Jacob's struggle by the Jabbok is not only a pivotal moment in Old Testament History but a great metaphor for our lives as Christians. In one way or another we are often wrestling with God. We are wrestling to make sense of God's plan for our lives. We are wrestling with discipleship. We are wrestling with some of the more challenging aspects of Christian Theology. Yet in our persistence we are blessed and we discover over and over again God's name for us in Christ, we are children of God, sons and daughters.
