Suffering & Forgiveness in the Life of Joseph | SWO23
Rob Conti | SWO23 Thursday Morning
Suffering precedes glory.
Because of Joseph’s faithfulness, he’s made governor of Egypt. This role allows him to save his brothers and father during the famine. Despite their evil towards him, Joseph forgave them for what they’d done to him.
The Lord was with Joseph, and God uses him to point us to Christ. Jesus’s suffering was so much greater than Joseph’s. He suffered greater than anyone so he could offer salvation to everyone.
Believer, don’t hold onto your sin at the cost of missing salvation. Look to Joseph’s life as an example of suffering well and forgiving like Christ suffered and forgives us.
