While Esau's genealogy does not strike us as filled with great spiritual insight, we must agree that as part of Scripture it is filled with the characteristics Paul explains that all Scripture possesses. It too is profitable for our growth equipping us for every good work that God has created us in Christ Jesus to do. We perhaps understand it in this way when we understand Ch. 36 in light of its place in the lager story of Genesis and indeed the whole Bible. What we see in Esau's descendants are similarities that lead us to the conclusion that from a number of perspectives there really is very little difference between the Edomites and the Israelites. What we have to conclude is that the difference centers on God; God brought his word and revealed to Jacob's forefathers and Jacob where to live and how to live. God blessed Jacob and his descendants in a way in which he did not bless Esau. It tells us something profound about how the Christian should think about his or her difference in relation to the non-Christian and how the Church corporately should do as well.

Each of us has been created by God to play an important role within the story of narratives (emphasis on plural) that are uniquely occurring for all of us each day. Rather than quarreling about whose story is correct, we ought to examine our response to Jesus’ call to love and care for the world.
God’s messenger prepares people for Christ.
The more we connect ourselves to God and each other, the deeper we must go in clearly seeing our vision given to us from heaven above. Three things we need in fulfilling the vision for LifeHouse Fellowship together.
