Celebrating Men

posted Jun 17, 2015, 10:18 AM by Beautiful Zion

     Joseph the Hebrew was sold into captivity by his brothers, where he worked in Potiphar’s house who was Pharaoh’s captain of the guard.  Everyday Joseph would go to work and everyday Potiphar’s wife would make sexual advances towards him.  One day when they were in the house alone, Potiphar’s wife grabbed a hold of him and the brother took off running, to keep from sinning against God, he ran but in fleeing he left his garment behind which would later be used against him and send him to prison for something he did not do.

The moral of this story is yield not to temptation for yielding is sin. Sometimes you may have to run in order to save your salvation.  In today’s society there are men who are running away from everything that is good in their life; and running to a life of crime, drugs, which will lead to jail and in some cases death.  Men we should be chasing after God because we all need a little more Jesus. Jesus is our source of strength; with Him all things are possible.  Paul says it like this, “Finally my brother, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”.  In Christ Jesus we have the power to be more than conquerors.  If you have to run; run to Jesus with all your burdens, cares, and leave them at the altar.  The Bible reminds us in the story of Joseph that the Lord was with him; do not give up when hope seems lost, THE LORD IS WITH YOU.
