Don’t Be A Fool.

Key Verse

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” Psalms 14:1

Text — Psalms 14:1-5


A fool is one who says God does not exist. Psalm 14:1 says “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works…” How best can a person that rejects his/her Creator be described? A fool and a terrible person indeed. No wonder such people do not enjoy true success and prosperity. Some people also pursue success without acknowledging God and they enjoy this world as if life has no end.

This is the height of human foolishness. Anyone who refuses to accept that Jesus Christ died for him or her and that He is the Saviour of the whole world is a fool.
A sinner is a fool, but God does not want him to remain in his foolishness therefore, he must acknowledge his sins, repent and ask for forgiveness and cleansing through the blood of Jesus.

Then he must consciously and prayerfully invite Jesus into his heart to be his personal Saviour and Lord. As believers, we should not behave like fools but must recognize God in all we do. We cannot succeed without God. Do not allow your relationship with God to suffer because of the pursuit of your life goal. Give God the first place in your life and He will make you successful and prosperous.

  1. These sermons are highly inspirational, highly captivating and a source of nourishment to the soul. Yes is course with the greatness of God where the earth trembles in his presence for someone to say such a God doesn’t exist, then that person is the most perfect example of the greatest foolish person who has sin against the Holy spirit. May God enrich his true sons with more wisdom.
