The Deceit of Man and the Favor of God

Genesis 37:1-39:23              June 21, 2013           Link for audio/video/document

Even though Joseph was favored by his father Jacob and he was disfavored by his brothers – he came to know the favor of God’s presence in the midst of his struggles and sufferings with the deceit of fallen, human sin. Sin, and the deceitfulness of sin, is a given for all of us. That being said, suffering is then inevitable. It is our fallen, human condition. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus entered our suffering and died for our suffering on a cross, so our souls might be healed with God, when we embrace Jesus as our Lord and Savior!
