Flawed But Blessed
In this five-part series, Pastor Novotny walks through the accounts of Jacob in the Bible. The overall theme throughout these accounts is that despite Jacob’s lies, deceit, and dishonor, God’s grace prevailed. You will realize that though you are flawed like Jacob, God’s forgiveness and love are constant, and you can look to the Lord, trust in him, and see that he is with you all the time.
