Trading Your Birthright

Texts: Psalm 119:105-112; Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23; Romans 8:1-11, 25-30; Genesis 25:19-34; John 6:22-27; Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:6-8, 8:15-17

The Jacob & Esau narrative reminds us of Adam & Eve, and how they traded the greatest birthright of all, being made in the Image of God. As Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve, we too have all traded our birthrights, and yet God seeks to redeem us and welcome us to His Table.
