  • Letting Go And Moving On

    Contributed on May 31, 2018
     | 791 views

    The power to forgive past offenses and create a better future is powerfully demonstrated by Joseph. How did he do it? He says, "Am I in the place of God," and "God intended it for good."

    LETTING GO AND MOVING ON—Genesis 50:12-21 A few years ago, I was visiting the town where I grew up, and I ran into someone I had never met, who knew my sister. As we made the connection, she asked me, “Are you the brother who pulled her doll in half?” Well, I guess I was pulling on the legs of ...read more

  • Shaping Your Legacy

    Contributed on May 31, 2018
     | 323 views

    Jacob's blessing of his sons provides an opportunity for hearers to think about their legacy. A legacy is built by choices. Our legacy does not control us. In Christ, we create a new legacy.

    SHAPING YOUR LEGACY—Genesis 49 Have you thought about what kind of legacy you will leave for your descendants? I’m not talking about wealth or property, but about the impact we have on the lives of others. We have all inherited a legacy. (Note to preacher: Personalize this!) I am a cheap ...read more

  • Living In A Strange Land

    Contributed on May 31, 2018
     | 186 views

    How do we stay true to our identity as God's people, in a culture that does not support godly values or faithfulness to Christ? Jacob faced that in Egypt. Don't be too easily...impressed...influenced...satisfied.

    Living in a Strange Land—Genesis 46:31—47:31 If you have kids, you know the feeling. Saying goodbye on the first day of kindergarten. Dropping them off at college, and then finally forcing yourself to leave the campus. Praying for them as they move into their first job, or their own home. ...read more

  • Facing The Future With Confidence

    Contributed on May 31, 2018
     | 353 views

    Keys to confidence: God has a plan for the future, God is not limited by time or place, God is faithful and all-powerful. As Jacob leaves Canaan for Egypt, God assures him that his covenant promises will continue there.

    Facing the Future with Confidence—Genesis 45:1-46:34 (I projected an old picture of church people, stiffly sitting in church pews, with suits and ties.) Do any of you remember those old times, or even some of those people? Suppose, by some quirk of time travel, a big screen would appear ...read more

  • When God Messes With You

    Contributed on May 31, 2018
     | 208 views

    Does God mess with us, to help us grow? Joseph did not immediately reveal his identity to his brothers, and they grew through their struggles. Sometimes God refines his people through trials and hard choices.

    WHEN GOD MESSES WITH YOU: Genesis 42-44 I never served in the military, so I never experienced boot camp. From what I hear, boot camp is stressful, by design. The physical and mental demands on new recruits are intended to force them to confront their weaknesses, build their character, and learn ...read more

    Robert Schuller tells of a time early in his ministy when he was experiencing great opposition.

    In Spain in the 11th century, the following hymn, Adon Olam [Lord of the World], was sung in Jewish synagogues: Lord of the world-he reigned alone While yet the universe was naught, When by his will all things were wrought, Then first his sovereign Name was known. And, when the all shall cease ...read more
