The Signature of God in History - Gen 50:15-26
Written by John Tsang

We’ve come to the end of the book of Genesis. It is a grand conclusion to the story of Joseph, Jacob, and the brothers.

 

 

 

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

(Gen 50:20)

 

It is also a fitting summation of the whole book of Genesis and this truth carries us into the stories of the rest of the Old Testament and New Testament. But the one who embodied this in the fullest way, is of course, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus suffered the harmful and evil intentions of humanity on the cross, but God turned it into good, the saving of many lives, for those who put their faith and trust in Him.

A Grandfather's Blessing - Gen 48:1-22

Gen 48-49 is the story of Jacob at the end of his life. In a poetic ending, now the roles are reversed.  Jacob is in the position of giving the blessing, before him are the two sons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim. Joseph wanted the Patriarch to bless the two sons in the order of their birth but as the moment approached, Jacob crossed his arms and blessed the younger over the older. The narrator offered no explanation for this symbolic action, perhaps the silence invites the reader to pause and consider all possible meanings.

When to Do Our Part and When to Let God Do His? - Gen 16:1-16

Throughout the years, I came across a few slogans or mantras used in church that seem inspirational at first but upon further reflection, I’m not sure what it really means. For example:

 

Pray as if everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. (St. Augustine)

 

While we don’t believe in sitting idly by and letting God bring everything into fruition; we also do not believe in running around in a frenzied state trying to make things happen on our own strength and effort. Somewhere in between these polar extremes is where we live in the complexities of everyday life.
