50 Days of Purity - A Life of Sexual Purity

Today's message came from Genesis 39, looking at the life and integrity of Joseph. In the midst of temptation, his desire was clearly more for God than for his flesh. He knew that all sin was ultimately a sin against God ... and that all sin was done in the presence of God.

God, give us the courage and strength to run away from places that tempt us ... to refuse to stay on that path ... to pray bold offensive prayers against the enemy ... and to have the humility and wisdom to recruit accountability partners as we strive to live a life of purity before you. And when we fall, may we crawl always back to the cross again and again and again ... trusting and believing that You will forgive and restore us again.

"How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?"
Genesis 39:9c
