"THE BLESSING OF A NEW NAME"

Rev. Lon Lorton

October 29, 2017

Genesis 32:24-29

A new life can emerge out of a new name.

Jacob was alone with God - finally.

Jacob was broken by God.

Jacob was blessed by God.

Many people do not feel blessed because we do not want to allow God to break us of whom we think we can be on our own.

Jacob was finally found to be leaning on God.
