"ONE CHARGE" COVERS THE FOLLOWING PURPOSES AND PASSAGES:
- Session 1 – Visions of Greatness (Genesis 37:1-11) | As we begin our journey through Joseph’s life to see the one charge God gave him, we begin with his visions of greatness. While Joseph’s visions were God-given, he treated them as prizes for himself instead of a gift for others. We need to learn from Joseph’s mistakes and treat authority as a responsibility, not merely as a reward.
- Session 2 – Depths of Despair (Genesis 37:12-36) | Joseph’s visions of greatness left him in the depths of despair, as his mistakes and the jealousy of his brothers left him with deep brokenness. However, we see in his story that brokenness is actually a part of what helps us accept the one charge God gives us because brokenness prods us toward surrender. And even more importantly, God works through our brokenness to display His greatness.
- Session 3 – Glimmers of Hope (Genesis 39:21-40:23) | Even in the depths of despair, there were glimmers of hope in Joseph’s story. As Joseph grew in humility and trust while he was in prison, he was learning how to completely surrender to God. His example shows us that we’re not ready to rule until we surrender.
- Session 4 – Seat of Power (Genesis 41:14-44) | When we finally receive the power and responsibility to live out the one charge God gives us, we face a choice. Will we be power-hungry and use our power to oppress and take advantage of others? Or will we use our power to give instead of receive?
