Optioneel: Downloaden ‘Jozef part 1' video

Joseph was a part of a family. Even though Joseph grew up in a messed-up family, he did not allow his unusual and dysfunctional family background to get in the way of serving God. He refused to use his family history as an excuse.

We are also part of an earthly family as well as a Christian Church family. We are the brothers and sisters of Jesus The Church is a family bound together by love for God, their Heavenly Father, and for one another.

One day Jesus was together with his disciples in a house. When Jesus' mother and brothers arrived at the house, they sent someone inside to look for him. They told Jesus, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.” Jesus looked around at the people seated around him and answered, "Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother & sister & mother.”

Did Jesus love his real mother and brothers? Of course he did, but he also realized that he had another family. It was a family made up of those who loved his Heavenly Father and did his will.

You and I love our families, but we also have a wonderful family of faith made up of brothers and sisters who love God and love one another. It is wonderful to be a part of "The Family of God."

Joseph was loved by his earthly father, he gave him a very special present, can you remember what that was?

But Joseph was also very important to God who loved him and you will learn later in this teaching God never left him even in Joseph’s times of difficulties. God knew Joseph before he was even born and He had a great plan for Joseph just like He has for you.

Jeremia 1:5a
"Nog voordat Ik je maakte in de buik van je moeder, kende Ik je al. Al voordat je werd geboren, gaf Ik jou je taak.

Jeremia 29:11
“ Want Ik weet wat mijn plannen voor jullie zijn, zegt de Heer. Ik heb mooie plannen voor jullie. Plannen vol vrede, niet vol ellende. Want Ik heb een hoopvolle toekomst voor jullie.”

Joseph's father loved him more than his brothers. Jesus is the beloved son and preferred one of the Father.
