Sovereign God. Sovereignty of God in bring to pass His purposes in history, exemplified in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. We must trust in the promises of God for our lives: He will fulfill all of them.
God changing lives. God's initiative in seeking and meeting Jacob and God's continual care for him and working with him and in him meant the only chance that a man like this should be changed spiritually.
Parental failure. A sad story of parental failure to educate their children in the fear of the Lord and in the light of God's revelation and promise. Over all, God was sovereign, fulfilling through the years His plans.
4 lessons. Four lessons: the OT is fulfilled in Jesus; the Kingdom of God came in Jesus; we can know the Father only in Jesus; the Christian life is a life yoked to Jesus. Jesus not only taught us lessons - He was The Lesson.
God's providence. Great lessons from God's providence working in our lives. This is our hope: that we know that God is working in us and through us, His children, and He knows the greater plan He has for us even when we do not know that.
Great wonder. The glorious thing for a Christian is that the Almighty God, creator of heaven and earth is his Father and the child of God can know Him and can be in a relationship with Him, saved and loved!
Faithful Redeemer. In Christ were fulfilled all the promises God made to His people about the redemption of His people. What a grace that a man should say Amen to all that God made in Christ and to build his life on this strong foundation!
