You Can Call Me Jake

You Can Call Me Jake

Jacob spent most of his life fighting to get what he felt was rightfully his. Then, one night, he met a foe he couldn’t defeat. Jacob’s wrestling match with God left him with a limp and a new name. Developing a durable faith requires us to engage in the tough battles. Through the intimacy and struggles that come with wrestling God in the discipleship process, we will also leave with a limp and a better understanding of our true identity in Jesus.
