Sermons on Genesis
Taking the well known quote “When memories exceed dreams, the end is near!” from business leader Michael Hammer and applying it to Christians & the church. Using the life and death of Joseph to encourage believers to continue to look forward to what God is going to do and not rest on the memories of the past no matter how good that past may be.
Using the story of Joseph, we can see that sometimes it is easier to see what God is doing when we look back at what was done. We usually, however, find ourselves confused and frustrated while we are in the middle of those situations.
Like Missy in Wm. Paul Young's novel, The Shack, most of us have a few nagging questions that we'd like to ask God when it comes to the problem of suffering. These are questions that Scripture also deeply cares about: Is God good? And finally, does God really care about me and my deepest pain?
Joseph went through a lot in his life. His brothers sold him into slavery and he was put in prison in egypt. Despite all that he went through he never lost sight of God. He knew God was in control and that his plans would be accomplished.
