THEME: SET NO EVIL BEFORE YOUR EYES

TEXT: Psalm 101:3
3 I will set no evil thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

MEMORY VERSE: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:22-23

MESSAGE:
Being spiritually alert all the time is what every believer of Christ should not ignore. We are living in a world where the devil has painted evil good and appealing to weak Christians. The fact is that so many Christians commit sin through their eyes. How? They pollute their spiritual life through what they see, view or watch.

Let us not forget that sin starts building up in the mind through mainly what the eyes see. And so we are not permitted to watch ungodly T.V programmes, videos, films. It is also an abomination for us to read romantic novels, magazines or pornography articles. As Chosen members, it is a sacrilege for us to go to cinemas, dancing halls or to beaches where unbridled immorality takes place.

You might be saying, “Well, does it matter?” it’s just entertainment, it is not a big deal and that is why our memory verse says that the light of the body is the eyes. As you watch this evil programmes through your phones, ipad, ipod or any other device, they will set your imagination aflame, shape your desire and thought towards committing evil especially immorality and worldliness.

If you love watching musicals, home or foreign videos or other ungodly programmes, you are gradually leaving the narrow way to the way of death and eternal shame, so amend your ways.

Let us therefore select what we read, watch or view in line with the word of God. you must understand that whatever you call entertainment whether on the radio, T.V or magazine and newspapers does not have the support of Jesus Christ whom you claim is your master, so be wise before it is too late.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray and ask God to heal your eyes of pollution.
Pray and vow never to set wickedness before your eyes.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
