    A life of forgiveness is a life of peace! I admire Joseph so much for his heart of forgiveness towards everyone that betrayed or forgot him. How can we teach people to forgive?

    Esther, Paul, Peter, and Sampson – pretty awesome dudes! Follow-up question: Reflect back to your life one, two, or five years ago – what is your transformation story? How has Christ transformed you? In what specific areas?

    Great thoughts everyone! So how does God point our weaknesses? Be specific pretty please?

    This seems to be a common theme in Genesis – Do we trust God enough with HIs promises to allow Him to make them happen. Or…do we try to manipulate people and circumstances so we have control of HOW God’s promises come true.

    Great thoughts Alex! So follow-up question – How does God do this? How does God show us our weaknesses?

    Wow! I never really thought of that – “We see that Isaac repeated the behavior, but did he know the story? I wonder if Abraham had told him and urged him not to make the same mistake‚Ķ.”

    I 100% agree with that Matt. These are great insights coming from someone that would consider themselves a follower of Jesus. But for someone that does not consider themselves a “Christian” or a “believer” how do we communicate the Gospel to them? What did Jesus say to people? Did he tell them they were sinners and they needed to say a prayer?

    Good stuff Ben! Many people believe that God exists. But few submit their lives to Him and trust Him through obedience. It is maddening to think that we, who have so little control and power, want to control things so often instead of trusting a God who has unlimited control and power.

    Most current evangelism models begins with emphasizing the sins of the person we are talking to. But if Jesus, our high priest, has already died once…for all sins, then what really keeps someone from having a relationship with God and entering into the new life He desires for them to experience?

    Obedience & Love – These seem to be the two themes I am picking up from your responses. Awesome!

    Follow-up Question: What are the similarities between Jesus & Isaac in these sacrificial stories?

    Wow! Great insights guys! Yes…the uniqueness of Jesus being in the “order of Melchizedek” is a wonderful truth for us.

    Follow-up question: Because Jesus “has already sacrificed for us and will never have to again”, how does this impact the way we talk to people about their sin, separation from God, etc.?

    We have had many conversations about this Chuck. I look forward to the day when we celebrate the woman God brings into your life? Question – when you say “He will ever send me a wife” – what do you envision that looks like?
