The Story – Joseph
Today we beginning a new chapter that God is writing. As we have said before, we are reading this book The Story. The Story continues to surprise us, at the kinds of people he chooses to invite to be a part of his work of healing and restoration. Last week, we met a man named Abraham, who was a 75 year old idol worshiping pagan with a barren wife. And God promised that He would give Abraham a new land (Canaan-the crossroads of the ancient world), He would make his decedents into a great nation, and through His family ALL the people’s on earth would be blessed.
With that in mind, Joseph’s story is one of the most compelling in all the Bible. It spans 13 chapters and closes out the book of Genesis. You will want to know it, not so learn another story from the bible. . But because is so often the case, you’re going to find your story in the story of Joseph.
