Stairway to Heaven
Did Jacob have a ladder? Did he climb it? Are we to climb it? Could we? In this startling story, even Jacob’s sins couldn’t separate him from the loving presence of God, nor could they prevent him ultimately from inheriting what God had promised. Not Jacob, but the grace of God ultimately triumphs in his life. Though his sins had serious and lasting consequences, the promise is ultimately fulfilled because of God’s faithfulness, and in spite of Jacob’s unfaithfulness. Let’s see what Jesus himself has to say about all of this.
