I continued our series “The Life of Joseph: God’s Sovereignty in Our Suffering“this past weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at Joseph’s temptation in Genesis 39. Here, Joseph finds God’s present with him and even blessing him in suffering. Then, when things seem to be heading in a positive direction, he is caught in the webs of manipulation by Potiphar’s wife, ending up in prison.
You can view the message and sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast. Also, join in with our daily devotional that accompanies this series during Lent.
