Discussion for Genesis 42

  • A disciple
    I know that the Lord Jesus has forgiven me my sins, and made me clean through His word. Yet I am deeply mortified and grieved when I think of about how badly I polluted myself in sins. I think this is a good sign of true awakening, when there's a real repentance and conversion. When the day comes that God wipes away all tears from off all our faces, then will we be made to forget the pat for ever.

    Verse 38: We can see that the loss of Joseph had long term effects on Jacob's feelings. Imagine those who have lost a child today. Feelings of distress and even depression can last for years.
  • A disciple
    As Joseph was given the day when his brothers had to face him again for their sins against him, and he knew how to deal wisely with them; so will the Lord be faithful to bring all those who have wronged us to our feet, to show them how much He has loved us, and honors those who are good and holy before Him. God has to speak roughly to the ones who need to repent, when they are hiding their sins.
