Today we look at how God fights for us in the context of the story of Jacob.  Biblical history shows us in great detail that Jacob was NOT a great guy.  As a schemer and deceiver, Jacob saw what he wanted and always found a way to get it.  Even so, God not only fought with Jacob, He gave Jacob His blessing.  Why would God do this, when Jacob had not done anything up to that point in his life to have deserved God’s blessing?  Are we any different from Jacob?

Based on Genesis 32:22-32 and Mark 12:28-31.
