A word from Art
This week: Freedom in Humility
Scripture: Matthew 4:5-7

John captures the categories of sin in 1 John 2:16 when he writes, "For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world." Jesus was tempted by all three of these kinds of sin. This Sunday, we will watch as Jesus stares the Pride of Life in the face and walks away free from sin simply by leaning into humility. What we will discover is that humbling ourselves before the Lord leads to freedom from sin.

Joseph forgives his brothers
Worship Theme: We can honor God by forgiving others.
Weaving Faith into Life: Children will worship God for His forgiveness and forgive others in the same way.
Joseph's interpretation of Pharaoh’s dreams was correct, and the seven years of abundance in Egypt were followed by seven years of famine. Jacob’s question in Genesis 42:1 demonstrates the desperation of his family’s situation. Apparently all other options had been exhausted. Without food from Egypt, Jacob and his family would starve so 10 sons went to Egypt. However, Benjamin, the youngest, stayed home. With Joseph gone, Benjamin was the only tie Jacob still had to his beloved Rachel, who had died at Benjamin’s birth (Genesis 35:16-18). Jacob didn’t want to risk losing Benjamin, too.
Forgiveness is one of the hardest things that God asks us to do throughout our lifetimes; however, He doesn’t ask us to do it without His help. We must forgive as He forgives us. We should always keep in mind the scripture in Genesis 50:20,
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
