“The Wickedness Of The Wicked”

Key Verse

  “Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins” (Psalm 7:9).

Text — Psalm 7:18-11


“It is a bad world, Donatus, an incredibly bad world. But I have discovered in the midst of it a quiet and good people who have learned the great secret of life. They have found a joy and wisdom which is a thousand times better than any of the pleasures of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They are masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are Christians… and I am one of them.”

The above quote is taken from the famous letter of Bishop Cyprian of Carthage to his disciple, Donatus. In the letter, he contrasted the characteristics of two groups of people living on this earth – the wicked and the righteous. The wicked are exceedingly wicked, darkened in conscience and decadent in their deeds. The righteous on the other hand are upright in heart and sound in their principles. The psalmist, in our text, agreed with this classification. Where do you belong? Are you among the righteous or do you belong to the wicked? The choice is yours.


The wicked are exceedingly wicked


Christians have overcome the world.

Prayer for today
