A Nation Begins

Jacob started as one, but Genesis 46:8-27 shows that by the time he was one hundred thirty years old, he had become seventy people. I have known families that large, but the difference between those families and Jacob’s family is that his continued to grow immensely until they became a nation.
The thing that set Jacob apart from all other families was his faith. Now, if you have the same faith he had, you form part of his family. Just how large is the family of Israel in the spirit?
Someday, provided we continue to walk with Christ, we shall meet all our brothers and sisters in the spirit.
