Waiting for the Promise

Genesis 23

April 25, 2020 • Tim Cain

At this point most of us probably find ourselves longing for things to go back to normal. We feel like strangers in our own world and we miss the way things used to be. Abraham and Sarah were very familiar with these feelings. For over 60 years they wandered together as strangers and foreigners waiting for God to give them the land he had promised. Today we are going to talk about the temptations they faced as they waited and see what it was that enabled them to trust God while feeling like a stranger in the world. I believe that the things we can learn in this passage could be really helpful for all of us as we learn how to navigate these strange times.

How do you respond to conflict? In this passage we get a play by play view of how both Laban and Jacob responded to a major conflict between them. As we look at each of their responses and consider why they did what they did I think we will be able to learn a lot about ourselves. Ultimately we will see how the Gospel is meant to change the way we approach conflict.
