Sermons about Joseph
You can trust God whole-heartedly in every situation.
Having endured 13 years of unjust suffering God now greatly honors Joseph making him second only to Pharaoh in all of Egypt. God did this not just to honor his man but also for the saving of many lives.
Jacob dies, and Joseph's brothers are once again fearful of the coming retaliation and judgment that they surely deserve. They plead once again for Joseph's forgiveness under the guise of fabricated instructions from the dead father. Joseph uses this moment to teach them a lesson that they, and we, should never forget. Who are we? And who is God? Knowing the answer to those questions gives us an opportunity to be a blessing in the lives of others.
But the end of chapter 40 has these haunting words…Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot him. But God did not!
God has placed in each of us strengths or gifts we are to use to benefit others, to do for others what they cannot do for themselves. The fear of not measuring up to perfection keeps us from not using the gifts God has given us.
All of us have, at one time or another, found ourselves in the middle of Joseph's story, where God did something in us and through us when we least expected it. A big thank-you to members of our Friendship group for helping out with this morning's message (Friendship is ClearView's ministry for people with cognitive impairments).
In the life of Judah we see that while we may walk for many years in it, sin does not have to have the final victory. In the gospel, through Christ's sacrifice, we have hope for redemption!
Community Groups Pastor, Corey O'Quin, walks through the story of Joseph with the Campus location.
The story of Joseph is one displaying the providential working of God in the circumstances and lives of his people. It is also a story displaying the power of forgiveness, pointing towards the ultimate forgiveness found in Jesus Christ. Believe in Jesus, the true and greater Joseph who forgives and saves all who come to him.
