This week we will continue in the sermon series on Joseph, from Genesis 39.
Temptation is unavoidable, but the longer we wait to say “no”, the harder it is to do so. Instead of acting decisively against sin, we flirt and see how far we can go without getting into trouble. We stare, we imagine, we fantasize. We say “no” but play with “yes”. This is foolish because the more we play, the weaker we become. Before long we have lost perspective and developed desires that are powerful and destructive. The moment we allow ourselves to debate the merits of wrong behavior, we have given the devil a foothold. This week, let’s find out how to handle temptation.
See you in church!
