Do Not Be Deceived

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NIV) Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Kemi had received Christ, but she was still a liar and an immoral person. She was told that what she did does not matter, but she was deceived. Her eyes opened when she read today's Bible verses. It even says that ‘do not be deceived’. The Spirit of God knew that the devil will try to deceive many Christians that they can continue in wrongdoing and still inherit the kingdom of God, but God wants you to know today that He has saved you from your sins through the sacrifice of Christ. You now have the power to say ‘no’ to sin and ‘yes’ to righteousness. This power makes you a child of God (see John 1:12, 1 John 3:9).

If you fall, do not be discouraged. Even if you fall seven times, you will rise again (see Prov 24:16). Your portion is not to remain on the ground. Rise up, dust yourself and continue the fight. The devil is trying to wear you out, but remember that the power at work in you is greater, so you are the one who will wear him out by not giving up but always rising up and moving on.

Go into today remembering that we war against the flesh in the place of prayer. Remember to use the power of God released through prayer to conquer the power of the flesh.
