He Was Not The Same as His Brothers.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2) KJV
Every Christian has heard the story of Joseph.
Joseph was one of Jacob’s sons.
Even though he had a lot of brothers, he was quite different from them. How? Well, Joseph was different from them in the way he spoke.
( Genesis 37:2 KJV).
Joseph was a man of truth.
He was different from his brothers in his clothing.
His father made him a present, a unique tunic.
He was different from his brothers in his vision.
You do remember his dreams, right?
He was not just a dreamer.
God was showing him his future.
Though he didn’t know what his two dreams meant at the time.
His father, too, was a bit upset about his dreams.
He was different from his brothers in the way he was living.
He could have lived a life of sin if he wanted to, but he didn’t.
Even though he was alone with Potiphar’s wife, he still kept his integrity. He was different in his vocation.
Do you know what Pharaoh had to say to Joseph?
He said: “Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.” (Genesis 41:40) KJV
Don’t try to compare with anyone, especially those who are not living a Christian life.
Look to Jesus at all times.
Compare yourself with Him.
Have the desire to be more and more like Him.
Joseph emerged Victorious in all the challenges he faced.
