THE MIND OF CHRIST, SHINING IN THE WORLD  3

KEY SCRIPTURE: Gen 39:12 KJV” And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.”

We take a look at another character in the bible who also made his light shine so much that, God was glorified and many were blessed as a result of him. Joseph a beloved son of Jacob, grew up among his brothers but made sure he always told the truth and did that which was right. Gen 37:2. His brothers sold him into slavery yet He kept living an upright life. Gen 39:3 KJV” And his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.” God does not endorse the actions of evildoers. For God to be with him, meant he consistently pursued righteousness.

His master Potiphar put Him in charge of his whole house. Potiphar’s wife saw how favoured Joseph was, and began to lust after him. She kept making advances on him, yet he refused. Remember to shine means exhibiting the fruits of righteousness.  Listen to Joseph’s response to her amorous requests. Gen 39:9 KJV “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?” Dear child of God, do not yield to fornication, for it is a sin against your very body, and will deem every light you have, so much that demons or devils, will easily flock your body and life.

Joseph ran away from her, yet she took hold of his cloths and used that as an evident to accuse Him, of seeking to sexually molest her. Joseph kept his uprightness even in the prison, and so God finally elevated him from, slavery , imprisonment to be become the next in command to king Pharoah. Dear child of God, you are the light of the world. Continue to be light and not darkness. Do not hide to do evil. Like Joseph maintain your brightness wherever you are. Remember what Jesus said light are not hidden under a bushel, but are placed on the top, so it can keep blighting the path of others. To be on top is to be significant in life. As light you are significant, so remain significant by shinning.

CONFESSION

I am the light of the world and would keep shinning no matter where and how things turn out. I am continually keeping faith with God to keep shinning. So long as I keep shinning, I remain on top, that is become very significant in this world.
