Tested by fire 2
One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants were inside. She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!”
But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house. She saw that he had left his cloak in her hands and had ran out of the house
One of the highest temptation a man can experience, is the issue of “sex and money.” We all have such temptations.
I am using the word “Temptation” and not “trial,” because there is pleasure attached to this.
Joseph was a young handsome man that feared God, and Potiphar’s wife took notice of him. One of the unique thing about this temptation is that Joseph could “get away” with it.
Alot of people don’t do certain things because of the fear of being caught and not because they fear God.
But see Joseph a young man running away from sex? It will seem surprising in our present time.
If you follow the story of Joseph you will discover that He became the second in command in Egypt after being jailed for something He didn’t do.
Sex was the fire Joseph got tested with and He passed the test, which led Him above his former master Potiphar.
Fire reveals the quality of metal such as gold. If you are not full of the right stuff you will be consumed by the testing fire.
How prepared are you to stand against trials and temptations?
