Origin Stories, Part 6: The God of the Undeserving

Sep 25, 2022    Chuck Garner

God chooses to identify Himself as the "God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob".
As we've seen, Abraham was a man of great faith, so it makes sense that God would claim him. But God also claims Isaac and Jacob. Isaac is insignificant and Jacob is a liar. Why would God claim them? Because God is attracted to weakness and His people never get what they deserve.
