God speaks when his Word is proclaimed. When we sit under the preaching of God’s Word, we are not merely learning new information; we are encountering the living God. We usually work through books of the Bible systematically. Every week, we expound and apply a passage of the Bible to show Christ.
God Is With Us
In Genesis 39, we see the beginning of Joseph's life in Egypt. Though it is important for us to flee from temptation, but the main point of this story is to emphasize how the LORD God was with Joseph in every high and stormy gale. God's presence is seen climactically in Jesus Christ, who is Immanuel ('God with us'), and He promises to be with us till the end of the age.
Meant for Good
The life of Joseph is a story of grand dreams, family dysfunction, sibling rivalry, political intrigue, reversals of fortune, and family reconciliation. Through the twist and turns in this story, we see a sovereign God accomplishing his good purposes even through human evils. We see a story of redemption through suffering. And we will see how all this points forward to God’s sovereign and good plan to redeem the world through the suffering of the true and greater Joseph, Jesus Christ.
