The Rev. William Taylor: “God deals with people like you and me” (Genesis 38)

March 11, 2015

Here is another of the “Sermon Bites” from St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in London.  In this one, the Rev. William Taylor talks about Genesis 38, and the notes say this:

One of the surprising and ultimately comforting aspects of the Bible is its candour concerning human nature. Human beings are wicked; yet God chooses to work with them and through them and even save them.

In his sermon Working with Terrible Raw Material from the current series on the life of Joseph, William Taylor draws out painfully from Genesis 38 the wickedness of Joseph’s brother, Judah. This makes all the more poignant and wonderful Joseph’s eventual reconciliation with his brothers as God works through the brothers’ evil actions to bring about the saving of many lives.

God deals with People like You and Me is taken from the sermon Working with Terrible Raw Material, which can be found in our media library.
