The Wound of Grace and the Limp of Faith

Genesis 32:1-33:20                 July 7, 2013             Link for audio/video/document

 We are just like Jacob. Our sinful nature will not die easily. We are also like Jacob in that our greatest struggles in life are with ourselves and with God. We tend to wrestle out our struggles with ourselves and God in wrestling matches with one another whenever our expectations are not being met. By God’s grace He wounds us so that we will always have a limp in our walk of faith with God to remind us who is our weakness and who is our strength. Our only hope is to desperately cling to God - and to humbly confess our sin of our self-sufficiency and the reality our great need for Him.
