End of an Era, but the Promise Lives On

Scripture says that 'it is appointed unto men once to die' - but how we die, and how we face death, reflects the reality of our faith. The final scenes in Genesis recount the deaths of Jacob and Joseph, and demonstrate their faith in God and His promises, at the end of life.
Scripture: Genesis 49:29-50:26

Faith Learns the Ways of God

Aren't you glad God is patient? We are fickle, and often fail, but He is faithful! Jacob fought with God for much of his life, but God never gave up on him, and in his last days, God won his heart. He showed he had learned to trust God - a life lesson we all need to learn.
Scripture: Genesis 47:28-48:22

Practical Wisdom of a Man of God

While God's plan cannot be thwarted by the sinful actions of men, it is magnified when combined with the wise leadership of godly men. Joseph is 'Exhibit A' of this truth, both with his family, and with the Egyptians. Happy is the man who finds wisdom (Proverbs 3:13)!
Scripture: Genesis 46:31-47:27
