Jacob: When God Crossed His Arms (Grace)
The series “Where Are They Now?” is concluded at Elevation Church with Judah Smith’s message about the story of Jacob and his grandsons. Joseph brought his eldest son to receive the double portion of blessing as is customary for the firstborn offspring. Instead, Jacob crossed his arms and blessed the younger son, Ephraim, who didn’t deserve the blessing. The Old Testament story is a picture of how God works. Jesus is the elder son, Manassah, who died for our sins. We are Ephraim, the undeserving. The “elder son” died and gave to us the gift of grace.
