July 11, 2010 – Morning Worship

Monday Genesis 42
What is God teaching Joseph’s brothers here? Jacob? Joseph?  How do we learn with them?

Tuesday Genesis 42:1-17; Job 21
How do you think Joseph’s brothers understand what’s going on?  Like Job, they see the wicked (Egypt) prospering, and God’s people (Jacob’s family) suffering – but what’s really going on?

Wednesday Genesis 42:18-28; Psalm 88
When it seems like everything is going wrong and there is no hope, is that true?  What’s missing in this analysis?  How should that change the way we relate to circumstances, others, God?

Thursday Genesis 42:29-38; Luke 23
Jacob sees his circumstances and despairs.  How does Jesus face his suffering and death?  Why is that so important for Jacob and us?

Friday Genesis 42:8; Matthew 16:13-20; 25:31-46
What problems come with mistaken identity and not knowing who is standing before us?  What aid does God give us in knowing and recognizing him?

Saturday Genesis 42
How is God’s law evident in this passage?  How is his grace evident in this passage?  How do we apply both to ourselves as his people?
