Hmmm, that doesn't sound right. But today we're learning about Joseph and his multicolored coat. Let's see how that might apply to us.
There are so many great events in scripture right from the very start. But in this series we're going to begin with Joseph. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that it is the greatest story ever told and in a sense that's exactly right. It is the inflection point where Israel truly begins its growth as the nation which brings us our Savior, the redeemer of all mankind. Today we're beginning that journey over the next several weeks.
This is not algebra, but if it were it would be more accurate to say the power of 2 raised to infinity, because that's exactly what's happening when we seek the Source that holds unlimited power and authority. Jesus said where two or more are gathered together in prayer that He is in their midst.
Today we're not getting into the content of our prayer, whether we're asking for the right things or whether our prayers get answered when and how we want them. The point is that God guarantees He is listening when two bind together to address Him. That is incredible and we've got to start getting that instilled deeply into our corporate lives as followers of Jesus.
In most every commentary you read regarding the mother of James and John, the sons of Zebedee the fisherman, they beat up on both her and her sons to a certain degree. There's more emphasis on the presumption of both mother and sons in their request. So much so that what gets missed, run over if you will, is her love of Jesus, quick submission in worship of Him, and most assuredly her willingness to pray big.
