Avoid Sinful Places.

Key Verse

“For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds” (2 Peter 2:6).

Text — 2 Peter 2:5-10


There are many reasons why a child of God should avoid sinful places. Where you dwell ultimately defines you. If you live in a community of criminals or prostitutes, people will identify you with their evil practices. Moreover, you are likely to marry, make friends or do business with people in the place where you frequent or settle. If these people do not share your Christian beliefs, then you may fall into a steel trap.

Being in a sinful place is a choice, be it a school, society, or residential accommodation. That was the case of Lot in our study today. Pitching his tent towards Sodom, made his interaction with the people inevitable; in fact, he eventually married out his daughters to them.

My friend, if there is any time to avoid sinful places, it is now. Sinful places exist physically, such as clubhouses, in imagination, on television, and virtually on internet sites. Friend, when you go to sinful places, destruction will most likely come your way. So choose to be where you are safer, by the grace of God.


Being in a sinful place is a choice


Watch to avoid where the snares of the devil are.

Prayer for today

Lord, deliver me from sinful places.
