June 18 – Learn To Overcome Temptation

Daily Bible Life

Potiphar’s wife invited Joseph to commit a sin with her, but he refused. The young man rejected her offer and stated that he would prefer not to sin against God. Joseph said to Potiphar’s wife, “… Look, my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he has committed all that he has to my hand. There is no one greater in this house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:8).

 

Lesson:

Anyone who considers himself a true Christian ought to live a disciplined life. Such a person must be firm in rejecting sin and standing upright for God! He/she must be able to decipher what decisions are good or bad. Jehovah is ever willing to see his children, maintaining righteousness even in times of temptations. He wants us to make him proud by refusing to fall for any temptation that Satan may bring our way.

A true child of God must be able to affirmatively say “yes” or “no” to any situation in order to honor God. Meanwhile, Christians must be careful not to confuse outward behavior, or an external appearance as a true reflection of holiness. True holiness comes from within, which eventually influences our outward behavior and appearance. Therefore, it is imperative that a child of God considers it important to do the will of God both in open and in secret places. Jehovah, who sees all things will reward whoever is honest in his/her dealings.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me the strength to say no to sin and say yes to righteousness. Empower me through your Holy Spirit to live a sanctified life. Help me to abstain from sin and comply with your laws. Please help me to uphold the truth of your words, so that I can be worthy of your benefits in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
