"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Genesis 40:1-23
He restored the chief cup-bearer to his position, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand. But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them. Yet the chief cup-bearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.

While there is a very real psychological trauma that happens when being forgotten, there is equally a theological hope that comes when we find ourselves left alone. As much as it hurts, God refuses waste this emptiness but rather fills it with himself. This paradox is one of the most beautiful attributes of Christianity. Joseph had done a kindness and then was forgotten. We have a lot to learn about being alone and how to help those who are abandoned by the world, their families, and their church. Join us as we worship a God who will never forget his deep love for us.
