Welcome to Grace Community Church we will be looking at Genesis 42:3-14 today
Confronting Sin has become a foreign idea to many of us. We tend to quickly bypass this step under the guise of pouring out grace. But Scripture tells us in Acts 11:18 “ When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, “Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life. Repentance is a key element of the grace of God. In today’s sermon Pastor Julio is going to be exploring Genesis 42:3-14-Joseph under the prompting of the Holy Spirit initiates the process of confronting his brothers about their past sins.
PS: I will also invite you to like and share the sermon on Youtube because it helps in propagating it to other people around world.
The Service 10.10.2021: Genesis 42:3-14
3 So ten of Joseph’s brothers went down to buy grain in Egypt. 4 But Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph’s brother, with his brothers, for he feared that harm might happen to him. 5 Thus the sons of Israel came to buy among the others who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan.
6 Now Joseph was governor over the land. He was the one who sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph’s brothers came and bowed themselves before him with their faces to the ground. 7 Joseph saw his brothers and recognized them, but he treated them like strangers and spoke roughly to them. “Where do you come from?” he said. They said, “From the land of Canaan, to buy food.” 8 And Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him. 9 And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamed of them. And he said to them, “You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land.” 10 They said to him, “No, my lord, your servants have come to buy food. 11 We are all sons of one man. We are honest men. Your servants have never been spies.”
12 He said to them, “No, it is the nakedness of the land that you have come to see.” 13 And they said, “We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan, and behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is no more.” 14 But Joseph said to them, “It is as I said to you. You are spies.
