JOSEPH SERMON OUTLINES

by Dave Gustavsen

Let me ask you a question-by show of hands-How many of you would say your life has turned out exactly like you planned it when you were a teenager? Just put your hand up-your life now is just what you had planned out. Not many, right? Do you see this? I know it didn't work out for me, because when I was about 14, 15 years old, I had a very clear dream for my life. My hero was...

Sometimes the Bible has a way of wrapping up the life of a person in a single sentence. For intances, when we are told about the life of Barnabas in the New Testament, the Bible says he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith. I wonder what God's word would be concerning us if, in one sentence, he summarized our life. Joseph's life is summarized in the New...

You would think that Joseph's life would have made him bitter and resentful. Consider what it would have been like to be a young man who was… hated by your family, torn away from your father, carried away to an alien culture with no hope of ever returning. Could you blame him if he'd turned his back on everything...

Last week we stopped the story of Joseph where he had been sold by his brothers into slavery. The brothers' hatred of Joseph was so intense that they had at first planned to kill him. They threw him into a cistern (a pit in the ground dug out to hold water) and ate their lunch while discussing just how they would handle the murder. But then some traders came by and the brothers decided...

We all remember the inspiring story of Joseph and his victory over the worst of circumstances...betrayed by his own brothers, and then later exalted by God to a position of honor and power. Joseph was the eleventh son of Jacob. The Bible says in (37:3), Israel (Jacob) loved Joseph...

I want to ask you again to turn with me to Genesis 37. This 37th chapter of Genesis reminds us that God's Word is inexhaustible. Now matter how many times you read it … there is always something new. And just about the time you start thinking that there isn't anything else to discover … God gives you another nugget of truth. That's especially truth for this 37th chapter of...

I am leery of people who are always talking about how God spoke to them in dreams. I read about one fellow who dreamed he ate a 10 pound marshmallow and woke up and his pillow was gone. Today God speaks to His people through His word, not through dreams. Whereas in the New Testament era God speaks through His word, during the Old Testament era God sometimes spoke to people...

When God wants to do a work in your life, He puts a dream in your heart. God has placed dreams deep within all of our hearts. It's just that the difficulties and disappointments of life tend to bury our dreams over time, but that's okay because God has the power to resurrect our dreams and He has the power to do things even...

Springtime on the Plain of Dothan, in the Vale of Esdraelon. To the south the mountains of Samaria, to the north the mountains of Gilboa. Standing on one of the lower ranges of the bordering mountains, we see black dots against the green grass of the plain. These are the black tents of the sons of Jacob who are feeding their...
