Open Heaven 21st July 2021 RCCG Devotional Guide Topic: Don’t Be Worldly! Written By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

TOPIC:: Don’t Be Worldly!

MEMORIZE:

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. – 1 John 2:15

READ: 1 John 2:15-17

  1. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
  2. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.
  3. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

MESSAGE

In today’s memory verse, Apostle Paul enjoins us not to love the world and warned that we cannot love God and the world at the same time. He urges further that we should not engage in the works of darkness as listed in Ephesians 5:4-5, and Ephesians 5:12

“Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient… For ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God…for it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.”

Why, however, are there thieves in the congregations of Churches today? Also, Why are harlots in the Choir? Why are extra-marital affairs now commonplace among believers? The answer is simple: worldliness has become the order of the day! The get-rich-quick spirit is holding sway among believers who have forgotten Pauls counsel to be content with what they have (1 Timothy 6:6-11 ).

The end justifies the means philosophy growing in the Church today is contrary to the word of God that says everyone shall give account for his or her actions (Romans 14:12 ). Another reason for the growth of worldliness in the Church today is that the children of light have made our places of worship comfortable for evildoers.

Open Heaven 21 July 2021

Many believers are now living lives of deadly compromise. Integrity is now considered old school. How can we change this situation? The Bible says in Ephesians 5:7-8

“Be not ye, therefore, partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:”

The Bible in Romans 13:12-14 also says:

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us, therefore, cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; …But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”

Open Heaven 21 July 2021

Henceforth, let us walk as children of light (Ephesians 5:8 ) and separate ourselves from every form of worldliness. May the second coming of the Lord does not catch us unawares in Jesus name.

PRAYER POINT

Father, please grant me the grace to be vigilant that the day of the Lord will not catch me unawares, in the mighty name of Jesus.

HYMNS

IN CHRIST ALONE MY HOPE IS FOUND

  1. In Christ alone my hope is found
    He is my light, my strength, my song
    This Cornerstone, this solid Ground
    Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
    What heights of love, what depths of peace
    When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
    My Comforter, my All in All
    Here in the love of Christ, I stand
  2. In Christ alone! Who took on flesh
    Fullness of God in helpless babe
    This gift of love and righteousness
    Scorned by the ones He came to save
    Till on that cross as Jesus died
    The wrath of God was satisfied
    For every sin on Him was laid
    Here in the death of Christ, I live

    Open Heaven 21 July 2021

  3. There in the ground, His body lay
    Light of the world by darkness slain
    Then bursting forth in glorious Day
    Up from the grave, He rose again
    And as He stands in victory
    Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
    For I am His and He is mine
  4. No guilt in life, no fear in death
    This is the power of Christ in me
    From life’s first cry to final breath
    Jesus commands my destiny
    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Till He returns or calls me home
