Message: “Fight Club” from Jeff Lawrence

Fight Club

What does it look like to have a life-changing encounter with God? It’s an important question, maybe even an intimidating question. This week’s sermon looks at one of the most famous scenes in all the Bible: Jacob wrestling with God. God engages Jacob at the point of his greatest weakness and transforms his life completely while also leaving him limping toward home.

From Series: "Relentless Grace: The Life of Jacob"

Most of us believe in God’s grace—at least in theory. But we often struggle to trust it in our everyday lives, so we live with by an internal scoreboard of our successes and failures. Yet over and over again, God uses messy and sinful people (like us) to fulfill his plans. This series follows the life of Jacob as it wanders a twisted path filled with grasping, striving, and deceit as well as redemption, blessing, and beauty. We will see how the gospel triumphs as he learns to lean upon God rather than self. Through his journey, we will learn to grapple with our own shortcomings as we live by faith in God’s relentless grace.
