The Glorious Grace of the Providence of God

Genesis 48:1-50:26              August 25, 2013            Link for audio/video/document 

 Joseph came to know the grace of God through the suffering he endured throughout his life. But his was not a result of his struggle with sin, but a result of God’s providence. Joseph saw that God’s hand was behind every event in his life, and he right where God has always planned for him to be. While the attitudes and actions of Joseph’s brothers were done with evil intent, the result was intended by God for the good of his family and for the good Egypt – and for the glory of God in fulfilling the promise of God’s blessing to send a saviour into the world through Abraham’s descendants to restore fallen, sinful humanity back to God.
