Genesis 39, When Joseph arrived in Egypt as a captive, he was purchased by Potiphar, the captain of the king’s bodyguard and his chief executioner. The Lord blessed Joseph so that everything he did succeeded. One day, Potiphar’s wife began making eyes at Joseph and suggested that he come and sleep with her. Joseph refused and said to her, "How can I do such a wicked thing as this? It would be a great sin against God.” Then one day, Potiphar's wife came and grabbed him by the sleeve demanding, “Sleep with me.” He tore himself away, but as he did, his jacket slipped off and she was left holding it as he fled from the house. Then she began screaming; and when the other men around the place came running in to see what had happened, she cried. “My husband had to bring in this Hebrew slave to insult us!” she sobbed. “He tried to rape me, but when I screamed, he ran, and forgot to take his jacket.” She kept the jacket and when her husband came home that night, she told him her story. He threw Joseph into prison, where the king’s prisoners were kept in chains. But the Lord was with Joseph. God granted him favor with the chief jailer. In fact, the jailer soon handed over the entire prison administration to Joseph, so that all the other prisoners were responsible to him. The Lord was with him so that everything ran smoothly and well. FRIENDS, TEMPTATIONS COME TO ALL BUT JOSEPH'S LOVE FOR GOD OVERCAME THE TEMPTATION AND SIN. 1 Corinthians 10:13 But remember wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different. Many others have faced exactly the same problems before you. And no temptation is irresistible. You can trust God to keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it, for he has promised this and will do what he says. He will show you how to escape temptation’s power so that you can bear up patiently against it.
