A Pertinent Warning

Key Verse

“But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell” (Proverbs 9:18).

Text: Proverbs 9:11-18

In the last few decades, there have been stories of respected men and women in society rubbished or messed up with the terrible sin of sexual immorality. Always colour-coated by the devil and supported by human depraved nature, sexual sins account for the biggest scandal in our society and the church today.
Our text contains a pertinent warning and danger sign to all saints who intend to live victorious life and avoid spiritual shipwreck of their precious faith. A prostitute is highlighted in the passage sitting at the high place of the city and calling on potential customers to lure into sin through lust and immorality. The passage then warns and highlights the danger of falling into the sin of adultery. It brings about the destruction of one’s reputation built over the years and could damn the soul in hell, if there is no repentance.
Believers should be careful when dealing with the opposite gender. Many careless saints have fallen through this sin of the flesh. Fornication or adultery has brought down many from the faith. Unfortunately, the world continues to glorify sin and sees nothing wrong with it. Chastity and sobriety have been thrown overboard in a world controlled by social media, and amplified by the entertainment industry.
That we have these warnings in the Scripture is not enough; we must read and apply them to our lives on a daily basis. Just like the road signs are obeyed and enforced before safety of lives can be guaranteed, believers must follow strictly the divine imperatives of resisting the devil, fleeing fornication, watching and praying in order not to fall into temptation. God has made abundant grace available to help those who are tempted. And in every temptation, He gives us strength to overcome and creates a way to escape.

Thought for the day

A wise Christian sees danger written on every object of temptation.
