The Extraordinary Character of Joseph (Genesis 39b)

One of the reasons to study the Old Testament is to get to know the true heroes of the faith so we can imitate their lives.  We can learn much by looking at the character of Joseph, who is an upward call for all Christian men. In this lesson we start by looking at Joseph’s character of integrity in his work (including in prison), and consider our own examples and personal righteousness at our jobs and in our homes. The lesson then turns to Joseph’s uncompromising commitment to sexual purity. This lesson brings out in the open the problem of internet pornography in the church and gives practical, Biblical instruction to overcome this devastating sin, including how to help others.
