The book of Genesis offers us so many vast topics from which to choose a theme hymn. As we are starting at the very beginning, I would like to give praise to our Creator of heaven and earth in singing
Hymn 320 – Lord of Creation and
Hymn 2 – All Creatures of Our God and King. The stories that follow creation will lean back towards our amazing God and what He has done for each of us in creation.
Our story for this quarter continues with Joseph “now leader of Egypt” just as we say daily
He Leadeth Me – Hymn 537, there is no doubt that Joseph knew of God’s leading. Sabbath afternoon introduces us to the grace for which the brothers were to plead from the leader, just as we do today, and see
Amazing Grace – Hymn 108 and
Marvelous Grace – Hymn 109 all because we ask
Forgive Our Sins As We Forgive – Hymn 299.
The Spirit of the Lord Revealed – Hymn 261 as Pharoah sees “Joseph, who is qualified as ‘discerning and wise’ (Gen 41:39)”. We may then continue to pray
Hover O’er Me, Holy Spirit – Hymn 260.
Reuben thought that Joseph’s shed blood was now required of the brothers (Gen 42:22) but we are excited to know there is
Power in The Blood – Hymn 294 (Monday).
It is noted on Tuesday that “Benjamin has a redeeming effect” just as our Lord Jesus has for us showing
The Wonders of Redeeming Love – Hymn 179.
As the wonderful story of Joseph continues we find “Joseph then declares: ‘God sent me’ (Gen 45:5)”. He surely was
Sent Forth By God’s Blessing – Hymn 407 to help in the saving of the whole family. The carts provided by Joseph for his family to be transported back to Egypt was “enough for him (Jacob) to come alive again” to go forth to Egypt and meet Joseph once again. And, today we know for certain that
Christ is Alive! – Hymn 182.
God’s abundant blessings this quarter as we study through the first book of the Bible which our gracious God has given. May we be faithful and all say “Come, Lord Jesus, come – very soon” so we are able to go to our new home in Heaven, as
We Have This Hope – Hymn 214.
