Flight to Faith
Bible Text: Genesis 27:41-28:22 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Flight to Faith, Genesis
1. Hatred, murderous intentions and separation result from the disregard of God’s Word and deception which occur earlier in Genesis 27. Disregarding God’s Word in a family leads to all kinds of dysfunction.
2. Isaac warns Jacob against marrying a woman from among the Canaanites who would bring pagan belief and practices into the people of God. There are warnings in both Old and New Testaments about the people of God marrying outside the faith. 2 Corinthians 6:14-16 warns against being unequally yoked with unbelievers, not just in marriage, but in other relationships as well. Marrying outside the faith will lead to compromises in a believer’s life and will result in not being able to be wholly committed to the Lord in worship and service.
3. God sometimes has to separate us from the familiar to get us alone with Him, to isolate us to Himself. He does this often through difficulties, trials, unexpected challenges, or a change of circumstances. He does this to reveal Himself to us in a new way and to remind us that He is here, He is near, and that He is real.
