So you’ve committed to reading through the Bible…why? What’s the point? Are you reading to say that you’ve actually read through the book? Are you reading because someone dared you? Are you reading to learn more about the history of the religion?

Or…are you reading because you are seeking after God? Does your soul thirst for His presence? Are you craving a different way of living?
As I read Genesis 35, I’m struck by what I read in the first few verses. Jacob has this intimate relationship with God. He has REAL conversations with Him. And these REAL conversations that Jacob has with God, initiate REAL change/action in his life.
- Jacob up and moves his family
- Jacob directs his family to get rid of all the man-made idols that they have accumulated
- Jacob sets up an altar to God
When was the last time that you 1) had an encounter with God that was undeniable and 2) caused real change in your life?
