WHAT DID YOUR KIDS LEARN THIS WEEK?
God not only blessed Jacob, He gave Jacob a new name. Jacob meant “deceiver.” His new name was Israel, which meant “struggles with God.” God changed Jacob from the inside out. From then on, Jacob would look to God, not himself.
The same is true for us. When we trust in Jesus, God changes us from the inside out. Jesus forgives our sin and adopts us into His family. When we are adopted into the family of God, we also receive a new name—children of God!
