Wrestling With God

Genesis 25-35 tells us the story of Jacob, a very flawed man who spends his life wrestling with a very faithful God. Scoundrel, chosen heir, a man who wreaks havoc … how can God possibly bring anything good out of such a dysfunctional family? These chapters show us God’s relentless capacity to bless us even in the midst of our mess, and the power of his grace to save and transform even the worst of us.
