“Deliver Yourself”

Key Verse

“Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.” Zechariah 2:7

Text — Zechariah 2:1-8


Our Bible passage is God’s call to the children of Israel to separate themselves from the evil activities of the ungodly people of Babylon where they lived at that time. It was their duty to do that. Their deliverance was in their own hands. People remain servants to sin as long as they choose. Your father or your mother cannot set you free from bad influences. It takes your personal decision to be free. Do not say, “I am a child. I cannot do anything to help myself. I have no strength of my own. They are stronger than me.” You are the only one who can deliver yourself from the control of bad friends and evil habits.

Revelation 18:4 is a call and warning to all friends of Jesus “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Call on Jesus for help. Promise Him that you will not go back to the company of bad friends. He is able to help you.
