November 26, 2023 • Pastor Chris Casoni • Genesis 47—50
As we finish the story of Joseph, we see how God is faithful, how He empowers faithfulness, and how His faithfulness provides great blessing. Whether or not we understand our circumstances, everything that comes to us in this life is meant for our ultimate good.

Reconciliation is a work of God for His glory and our benefit, and it can never be achieved without transformation. As we continue the story of Joseph, we'll see how Joseph's family is an example of the peace brought by our reconciliation with God.
Life of Joseph - Genesis 42-44
November 12, 2023 • Pastor Chris Casoni • Genesis 42—44
The consequences of sin can weigh us down or pave the way for repentance and forgiveness, leading to true transformation. Here we'll see how Joseph's brothers desperately needed the transforming power of grace (though they did not know it), which led to reconciliation.
Life of Joseph - Genesis 41
October 29, 2023 • Pastor Chris Casoni • Genesis 41
Joseph's high view of God caused him to understand that God is sovereign over all rulers, and so he remained faithful to God despite worldly influence. Even through the hard times, Joseph moved forward with his life embracing the lessons and gift of suffering, all to the glory of God alone.
Life of Joseph - Genesis 40
October 22, 2023 • Pastor Chris Casoni • Genesis 40
A high view of God will strengthen our spiritual reflexes amidst trials and tribulation. Joseph knew that God has perfect timing, that God is worthy to be trusted, and that God's process is perfect, and this high view of God gave Joseph confidence to turn to God as his natural response.
Life of Joseph - Genesis 39
October 15, 2023 • Pastor Chris Casoni • Genesis 39
In a fallen world, sin and injustice are inevitable, and none of us are exempt from being sinned against. However, knowing that God is with us gives reason and support to flee temptation and walk in righteousness. As we see in Joseph's life, doing the right thing may still lead you to experience burdens or suffering, but we can do the right thing because God is with us.
