8-10-14: Jacob's Ladder

Scripture: Genesis 28:10-19a

The theme of God's searching love unfolds and deepens with each successive scripture reading. As he sleeps, Jacob dreams of a ladder rising to heaven with angels of the Lord ascending and descending upon it. God's salvific love does not just appear in one spot of hallowed ground in the desert, it pursues us every minute of every day. God's searching love heals us (and all creation), making us children of adoption, children of the Most High. Our proper response to such love is deep gratitude, not hostility to those who have not yet found their way.See you Sunday.

Yours on the journey,Pastor B.J.
