3-week series: Underdogs: The Greatest Comebacks
Big Idea of the Series: Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, we feel like we’re up against the ropes. We feel like we’ve lost the fight—we feel like we’ve failed. This three-week series focuses on the importance of relying on the power of God to bounce back from difficult—even life altering—situations. By examining Old Testament figures like David, Daniel, and Joseph, this guide details how we too can go from underdogs to overcomers.
Text: Genesis 45:1-11
Topic: Joseph, Trust, Forgiveness
Big Idea of the Message: Joseph felt forsaken and forgotten but rose to the top by trusting God and forgiving those who hurt him.
Application Point: If we trust God, we will forgive those who have hurt us, and God will eventually make right (either on earth or in heaven) what has been wrongly done to us.
