Crippled, But Crowned

Crippled, But Crowned

Passage: Genesis 32:1-32

Preacher: Derrick McCarson

Series: Jacob: Schemer and Dreamer

Category: Jacob, Genesis , Surrender


There are two great spiritual landmarks in Jacob’s life. The first was Bethel where God came to him in a dream and reveled the ladder coming down from heaven. The second was on the banks of the Jabbok river when he wrestled with God. At Bethel Jacob first believed and at the Jabbok River he was finally broken. Jacob will emerge from this “dark night of the soul” a changed man both physically and spiritually. Jacob’s limp teaches us several important lessons about surrender in the Christian life.
