Make a Choice to Avoid Wickedness
(Passage: Luke 22)
Evil reigns in the domain of wicked people. While goodness makes good people prosper; evil people will perish in their vices. Evil people will reap the consequences of their actions here on earth, and permanently in hell.
Wickedness didn’t just appear on the planet, Satan introduced it to make people misbehave, sin against God, and miss their opportunity of receiving God’s blessings.
People who engage in wickedness are more or less children of the devil; they will perish with their master unless they exercise repentance.
Don’t allow Satan to manipulate you into engaging in evil, because evil has consequences!
The world is so full of evil to such an extent that people can’t trust each other anymore. The horror gets to an extent that a son would betray his father, and a wife would want to kill her husband for money. What a life!
Children of God must run as far as possible from engaging in wickedness. Why? Satan does not only target the unbelievers, he also targets believers. Of course, this should not scare God’s children, but we still have to be vigilant.
(Christians must understand that we have God who is strong enough to help us successfully scale through in this wicked world.)
Fret not, God will help you overcome in this wicked world!
Be careful and learn how Satan stole Judas’s mind:
Judas Iscariot, who was one of Jesus’ twelve disciples sought bribery, and he handed over his master to the enemies. (What a wicked act!) The scripture reported;
“Satan entered Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve. So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them. And they were glad, and agreed to give him money. So he promised and sought opportunity to betray Him, to them in the absence of the multitude” (Luke 22:3-6).
God Saves His Children From Wickedness
You get God’s backing!
As many unimaginable wickedness reigns on earth, children of God has many lessons to learn, but we must not be afraid. God will help us win.
Believers should prepare their mind so as not to be disappointed. In this world, servants would betray their masters and family would disintegrate. Come to think of it, “trust” would be difficult to earn.
Hope remains for the believers in Christ Jesus. The earth that comprised all atrocities will not last forever!
God will soon bring this world to an end and send his children to new earth that is perfect (devoid of wickedness). He will send bad people to a permanent place called the hellfire.
To be just is to be rewarded in righteousness. People should be just and do good so that they can prosper.
Let’s have a simple mathematics to summarize this:
Person + Godliness – Wickedness = Eternal blessing
If you’ve doubted about the world being evil, then you should be convinced by the recent activities. Wars, killings, rape, and different forms of vices are on the rise. Consider to speak up against actions of violence and not partake in any form of sin. #speakup #activity #war #form #actionsClick to tweet
Dear God, I understand that the present world is full of evil and you will soon destroy it; you will make a new world that will host your saints. Therefore, I want to be qualified for the new world that will soon come. Please count me worthy; help me to be mindful of what will make me remain qualified. Please let my faith in Your Son Jesus Christ qualify me for your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
Remember: Wickedness Can’t Rival Goodness
