Last Sunday I began a new series on Old Testament characters. The point of the series is to explain how God draws us near. This sermon covers the character of Jacob in Genesis. God draws us near by exposing the true struggle in our lives. When we wrestle with God, we want something from God instead of God Himself. When we wrestle with God, our wounds are a sign of His grace. When we wrestle with God, we should obey even when it doesn’t make sense.
