Genesis 45:25-28- 25 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father, 26 And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not. 27 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived: 28 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.
In the Old Testament, we see many types of Christ; Joseph is one of them. You would be hard pressed to find anything negative written about Joseph. After the brothers of Joseph, sell him into slavery, his father, Jacob, is under the impression that he had died. When Jacob gets word of this, his spirit is revived! He then gets up, to go see the son.
Do you believe Christ is alive? Does getting reminded of this revive your spirit? If your convinced that you serve a risen Savior this morning, go and see him before ye die. Amen.
