"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Genesis 39:1-23
But one day, when he went into the house to do his work and none of the men of the house was there in the house, she caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand and fled and got out of the house.

We live in a hypersexualized culture. There is no doubt about that. We face temptation of a sexual nature on TV, on the internet, at work, at home, and even at the grocery store. However, if you we were honest with ourselves, this temptation is really a symptom of a much bigger longing, one that may or may not have anything to do with sex. The story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife is a tragic and yet all to familiar story-line to today's modern American. If we are going to win the day we need to know the way of temptation and be able to see God's work on our behalf to assist us in that fight. We can't flee on our own strength. Join us as we talk about The Way of Temptation and look to Christ as our model for obedience and joy in the face of looming sin.
