One Charge: Lessons In Kingdom From The Life Of Joseph


One Charge: is a four-session sermon series that will explore four separate parts of the life of Joseph. This series will challenge your students’ perspectives on power, authority, and their responsibilities in the Kingdom of God. They will learn that God has much more planned for their lives than they think and will be better equipped to handle the weight of God-given authority.

God doesn’t just save us; He also sends us out to rule on His behalf. This is our one charge. The same God who lives in close relationship with us through covenant relationship also calls us to the responsibility of representing Him by exercising the Kingdom authority and power which He gives us. We are charged to be ambassadors and emissaries who represent our King in the world. And as we live out this one charge by being in charge thanks to God’s authority and power, we will see God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven.

    • 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?
