The Accusation

The Accusation

Today, we begin a new sermon series, “Betrayed Again,” as we follow Joseph into slavery in Egypt.  When we contrast his conduct in Potiphar’s house with Judah’s sin with Tamar, we see a great playbook on how to flee temptation. Genesis 39:1-23 The Accusation by Greg...

The Fornicator

The Fornicator

As we finish this four-week series, we turn our attention from Joseph for a moment – a moment in which we realize that Jacob’s sons are steeped in wickedness.  It is a sobering reminder that the heart of a child is a fragile thing . . . and the world, the flesh, and...
The Betrayer

The Betrayer

In this week’s message, we see the sibling rivalry between Joseph and his brothers erupt into a murderous plot that eventually settles into enslavement.  Joseph’s journey into exile and imprisonment begins – and yet he never doubts God’s goodness.  His life is such a...
The Dreamer

The Dreamer

We see the first real introduction of Jacob’s son, Joseph, in this message.  Almost 25 percent of the book of Genesis pertains to Joseph – perhaps because his life so remarkably foreshadows the life and ministry of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Genesis 37:1-11 The Dreamer...
The Black Sheep

The Black Sheep

It’s time to look at the life and legacy of Jacob’s estranged brother, Esau.  He is certainly much more than a footnote in the book of Genesis.  His impact has long been felt among the Middle East and helped shape the future, both good and bad, of the nation of...

Jacob’s Sorrows

Jacob’s Sorrows

Today, as we conclude our “Coming Home” sermon series in Genesis, the difficulties of life and the inevitable for all of us: death.  But he also begins to reap in his own family and offspring what his past sexual sin has sown. Genesis: 31-35 Jacob's Sorrow by...
Jacob’s Revival

Jacob’s Revival

Today, as we continue our “Coming Home” sermon series in Genesis, we finally see Jacob fully obey God’s call for him to return to his ancestral home and to worship Jehovah God as his father, Isaac, and grandfather, Abraham, had. Genesis 35:1-15 Jacob's Revival by...
