Run Away From Gangs

Key Verse

“My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.” Proverbs 1:10

Text — Proverbs 1:7-15


A gang is a group of people (boys and girls) or organization formed for the purpose of doing evil. A member of a gang is called gangster. Gangsters work together to do evil or commit crimes such as immorality, ritual killings, cultism, stealing, bullying, violence, exam malpractices and other criminal activities; these are works of darkness. God does not want any of His children to have anything to do or join any of these evil and criminal gangs. Gangs make unsuspecting pupils or students to join them by enticing them with money, gifts, promises of protection, popularity and other things that can easily draw or attract the person they are trying to catch.

Never join them, they are evil, they are agents of the devil What are the results of joining them?

(i) Separation and loss of fellowship with God.
(ii) Such a child is given to evil doing which brings God’s judgment.
(iii) A gangster will miss the rapture and miss heaven.

How does a child avoid becoming a gangster
(i) Reject any invitation to join gangs.
(ii) Make sure you are a true friend of Jesus.
(iii) Be in fellowship with other friends of Jesus.
(iv) Read your Bible every day.
(v) Be watchful and prayerful.
(vi) Be assured of God’s protection every time.

Jesus Christ has promised never to leave you. Jesus is always by your side to provide all your needs.
