"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 41:1-57
This proposal pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has shown you all this, there is none so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command. Only as regards the throne will I be greater than you.”

What are we, if not a people exalted by a God had no business exalting us. It is often easy to talk about our cisterns and our prisons while forgetting just how far God has brought us. The story of Joseph being lifted up by Pharaoh reminds us that there are times of feasting and there are times of famine and yet obedience to the word of God is possible in the land of affliction. Join us as we look to Christ who through his humiliation offers us the greatest of all gifts.
