Welcome to Grace Community Church
Welcome back to our study of the life of Joseph. I’m hoping that this account has been a blessing and an encouragement to you. One key thing we ought to take away from this study is the parallel between Joseph and our Lord Jesus. As the story unfolds, we see time and time and again how Joseph’s life mirrors that of Christ. Here we are in the beginning of Chapter 40; Joseph has been accused of a crime he didn’t commit and lands in prison. Yet we’ll see that even then he thrives. In today’s sermon, Pastor Julio will zero in on the importance of having consistency in our spiritual walk- the fruits of steadfastness.
The Passage: Genesis 40:1-5
The Cupbearer and the Baker
40 Some time later, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their master, the king of Egypt. 2 Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker, 3 and put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the same prison where Joseph was confined. 4 The captain of the guard assigned them to Joseph,and he attended them.
After they had been in custody for some time, 5 each of the two men—the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were being held in prison—had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own.
