We all face the temptation to fake it; to put on a mask and hide, or send our avatar into situations we don’t want to face. “Just Call Me Jacob” was originally preached in a series called Death To Selfie in 2014 at Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC. In it, Pastor Steven Furtick warns us, “God can’t bless who we pretend to be.”
Pastor Steven builds a compelling message about vulnerability, honesty, and self-acceptance from the story of a guy in the Bible named Jacob from Genesis 32 verses 22-29. As Pastor Steven walks us through Jacob’s life, we’re given the opportunity to evaluate our own.
Jesus asks in the gospel of Luke chapter 9 verse 25, “What good is it to gain the whole world but lose yourself?” What good is it to get the car, get the house, get the position, get the credit, but lose your very self in the process?
That was the story of Jacob and that is the story for many of us. But in a powerful turn at the end of “Just Call Me Jacob” we discover that God doesn’t just love the parts of our life that we polish to present to others, God is the God of Jacob too. Through His offer of grace, God accepts us just as we are.
We believe this message will set you free to feel the love of God.
