Abstain From The Act – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 8th

(Take A Stand In His Word)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 1:8-11 NIV
“We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.”

As Christians, we must stand on God’s Word and not go with the world and its secular or political opinions.

The Bible says, “Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]” (1 John 2:15-16 AMPC).

For example, homosexuality is not a newfangled concept as many think; it dates back to Bible days, as far back as the book of Genesis!

The Bible clearly condemns it (1 Corinthians 6:9), and that’s one of the reasons they’re trying to get rid of the Bible in some parts of the world.

But that’s never going to happen. There’re even so-called “ministers” who profess to be gay and have become advocates.

Satan’s plan is to make sure that you’re vexed to compromise but be smart. In spite of all his shenanigans, you must stick to God’s Word. In John 14:15 AMPC, Jesus said, “If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.”

The proof of your love for Him is keeping His Word, and His Word adjures you to abstain from the act.

1 Timothy 1:9-11; Romans 1:26-32

Dear Father, thank you for the Holy Spirit who guides me in the way of righteousness and true holiness. I’m forever established in your Word. I pray for those whose minds have been blinded, that the influence of the devil is broken in their lives, and that henceforth, their hearts are open to receive your love for them, and be translated from darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Spend time to pray for those you know who might be involved in the act of homosexuality. Declare that the light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ shines upon their hearts and that they are brought into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
