One of the most common misconceptions of discipleship is that there are different levels and that one is somehow better than the other. Discipleship is a journey, a progression, a moving forward, a lifetime of learning how to apply the same principles in new and more meaningful ways. There is a deepening of dependence, understanding, learning, serving, sacrifice, applying knowledge so it may turned into wisdom. In the same way as a child grows up and a parent will tell them “you are ready”, there are times in our discipleship journey where Jesus looks at us, knowing we are ready to take the next step…even when we don’t feel ready. This next series of Mark we see Jesus doing just that with his disciples.

Esau

Well, that's what we're going to be talking about for the next six weeks at Beulah! We're going to explore the lives of six characters from the Old Testament who experienced interruption—how they were interrupted, what they did when they were, and how that can inform the way that we live today. And we're going to do that by exploring characters that we typically don't talk about. This weekend, we'll be kicking off our series by unpacking the story of Esau—not Isaac, but Esau the red-haired brother—and how he navigated the interruptions in his life.

Scripture References: Genesis 28:6-9, Genesis 27:41-46, Genesis 27:1-40, Genesis 26:34-35, Genesis 25:27-34, Genesis 25:19-26

From Series: "Life Interrupted"

Every time we’re interrupted, there’s a now, and a not yet. The interruption happened, the now is happening, but the not yet has not yet happened. Our choices between the now and the not yet, will determine what that not yet will look like. Over the next six weeks we are going to see the different ways that individuals in the Old Testament were interrupted, and how their now affected their not yet. Just like God wasn’t done with these individuals, He isn’t done with you. He is still writing your story.
