The Deceiver is Deceived

Jacob has escaped from his home, fleeing from the wrath of his brother Esau. He has also met God on the road and discovered Him to be bigger and more powerful than he had previously thought. But now he arrives at his destination, the house of his uncle Laban where he hoped to find a wife. As Jacob seeks a bride we will see what is in his heart and how it impacts his life practically.

Christ coloured relationships

Paul has been passionately proclaiming the supremacy of Christ and the amazing magnitude of the salvation we have received from Him.  When chapter 3 began we saw Paul proclaim that this salvation meant that our identity has been completely enveloped by this supreme Jesus… that God sees us as He sees His Son.  This has implications for our personal lives but also our relationships.  If Jesus is truly supreme and we are truly in Him then there is not one…
