The Rev. Charlie Camlin: “Wrestling with God” (Genesis 32:27-28)
Have you ever wrestled with God, or with what His Word tells you to do? Probably none of us will ever wrestle with God in the way that Jacob found himself doing in Genesis 32–but the fine sermon Wrestling with God by the Rev. Charlie Camlin of Holy Trinity REC in Virginia applies truths from that account to our own lives. As Fr. Camlin says,
The passage which we have read this morning for our Old Testament lesson is probably one of the best known stories in all of Genesis. But it is a mysterious and deep passage. My experience with a passage such as this in Scripture is that it can often be one of the most edifying if we are willing to prayerfully meditate upon what is being said. Far from being just some story for Sunday school children, there are some wonderful truths embedded in this passage.
If you have the time, Fr. Camlin does indeed tell us about these “wonderful truths” – please check it out.
