One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it. The seven year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked…
Joseph: God Intended It For Good
Dan Kroon • Willetton Christian Church • Sermon • • 17 views • 33:45
As we come to the end of our series on Joseph, we see one more time how the story points us, in many, many ways, to God’s bigger story of salvation. In the legacy of Jacob, the prophecy for Judah, the example of Joseph and the fulfilment of Jesus – we are given an incredible view of God’s sovereign plan. He meant it, used it, planned it, purposed it, designed it, resolved it and intended it for good. What good? For “the saving of many lives.” For salvation, deliverance and redemption. That’s what God intends for us. That’s what God will work through us. That’s what God has purposed us for. That’s what God will achieve in us. Throughout this series we have been stretching our vision (our view, our faith) to gain a bigger picture of God. So, in this conclusion, let’s stretch it to maximum capacity and see our lives completely wrapped up in God’s eternity-spanning story.

Turn to 1 Peter 1 There seems to be a perception about God and the Church in our society - that God and the Church exist primarily to fix problems. “If God’s is so powerful, and He can fix all my problems, then He should fix all my problems and the problems of the world” - or so goes the idea. Of course…
Our topic this week in the Believe series is prayer. The key Idea is “I pray to God to know him, to find direction for my life and to lay my requests before him.” If you’re reading the Believe book, you would have found passages of Scripture that relate to each of those aspects of prayer – knowing God,…
