An absent mother, a passive father, and angry bothers are the makeup of the home in which Joseph was raised. Yet, in spite of all this dysfunction, God reached down and saved a boy from the pit, literally.

Picking Wisely Under Pressure

As we saw last week, Joseph was rejected, abandoned, and imprisoned. Joseph arrives in Egypt and is working for a man named Potiphar, God gives us a peek at an extraordinary event in his life.

Joseph has to make a split-second decision, and the choice is not easy. Like most important choices, Joseph’s future is determined by the choice he makes.

Read Genesis 39 to learn more about this choice and how Joseph responded with integrity and to prepare for this message.

From Dreamer to Dream Interpreter

It is interesting that as the story of Joseph progresses, he moves from being a person who has dreams to one who is empowered to interpret the dreams of others.

In this message from Genesis 40:1–40, we will see him interpret the dream of a baker, a cup bearer, and a king. Joseph’s actions in his less than ideal circmstances provides powerful example for us when we find ourselves dealing with the painful issues in our lives.

No Average Joe - Guilt and Grace

Guilt can be a powerful motivator to make positive change. Yet it sometimes used by spiritual leaders wishing to persuade others to act a certain way. The church should not be a place where people burdened with guilt, it needs to be a place where people are taught how to deal with there existing sense of guilt.

This week, as we look at the story of Joseph and his reunion with his brothers, we will see how guilt works and how we can be freed from it.
