Theme - Today, we begin a six part sermon sermons on five matriarchs and patriarchs from the Old Testament. We will focus on Jacob, Deborah, David, Jeremiah, Ruth, and Abraham. The bible is like a large family album and by reviewing this album we will be able to see how God was able to use imperfect people to accomplish his purposes. We begin the series by focusing on Jacob, the grandson of Abraham, who needed a powerful dream, a taste of his own medicine, and a wrestling match with God before he finally realized who he was created to be.
