    Presence
    God met Jacob in Bethel and that place became a place of worship. God promises that since his presence is always with his people everywhere we are can be a place of worship.

    Deceit
    Many of the characters of the Bible are subject to deceit. We are as well. But the comforting truth is that God's plan is never hijacked by deception. His purposes will always be worked out.

    Chosen
    Our culture says choose the best, the brightest, the fastest, and the biggest. But when God chooses He tends to choose the unconventional, the unlikely. That is the pattern of the Kingdom.

    Sacrifice
    God still provides a lamb so his people will live.
     
    Abraham's one and only son whom he loved was delivered from the ultimate sacrifice. God's Son was not. But by His sacrifice we were delivered.

    Covenant
    Every covenant includes a rite of admission. For Abraham that right was the act of circumcision for all the men who were part of his household. In circumcision they showed they agreed to be counted among God's covenant people. For Christians, we enter into that covenant relationship through the action of baptism.

    Priest King
    You would think that Melchizedek is an insignificant character in Scripture. He appears in the life of Abram and is gone after four verses. But this fleeting character is unfolded for us in Psalm 110 and Hebrews 6 and 7 as a compelling type for the Messiah, both king and priest. In this type he presents two convincing truths: God can be trusted, and our salvation is sure.

    Conquest
    God promises to reestablish his kingdom, and He invites his people to take part in advancing that charge. Abram embraces that call in worship. We can continue it in the worship of witness.

    Diversity
    God introduced diversity to unify humanity in fulfilling its mission. However, humanity tends to interpret diversity as disunity. God reversed this flow through the blood of Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ we can experience unity in the midst of our diversity.

    Faithfulness
    Eve undoubtedly felt like God's promise of victory over the serpent was lost when one son was killed and the other exiled. Perhaps, she felt as though she had received the stomping. However, God is always faithful and opened another pathway to promise fulfillment ... a promise finally realized in Christ.

    Sin: Paradise Lost
    Adam and Eve were placed in paradise, but it didn't take long for paradise to be lost to sin. Since we live in a world that follows Adam into sin, we too don't experience paradise.
     
    Yet, in this story of the fall into sin is the beginning of a message of hope and grace. God gives this couple two signs of his ultimate victory over sin, and paradise restored.
