Sermon Series: Genesis
October 6, 2019
DEEP SHEET: Sermon Study Questions
1. How have you seen God providentially connect you to other people in order to accomplish his purposes? Discuss any adverse circumstances that you had to endure in order to get to that point.
2. Discuss the theme of humiliation before exaltation or the cross before the crown. How do we often lose sight of this in the Christian life?
3. Where do we see Joseph’s faith in this narrative? How does it convict us and drive us to Christ?
4. Where have we seen God’s “kindness” and “remembering” in Genesis so far? How do these characteristics of God give us courage to face any circumstance?
5. How does this narrative help us to wait on the Lord?
