your example to press through those times as He pressed through for you?
