God changed Jacob’s life and gave him a new name, Israel. Jesus came so that we might have a changed life, forgiven of sin. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Jesus’ death and resurrection provided sinful people the way to be adopted into God’s family. When we are adopted into the family of God we also receive a new name—children of God. (John 1:12)

Genesis 31-33


Key Verse

Galatians 3:29



• Why do you think Jacob refused to let go of God?

• On whom did Jacob’s future depend? Who is in control of our future?
