Old Testament Lesson

Genesis 45:1-15

We see here the result of what God was doing.  He was at work in all that was going on in all that was going on in this family.  He was working out for the salvation of His people from the coming famine.  He was making sure that there was a way for His people to survive.  He will make a way.  

No matter how distressing the situation may look that we are going through, God is at work.  He can bring something good out of every situation.  Through all that Joseph went through, God was working.  Even today, God is at work in our lives and will bring some good out of it.  

New Testament Lesson

1 Corinthians 7:32-40

We see here Paul tell us that our primary concern, our primary worry should not be all the things that swirl around us; our primary concern and worry should be God. We should be focused on Him, on His will, on His plan, on what He would have us to do. And if we are focused on Him, we will find that our worries will not be as great. We worry in vain over things that we can't control.  Let us focus instead on God, and what He is doing. And when we cast our focus on that, instead of worry, we will find peace. 

Gospel Lesson

Mark 6:1-13

The text says that Jesus was amazed by their unbelief. There He was in their midst, doing great and wonderful things. Speaking the word, bringing healing, bringing life. But, the people would not believe, their hearts were hard.  Because of their hard hearts, they couldn't see what He was doing in their midsts.  May we pray for softened hearts to see what God is doing.
