  • The Wrestling Match

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Oct 5, 2015

    Jacob wrestles with an angel. He receives the name Israel, for he strives with God.

    Genesis 32:22-30 “The Wrestling Match” INTRODUCTION It has been a long time since I have attended a wrestling match. I do remember how exhausted the wrestlers looked after six minutes of wrestling. I can’t imagine what an all-night match would be like. I do know ...read more

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Dec 30, 2014
    based on 11 ratings

    A brief outline on which to build a prayer-night sermon.

    WRESTLING IN PRAYER Genesis 32:24-32 Jacob's wrestling, whilst factual and historical, is nevertheless a metaphor for prayer. 1. The place name, Jabbok, means pouring out, or emptying. This reminds me of the self-emptying of Christ (Philippians 2:7-8). It also reminds me of Jesus' ...read more

    based on 1 rating

    Yabboke was the place Jacob wrestled with God. See why Jacob was able to rename this place Peniel. This is a journey we all must make alone.

  • Genesis 32:1-32

    Contributed by John Shearhart on Nov 13, 2013

    God changes scheming, self-sufficient Jacob into praying, dependent Israel before bringing him back into the Promised Land.

    Jacob has spent the last twenty years in exile from the Promised Land after tricking his brother and taking the birthright and the blessing. But God has called him to go home now which means he must face his brother and his past. He’s uncertain and fearful but he obeys: And Jacob went on ...read more

  • Funeral For A Broken Family

    Contributed by Larry Turner on May 17, 2014

    Funeral based on forgiveness for a fractured family

    Today I want to tell you a story from the Bible. It is the story of two brothers, twins in fact. One was named Esau. The other was named Jacob. Esau was born first with Jacob holding onto his heel as if trying to stop his brother from being the first born. Because of their culture Esau would get a ...read more

    What Does It Take to be Transformed? Genesis 32:22-32 
Gladys Dunn was new in town and decided to visit the church nearest to her new apartment. She enjoyed the pretty sanctuary and the singing by the congregation, but the sermon went on and on. Worse, it wasn't very interesting. Glancing ...read more

  • Jacob's Prayer Series

    Contributed by Larry Turner on Apr 20, 2016

    Jacob was about to have three reunions. In the midst of then he gave us a model prayer.

    When I was in the work force I was in middle management for my employer. An employee of mine was named Eric. Eric was a bad boy. He had the much deserved reputation of being a partier and a womanizer. Some of his stories would even make me uncomfortable. He often got himself in binds at work but I ...read more

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Dec 6, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    Thesis: To know God’s will for your life comes from you knowing God personally, having an encounter with God like Jacob, Moses and Nehemiah did and then taking step one.

    Series: Rest in Our Scripture for this series - Isa. 40:29-31: "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope (rest) in the Lord will renew their strength. They soar on wings like eagles; ...read more
