Jacob’s Ladder

And he dreamed and behold there was a ladder set up on the earth and the top of it reached to heaven. And behold the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. Genesis 29:12 ESV

While running from his brother Jacob was so tired that he lay down to sleep with his head on a rock. That night God sent Jacob an intriguing dream. In spite of being totally undeserving of mercy God chose to show Himself to Jacob standing at the top of a staircase or ladder to Heaven. I always thought this was a pretty neat story but never got the part about what it had to do with me.

Then one day as I was reading my Bible I realized that in my hands was Jacob’s staircase. It is an amazing book able to reach all the way from Heaven to earth. He is standing at the top to tell us of His loving plan and assuring us of His grace towards us through Jesus Christ our Lord!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
