Week 4: God’s Plan Brings Redemption
God is writing His story. We get to participate in His story as we live our lives. God’s story is about buying back (redeeming) a broken and fallen world. In the midst of our pain, trials, frustrations, God is actively pursuing our good and His glory. He always has a purpose. Sometimes we may not see it on this side of eternity, but that does not mean He is not working. Joseph saved an entire nation during a famine, but God also redeemed an entire family through Joseph’s pain. In redeeming Jacob’s family, God set the stage for the nation of Israel to be born and not only that, God used that family line to bring His Messiah, Jesus, into the world.
