Sometimes You Have to Run Away from Sin

Posted by Al Hathaway Thursday, July 28, 2011

"He left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house." Genesis 39:12


Some of you remember the story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife; instead of compromising his principles, he ran away from her and avoided her advances.

In some situations to be safe, you must run from acts of evil and sin. You may need a covenant with your eyes not look upon causes of temptation, because just a spark from a look could become a blazing fire in an instant.

This day, you and I, may be exposed to great peril, may we have the serpent's wisdom to keep out of it and avoid it. The wings of a dove may be more useful for us this day, to keep us out of the jaws of a lion.

It may be better to be an apparent loser by declining evil. Why? Because it is better to lose your cloak, then your character.

No ties of friendship, no chains of beauty, no flashing of talent, no shafts of ridicule should turn you from fleeing from sin.

All you need to do is to "commit yourself to God, to resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Furthermore, if he doesn't flee, then it is alright for you to flee.
