It was a cold rainy nightfall…
It was so cold!
Warmth is all you will crave for and desire strongly…
Daisy just ran into the house all wet. Shivering!
She needed warmth!
It was an ungodly hour-long into the night.
It was Jone’s apartment.
It was dark.
The candle was litted!
The beverage was out of stock! even the tea!
She needed warmth!
She was dry but still shivering!
Jones drew her closer! into his arms…
…cuddled and fondled!
Bro Jones- the youth church leader.
Sis. Daisy- the music director.
Like it never happened! The next morning; at sunday service, Daisy led other saints in worship to God. Folks on their knees, weeping and broken in worship.
After the service, Jones addresses the youths on keeping their body as a living sacrifice. A charge he must give because of the Pastor’s plea with the youth to stop such scandals in church. Like it never happened! But it did! continually. They were trapped in this ungodly romance; a church romance they must keep a secret!
Who will deliver them from this body of sin?!
Many Born again, holy ghost filled,tongue speaking and fire breathing brethren are trapped in sexual immorality.
Their strong sincere desire to be freed is marred by the oath of secrecy they have sworn to keep in silence because of their deep commitment in kingdom service-a satanic deception!
You sure know- sin thrives and grows in secret. Secrecy is the yeast of sin.
John 3:20 says
“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
The fear of impending shame, disgrace and possible stigmatization by men hinders many from confessing their sin to a pastor or a confidant. Hitherto, the one time fall becomes a strong hold and continues secretly, robbing them of their relationship with God and their glory.
Proverbs 28:13 says he who covereth his sins shall not prosper…
You must also understand that there’s nothing done in the dark that will not come to the light.
Jeremiah 16:17 says
“For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity concealed from My eyes.
An old hymn says ; you may cover your sins that no man should know but you can not hide it from God.
Brethren! it’s time we come out of that darkness, out of that slavery and chains into light, freedom and break free into our God ordained glory.
Decide to let the cat out of the bag today! Now!
Remember, if we confess our sin he is faithful and just to forgive us,to cleanse us from all unrighteousness!
After doing this, we must find a confidant(someone who has a testimony of haven won same fight or overcame and still standing) and share with him/her about our shortfalls-we become accountable to someone.
Listen! if you are not accountable to any one, then you are on a speed lane to destruction.
If you have done this, then you must make a decision to stay away from the magnetic field of sin.
Remember you must work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Phil.2:12).
Stop leading that sister/ brother on!
Stop visiting that brother/sister alone at ungodly hours!
Stop unnecessary flirting and flattering!
Stop touching the opposite sex in their most sensitive areas in the name of civilization.
Put on Jesus (constantly soak yourself in the word, talk to him daily and keep the right company) so you don’t fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Mind what you feed your mind with through your eyes and your ears!
Your body is the temple(church) of the Lord- this church romance must stop!
Stop defiling the church.
