The Anatomy of Reconciliation

September 4, 2022 Speaker: Paul Sanders Series: Beginnings

Topic: The Anatomy of Reconciliation Passage: Genesis 44:1–34

Genesis 44:1-13

 

"Joseph's strategy already brilliantly successful in creating the situations and tensions required, now produces its master stroke.

Like the judgment of Solomon, the sudden threat to Benjamin was a thrust to the heart of his brothers. In a moment, the brothers stood revealed." Derek Kidner

 

Genesis 44:14-34

 

 

Reconciliation begins with humility

 

Reconciliation continues with the acknowledgment of sin against God

 

Reconciliation requires the grace to know that none of us deserve mercy

 

Reconciliation requires a change of heart

 

The Lord does NOT tempt us, but He does test us.

 

 “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” James 1:2-3

 

We will often be tested where we are most vulnerable

 

There can be not reconciliation without repentance

 

Jesus embraced suffering on behalf of us
