Back to series

Hey everyone and welcome to Refinery Life Church.

We are in a continual process of being changed into the image of Jesus Christ.

This month we are discussing Jacob’s son Joseph, I have titled this series “Lessons from Joseph.”

Today’s message is titled To Err Is Human, To Forgive Is Divine.

One more story remains in this series from the life of Joseph.

Events moved rapidly after the cupbearer finally told Pharaoh about the prisoner who had such wonderful ability because of his God.

Pharaoh called on Joseph to interpret his dream.

Soon the Hebrew boy was made prime minister of the land, second only to the king himself.

Later his brothers came to Egypt to but grain during the famine.

For a short time, Joseph played cat and mouse with them, but at last he revealed himself to them.

One of the noblest statements in God’s Word is Joseph’s address to his brothers.

Not only did he forgive them for what they had done, but he went so far as to say that God was actually using them in His plan when they sold him as a slave.

Of course, Joseph’s forgiveness did not lessen their guilt, but it may have diminished their fears of his possible revenge.

This evening, let’s look at some truths from this story.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings
