- Clyde Fant - "When Faith Lives in Egypt" (September 24, 2000)
Sermon start time: 04:12. Sermon end time: 26:26.
The story of Jacob's life is a reminder to us that we must keep our eye on the greater promises of God so as not to be distracted by the seductive wealth of the world. In doing this, we are actually better able to serve the world. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “‘People of every age need commitments beyond the self, need the meaning that commitments provide. Self-preoccupation is a prison…Commitments to larger purposes can get you out of prison.’ And that’s what freed Jacob from his fears, from his family, to the future. Jacob said, ‘Do not take me to the Mesopotamia of my fathers. Do not even bury me in the splendid Egypt of my son. But take me to the future of the promise to Canaan. That is my home.’”
