Discussion Questions:

Do the choices we have made in life limit or hinder God’s plans? Explain. 

Is your ability to bring glory to God and good to his people today, limited by the choices you have made in the past? Explain.

Why did God call Jacob back to Bethel? What does God's call say about his character?

How does God’s call of Jacob resemble his call to people today?

Jacob and his family cleansed themselves in response to God’s call. What did that look like? In what way is cleansing a part of one’s response to Christ? Is cleansing something that God does, we do, or both? Explain.

God reaffirmed the changing of Jacob’s name in Genesis 35. In what way does Christ give us a new identity? Why is that significant? What happens to our old identity? 

By Genesis 35, Jacob’s life had been dramatically impacted by past choices. In what way does God’s call give him hope for the future? Though our lives may be unchangeably shaped by decisions and/or events in our past, how can the future that Christ offers keep us from discouragement or despair?

How can you keep the promises of Christ in the forefront of your mind each day?
