Who are these guys? Who are these girls? Who are the people that formed the word of God? Because, folks, I’ll guarantee you something. If you attend the next couple of weeks— now I’m talking to myself, and, hopefully, I’ll be in attendance—as we study these major players, they will change our lives for the better. Because the Bible is a straightforward book. And that’s something I can identify with. Not only does it show someone’s strengths, but it also exposes their weaknesses-something that I can identify with and you can identify with.
The Bible does not try to broad brush or candy coat someone’s life. It’s straightforward facts. Today, we’re going to look at the life of a man whose name is Joseph. Joseph. So, take your Bible, if you have the Bible, and turn to the book of Genesis. If you don’t have a Bible, look next to the person on your right or left. Some of you singles, you can meet Mr. or Mrs. Right sharing the Bible. You never know. That’s how I met my wife.
Genesis 37. Genesis 37. The first book of the Bible. And in his account of Joseph, we’re going to look at some major players very quickly. We’re going to set the stage. Now, when you come to church, if you can, please bring the program-and that’s the word of God. If you see the Cowboys play, or the Mavericks, or the Rangers, it’s good to have a program. And how many times I’ve been to an athletic contest and I said, “Who made that tackle? 74. What’s his name? Who got that base hit?” If I have a program, I can follow along. So, the Bible is the program.© Copyright admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Jr
