PLANTED . . . On Earth for a Purpose
Joseph: Planted and Influential
Psalm 1 Tree – Purpose, Transformation, Influence
Joseph is introduced in Genesis 30 and becomes the dominant personality of Genesis 37-50.
TEXT: Genesis 41:41-57
Joseph’s journey into a person of influence included life-shaping experiences that were both positive and negative.
Influence: the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others.
Purpose-Transformation-Influence: In reality, these all intersect and overlap in our lives as followers of Jesus.
God is interested in the kind of people we are becoming – as much as He is interested in how influential we are.
