Bible Passage: Genesis 25:19-26, Genesis 32:22-26
Jacob Wrestled with God. Like, physically wrestled with God. All night long.
For many people, the idea of wrestling with God is a terrifying concept. Yet God blessed Jacob when the wrestling match was over.
The result? Jacob left with a wrenched hip.
Also, God gave Jacob a new identity and a new name.
Jacob became Israel, the father of God’s People. His sons went on to become the 12 tribes of Israel.
In this sermon we learn why it’s important for us to wrestle with God.
