Do I Have To Tell?

In response to last week’s post about overcoming sin, several of you shared your fear about confessing your sin to others. You have legitimate concerns, but I have to wonder, do they justify continuing in sin? Is the possibility of gossip or strong emotions really a good enough deterrent to remain in bondage?

Homosexuality: A Story of Redemption Part 2

Yesterday I
introduced you to Rene. She’s a woman who was involved in the homosexual
lifestyle for more than 11 years. Today she is living proof of God’s power to
change hearts and lives.

Homosexuality: A Story of Redemption

Meet Rene. She is a former
homosexual now serving Jesus in full-time ministry. I couldn’t wait to pass her
story on to you because it is a beautiful testimony of God’s ability to redeem
all things.


Check out what happens in Genesis 39:11-12:

“ One day he went into the house to attend his duties, and none of the household servants was in side. She caught him by his cloak and said, ‘Come to bed with me!’ But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.” 

The “he” in this story is Joseph, who at the time was a slave in the house of Potiphar. The “she “ is Potiphar’s wife who is seeking to seduce Joseph. Scandalous, I know. While the plotline is interesting (sounds like a soap opera to me), it’s not the best part of this story. I am most intrigued by Joseph’s reaction when faced with the temptation to sin.
