2 Timothy 2:22
BIBLE PASSAGE: GENESIS 39:7-15
7  And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
8 But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what [is] with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
9 [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?
10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, [or] to be with her.
11 And it came to pass about this time, that [Joseph] went into the house to do his business; and [there was] none of the men of the house there within.
12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,
14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:
15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

2 CONDITIONS UPON WHICH WORKS OF THE FLESH ARE CONDEMNED INCLUDE:
In the main Bible Text above, we saw how Joseph refused bluntly to be lured into committing sin against God. Obviously, if he had gone in, that would have settled his destiny and prevented him from fulfilling the purpose of God for his life. Therefore, for us to fulfill our destiny, we must:
1. Flee from appearance of all evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
2. Flee from idolatry. 1 Corinthians 10:14
3. Mortify our bodies. Colossians 3:1-3
4. Not use the liberty of God for flesh. Galatians 5:13
5. Walk in the spirit. Galatians 5:16-18.
6. Not lust after evil things. 1 Corinthians 10:6-11
7. Not called into uncleanliness. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-7
SUMMARY
The body is the temple of God which must be kept holy as unto God.
CONCLUSION
A youthful lust is against the will of God for us. Lust is part of the work of the flesh which always rebels against the instruction of God.
Galatians 5:16-17. It is not all that glitters that is gold; some are temptations by the devil to ensure that we do not fulfill our destinies. We therefore pray for the Holy Spirit to lead us aright whenever the devil and his deceit are at work.
ASSIGNMENTS:
Identify the lust of the flesh you know.
PRAYER POINTS:
1. Father, please give all the youths in RCCG, the grace to flee from youthful lusts and be vessels unto honour in your hand.
2. Father, please grant us the grace to walk in the Spirit
3. We pray for all the youths, that all works of flesh will not hold them to ransom.
4. Father, as you empowered Joseph to run away from committing sin against you, please empower all our youths to overcome their temptations.
5. The lure of Satan using Potiphar’s wife amounted to nothing before Joseph, please do not allow our youths to fall victim of the devil’s deceit, in Jesus Name.
6. Father, our youths are our future; by fire, by force, let Your Spirit lead them at all times.
