Joseph and the Old Cigarette Machine
Series: Joseph's Journey
Pastor Rob Wilson
My preaching practice in the summer months is to choose a book or theme from the Hebrew Scriptures (often called the Old Testament) for us to focus on. I do this because too often Christian preachers, including myself, can ignore the Old Testament and in doing so avoid acknowledging our Jewish roots. But we can't understand the New Testament if we don't understand the Old Testament. This summer our sermons will have us focus on one particular figure we meet in the book of Genesis: Joseph. The series is called the "Joseph Journey" and today we will be introduced to Joseph through a few short verses found in Genesis 37:1-4. Our first message is called "The Old Cigarette Machine" and in addition to laying the foundation for our entire summer series, today's message will invite you to apply some Godly truths to your life. The following discussion questions can be used for your own spiritual reflection throughout the week or to discuss with a trusted spiritual friend or group. 

1. What are some of the toxic family traits that Joseph is raised with in his family of origin? 

2. Draw out a picture of your family of origin, rate each of the relationships within that system, and then write down what was healthy in your family of origin and what was dysfunctional.

3. Pastor Rob asserts that God often takes people who come from toxic backgrounds and transforms their lives into beautiful pieces of art (like the "Art-O-Mat" machines). How is God calling you into this transformation process right now and what are several things you can do to help in that transformation this week, month, and year.
