Bahan Alkitab: Genesis 39 and Philippians 4:8
Be Pure in heart and Mind.
Subject of adultery…God commands faithfulness in marriage. Based on God’s word and God teaches us that marriage is a total commitment. It is a relationship where husband and wife become one. (Gen 2:24) because it is patterned after the love of Jesus Christ for his church.
Joseph background – Joseph was born in Jacob’s family in his old age together with his younger brother Benjamin. Joseph and Benjamin were loved dearly by his father. One day Jacob gave him a beautiful robe and that makes his brothers jealous or resentful towards him why the daddy has a special treatment towards Joseph. Not only that Joseph also told them about his dream and they don’t like about his dream. Therefore, they have planned a wicked things in their mind to took away his robe and kill him. But God has helped Joseph, he wasn’t killed but they sold him to some trader / traveler as a slave for 20 pieces of silver.
Joseph at the Potiphar’s house.
Joseph the handsome young Hebrew man…who was sold by his brother because of jealously. To one of an Egypt man called Potiphar. Joseph is a man after God’s own heart although he was sold as a slave in Egypt but he does everything for the glory of God’s name. He has done his best, He obey God’s word in everything he does. His obedient heart and mind were turned toward the Lord. Therefore, the important captain Potiphar’s was trusted Joseph with everything including his crops, livestock and all his business dealings. From that time on, The Lord blessed Potiphar’s home and everything he owned because of Joseph.
Joseph was a handsome and well-build young man and Potiphar’s wife like the way he looked and began to think about him and want him for herself. Many times, she has been trying to invite Joseph to spend time with her alone in her bedroom. Her thoughts were not pure, selfish and sinful. But Joseph refused and he said “My master trusts me with everything that he has, I will not dishonor him. How could I behave as though I were your husband? That would be a very wicked thing. Joseph said, besides how could I sin against God in this way? Joseph said and did the right thing because his thought were pure. But Potiphar’s wife would not listen and she’s getting upset as she couldn’t get what she wants. Each time Joseph refuse and try to keep away from her as much as possible.
One day, however Joseph taking care all his responsibility and none of the household servants were around. Potiphar’s wife saw the opportunity to get a hold of Joseph. She grabbed his coat and said “come to my room” she demanded. But Joseph, tore himself away leaving his coat in her hand as he ran out of the house. She began screaming after she ran outside and her servants came running to her side. She tried to twist the story by saying the “Hebrew young slave whom my husband trust try to fool of me, she cried” He tried to force me to spend time alone with him, but when I screamed for help, he ran off and leaving his coat behind. She told the same story to her husband “Potiphar”. Potiphar believes in his wife and furious towards Joseph. Put him in jail to punish him. But the Lord was in control of everything that happened to Joseph and he was with him in prison too.
The chief Jailer was discovered Joseph was a good man, godly character man and he put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners and over everything happened in the prison. After Joseph was allowed to leave prison, God continued to pour his blessing into Joseph’s life. Joseph obeyed God, always putting him first and God honored him.
Therefore, Ephesians 5:22-23 – mentioned that God was against sexual immorality because it will betray the love and unity of marriage. Violates the family and tears at this holy institution designed by God himself. Without a savior who can help us, we can’t keep God’s word or walk in his ways.
You shall not commit adultery.

Bible story minggu mengenai Hukum ke -6 yaitu “jangan mumbunuh”, yaitu mengenai pembunuhan manusia pertama yang di lakukan oleh Kain thd Habil adiknya.
Kain tidak senang saat melihat bahwa kurban persembahan adiknya Habil di terima oleh Tuhan, sedang Tuhan tidak menerima kurban persembahannya.

02. Pembunuhan di lakukan oleh karena ada kebencian di dlm hati. membunuh adalah perbuatan yang kelihatan, tetapi itu di mulai dari hati yang membenci.
03. kita harus menghargai hidup sesama, krn Yesus sudah rela mati untuk manusia yang berdosa, kita tidak berhak utk mengambil nyawa orang lain.

Murid-murid Tuhan Yesus giat mengabarkan Injil, dan banyak orang menjadi percaya. Salah satunya adalah seorang wanita bernama Dorcas (Tabitha) di kota Yope. Dorcas mengasihi Tuhan. Dia mau melayani Tuhan dengan menolong orang lain. Karena dia pintar menjahit, dia banyak membuat baju untuk orang-orang miskin. Suatu hari Dorcas sakit dan akhirnya meninggal. Banyak orang menjadi sedih. Kebetulan Petrus ada di dekat situ, dan dipanggil datang ke rumah Dorcas. Ia melihat banyak orang yang sedih dan memperlihatkan baju yang dibuat oleh Dorcas. Petrus berlutut dan berdoa pada Tuhan. Lalu ia berkata, Tabitha (Dorcas), bangkitlah. Dorcas membuka matanya dan hidup kembali. Semua orang disana menjadi takjub dan gembira. Banyak orang menjadi percaya Tuhan setelah Dorcas hidup kembali.
Dorcas sepanjang hidupnya melayani Tuhan dengan menolong orang lain dan sudah menjadi berkat untuk orang banyak, bahkan waktu ia meninggal juga menjadi berkat.
Bagaimana dengan kita? Apakah kita mau melayani Tuhan? Maukah kita menjadi berkat untuk orang lain? Tuhan sudah lebih dahulu mengasihi kita, biarlah kita juga mempunyai hati yang mau memperhatikan dan menolong orang lain.

Bahan Alkitab: Acts 16 : 11-15
One day, in Troas, when Paul was sleeping, he had a dream. He saw a man of Macedonia was standing and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” Paul, Silas, Timothy obeyed God’s calling and went to Macedonia.
On Sabbath day, they went out to a riverside, because they heard that people were praying there. Yes, they found some women had gathered there. Paul began speaking to the women. He told them about Jesus Christ. He told them how Jesus died on the cross for the sins of men. He told them how Jesus rose from the death and returned to heaven. And after that, Jesus sent Holy Spirit to all believers so they could serve the Lord. A woman named Lydia; she was a seller of purple clothes. During that time, purple clothes was very expensive. Usually, only kings and rich people wear purple clothes. Lydia listened to every word Paul said. God opened her heart and she believed in Jesus Christ as Savior. After that she and her family were being baptized. Now she is ready to serve God. She asked Paul, Silas, and Timothy to come and stay in her house. Lydia wanted to serve God thru helping God’s servants. She wanted them to have good food, a nice place to rest so they had time to tell others the good news about Jesus.
Children, we are all called by God. When we hear God’s Word, Holy Spirit works in our heart and make us believed in Jesus as our Savior. Later, we are baptized. Some of you may have been baptized when you were a baby. God said we must grow in Him. How can we grow? By reading bible and pray every day. Then just like Lydia, we want to serve God to give thanks to God. How can we serve God? We can serve God by serving others. Eg. Share food, toys, give seats in bus/mrt for those who need them, help to carry groceries bags, etc.
