Wrestling with God - Ash Wednesday, February 10, 2016 - Pastor Steve Brown

Faith and Life Podcast

Release Date: 02/11/2016

We all “wrestle” with God over particular issues or experiences in our lives and the lives of others. It could be our own suffering or the suffering of others. Our wrestling with God over these matters is a reflection of the brokenness we have because of our sin. The great truth about God is that he strives with us through our wrestling with him. God does not abandon us. The account of Jacob wrestling with God recorded in Genesis 32 will be the theme passage for Wednesdays in Lent. During the Ash Wednesday worship people will be invited to fill out and turn in cards that list the matters that move them to “wrestle” with God. In the following Wednesdays, some of those matters will be addressed in the sermons. The title for the Wednesday Lenten series is “Wrestling With God”.
After hearing this sermon, we hope you will be honest with God and identify the issues or experiences over which you “wrestle” with God. Ask God to bless you through your wrestling with him.
