Theme: Detour: Finding Purpose When Life Doesn’t Make Sense

A Study of the Life of Joseph

What if the detour is the only way to the destination? For Joseph, the “end” of his dreams was really just the beginning. Joseph’s detour really wasn’t a detour after all. It was God’s sovereign plan—the purpose between the lines of the story. There are many parallels between his life and the ministry of Jesus, and therefore between his life and ours as followers of Jesus. As with Joseph and Jesus, our stories become a part of God’s even greater story—the story not only of a tragic fall but also of a stunning redemption. And regardless of the pain, the challenges, and the adversity we go through, the glory of our story will be worth it in the end.
