Joseph’s faith is remarkable.
He refuses to yield to temptation.
The reason is out of love.
Out of love not to sin against God.
Sag will weaken our spiritual life.
Sag will open our hearts to the evil one.
That’s why Lord Jesus Christ told a man and a woman to stop sinning.
Genesis 39:7-9 (KJV)
And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
