TEXT: PROVERBS 6:24-29
(24) To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
(25) Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
(26) For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.
(27) Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
(28) Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
(29) So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
KEY VERSE: PROVERBS 6:28
Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
Immorality in a church hinders sinners from repenting and being converted. They justify themselves now and say we are all the same. Sometimes, even these sins that are committed by so called believers are worse than the ones than sinners commit. So sinners become “righteous”. They are the ones coming to comfort you. Oh! You committed immorality. It is God that will help us. You form union with sinners and they are now encouraging you in the union. Instead of being convicted, they come to sympathize with you. Oh! We should cry. Let our hearts melt. Why are our brothers disappointing God? Why are our sisters disappointing Jesus? Let it melt our hearts.
There is possibility of contracting gonorrhea, syphilis, venereal diseases or AIDS. You don't even think that. You are not even considering that. If you die, where will you go to? You are going to destroy yourself. Some become childless in life because of venereal diseases. Others cannot even function well in marriage because of venereal diseases. What about AIDS? Poor woman, she didn't know immorality. It's your husband that went and brought it from the roadside and come and gave it to you. Eh, Sister, how did it happen that you have AIDS? What happened? “Oh! I have been talking to my husband. It came from him.” Husband, you have been in the Church. What happened? “It was when I travelled” Oh, why would you do like that? See the damage you have done to an innocent person! You are shortening the life of that man or woman.
Immorality weakens other believers who are facing temptation. When you fall, the devil uses it as an instrument against them and saying “Even Brother so and so fell. Even Sister so and so fell. Even the other one fell, so what is your problem? Are you the only one?” He now gives excuses to weak Christians.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Immorality weakens others who are facing temptation.
