How to run away from lust...
1. We must not allow our circumstances tus weaken us
- Joseph overcame adversity in Gen. 39
- do we feel sorry for ourselves our trust Jesus in adversity? Is Jesus enough?
2. We must not rationalize our feelings
- Are we going to obey/submit/give or not?
3. We must not allow the end result to determine the decision
- For the 2nd time in his life Joseph loses his coat but again he keeps his character
- Things will not always go right in your life but God knew what He was doing
- God can have favor even in what seems mean/cruel to us
- Potiphar threw Joseph in jail when he should have killed him.
- Probably bc he knew his character.
- What does your character say about you? Could I resist temptation like this?
Being known as the one who will go to ridiculous measures in order to do what is right and Christ-like
