Not Your Average Joe - Blessing Leads to Legacy

God wins. Evil loses.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • What has been your biggest take away from this study of Joseph’s story? Why?

Read: Genesis 45:16-21, 46:1-7, 50:2-6, 15-20, Romans 8:28

  • Do Genesis 50:20 and Romans 8:28 say everything that happens is good? Why or why not?

  • Have you experienced bad things in your past that you have now been able to see the good in them? Or, if you’re not able to, perhaps you can think of something another person has gone through who has then been able to help you as a result.

  • Do you believe that, in the end, God wins and evil loses? Why can it be hard to believe God wins or easy to think evil wins?

  • If God is all powerful and all good, how can there be evil in the world?

  • When you see evil in the world, how do you address it (ignore, pray, act, etc.)? Do you look for opportunities where good can come from it?

  • How have you used your past hardships to help others? How can you look for these types of opportunities going forward?

Prayer: Pray that you are able to see God using bad situations and turning them to good.
