Bible Reading: Who Do You Serve?
Text: Genesis: 39:6-9
The Lord was with Joseph in a very special way. Everywhere he went even in prison, he prospered. Although Joseph was a slave,he was given complete administrative responsibility over everything Pothiphar owned. Everything but but his wife
Just like he did to Eve, the devil presented Joseph with the one he was not meant to touch. But unlike Eve, Joseph resisted to be seduced by Pothipar’s wife.Looking at the life of Joseph, he had good excuses to fail. He had been degraded from the life of a Prince to a slave by his own brothers, and apparently deserted by God.
However, Joseph knew who his real master was. His answer to Pothiphar’s wife showed that his service was unto God and not unto man. He was not involved in eye service and was a diligent and faithful worker even though it appeared that God had forsaken him.
He stayed on God’s side and remained a faithful worker. At the end of the day, he became a prime Minister in a Foreign land. His story is a perfect example of the Cliché “from grass to grace” He became great because his service was unto God his master.
Thought: Be a Joseph of your time.
I remain your humble servant Pastor D A Taiwo. (ECWA GOSPEL CHURCH GRA BIDA)
