Trust - A Study in Genesis
Trusting God With Other People's Sins
December 13, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we finish our series in Joseph and we watch Joseph display one of the most meaningful moments of forgiveness in all of scripture. Joseph will teach us that part of trusting God means forgiving people who sin against us. If you want to read ahead read Genesis 44, 45, and 50 and be prayerfully considering who you need to be forgiving.
Trusting God When Things are Fine
December 6, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
So far, Joseph has displayed relentless trust for God in times of great adversity – but can he trust God in times of prosperity? This week Joseph finally catches a break and it’s a big one. Here we examine the discipline it takes to maintain trust in God in an environment that is even more hostile toward faith than adversity – the times of prosperity. If you would like to read ahead we will be focusing primarily on Genesis 41.
Trusting God during the Long Night
November 29, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This is the Sunday after Thanksgiving! And we are going to spend the Sunday after Thanksgiving with Joseph in prison where he has been serving for years with no end in sight for a crime that he did not commit. The challenge this week is this, “trusting God means being thankful, even when He allows you to suffer.” If you want to read ahead we will be covering Genesis 29:19-23, 40, 41:1. Happy Thanksgiving!
Trusting God in an Unfair Situation
November 22, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This will be our second week with Joseph in the book of Genesis. We will be reading through Genesis 39 and talking about the difficult task of trusting God in unfair situations. Read through this chapter and consider unfair situations you’ve found yourself in, maybe you’re in one right now. What do you think God wants you to do in these types of situations? What did Joseph do?
Trusting God in a Dysfunctional Family
November 15, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This Sunday we begin a new series out of Genesis called “Trust”. In it, we will examine the very difficult life of Joseph. He dealt with betrayal from his family, enslavement in a foreign land, the false accusation by an employer’s wife, and wrongful imprisonment. He was forgotten by the world for years and during that time he had no idea what God was doing. And yet, through it all, he trusted God relentlessly. I cannot think of a better topic for today. This Sunday we will be examining Genesis 37 and the trusting God in a dysfunctional family.
