A Young Man, A Great Temptation, And A Blessed Victory

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Do you have a right view of sin, and more importantly, do you have a right view of God and how He views sin?

Many people today rationalize away their sin. Some play word games. It’s not an “adulterous relationship,” it’s an “affair.” It’s not “sin,” it’s “my weakness.” Others rationalize sin by saying “everyone else is doing it.” And still others believe they can control the consequences of their sin.

However, in the Old Testament, Joseph knew what sin was — great wickedness. And he knew better than to grieve God when faced with a powerful temptation—one he could have easily rationalized due to his position of power.

This message takes us through the ups and downs of Joseph’s life and the temptation presented to him. And from his story we can learn how we must respond as he did—no matter the cost—because at the end of the day, if we don’t, we’ll be grieving the One who has redeemed us.
