In this episode Pastor John returns to Joseph as the focus of the story in an exploration of his trials and successes in Egypt. He explores, in particular, the conflict with Potiphar's wife and how Christians often face trials and unfair affliction, but, as it says in Romans 8:39, "What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Passages covered are Genesis 39.
In this first episode of a series on the story of Joseph, we see how God uses imperfect people and difficult situations for his glory and to help his people. From the sermon: "God uses men and women where they are in their circumstances to accomplish his purposes. God can also guide
people into making decisions and taking actions that suit his purposes." Passages covered are Genesis 37:2-22 with references from elsewhere.
Last time, we examined the question of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.This week, the question we will explore is, what are disciples of Jesus to do? Pastor John explores what Christians are commanded to do in their lives - not to be saved, but to serve the Lord. Whether in our work, our family lives, or with our enemies, God commands us to aim high, to pray, to love Him, and to love one another.
