Preaching: Controlling the Moment

Sermon preached on the elements of self control, be it with family or friends, at home or at work in our daily struggle to avoid sin we’re presented by challenges and temptations requiring control. Just as Joseph was gifted by grace to avoid sin, we are naturally graced by the same gift to avoid sin and temptation in our lives. “No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife, How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to be with her” (Genisis 39:9-10). Presented by Deacon Shayne McDonald in the Ss Peter and Paul Parish in Sydney, Australia.
