God continues to be actively involved in every aspect of Joseph's life, from the successful years to the devastating turn that takes him to prison. Joseph is giving us an ideal demonstration of what it looks like to be comforted by the sovereign presence of God. We likewise can trust that God is good and, at the same time, absolutely in control of all creation.

The Life of Joseph is one that points us back to the reality of our lives. One of the undeniable truths we see in life is that we face many tests. We face daily tests of choosing what is right and what is wrong. Do we give in to our temptations or overcome to live in integrity. Today we look at the cost of integrity and the reward of unity it offers us all.

In the eleven years Joseph serves in Potiphar's house, he experiences success in spectacular ways. Alongside God's sovereign presence, Joseph works in a way that brings God's blessing to those around him. In our lives today, we discover God is more interested in our character than any possessions we gain through our work.

The story of Joseph is one we can all relate to, but not for the reasons we like to think. The story of Joseph reminds us of the reality of evil that we all face, the reality of evil that dwells within us. Joseph’s brothers commit evil against their brother Joseph. What we learn through their actions is that this evil is something we all share in common, but what is the reality of evil within us and how can we experience a greater reality?

At the beginning of Joseph's life story, we see the importance of a strong character that must align with Joseph's unique and undeniable gifts. He is thrust into an incredible journey due to his father's favoritism and his brothers' jealousy, yet despite these obstacles, his strong gift of faithfulness shines through.

In this sermon we look at why we are called to devote ourselves to prayer and how we can do so regularly.
