How Then Can I Do This Great Wickedness, And Sin Against God

Old World Witness For Christ

Some time after Joseph became an overseer in Potiphar’s household, Joseph was repeatedly approached by Potiphar’s wife to commit adultery with her. It is instructive to note Joseph’s response as follows:

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?

Shouldn’t we resolve now, through personal commitment, prayer and meditation, that if this temptation ever comes along in our lives that we will respond the same as Joseph did and not sin against God?
