03 Apr Blessing – Molly Keifer
What was it about Isaac’s blessing over Jacob (wasn’t he totally scammed?) that was called faith from God’s perspective? Weren’t they just words and couldn’t he just have cancelled them out and released them over Esau instead? What’s with blessing, really? You might be surprised to realize the intentions of God around this concept of blessing. It was actually a part of the creation story, Noah’s story, Abraham’s story and now central for our story! Jesus taught blessing and got His friends to practice blessing. Through the Scripture, testimonies of blessing and some encouragement, catch a hold of the power of blessing!
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Mom to Aiden, Cole, and Anna: three perfect gifts from God.
Identical twin sister to Mary (we confuse others often).
Worshipper of the One. Karaoke enthusiast. Runner of long distances.
Frequenter of Coffee shops (4 shot espresso decaf with a splash of cream and a drizzle
of vanilla syrup).I love pastoring Thrive Vineyard Church in the Chicago burbs with Kevin. I get to study the Word and listen to the Holy Spirit about His vision for us as a group of people who want to live out the goodness of God. And then I get to partner with Holy Spirit to preach the good news and encourage others to know Jesus, to walk with Him, and to let Him fulfill their deepest desires and destiny.
Most of all, I love the transforming power of the gospel and the breaking in of the Kingdom of God on earth today. I love catching God’s heart for us as His people and then discovering HOW we can be His light in our city. We live in an amazing time and are so blessed to have such a generous Father!
