Avoid profane chatter

2 Tim 2:16 (NET) But avoid profane chatter, because those occupied with it will stray further and further into ungodliness

Even though Deji was born again and a member of the choir, he had a practice that was now becoming a dangerous habit. He had a female contact on WhatsApp that he would chat with regularly, and these chats were becoming more and more profane every day.

She also added him to a chat group that was created for profane chatter. They would share dirty jokes, experiences, and pictures.

Even though Deji was not yet involved in any physical immorality, his involvement with these chats caused him to stray further and further into ungodliness. It was just a matter of time before he fell down flat spiritually. Thankfully, the Lord used one of Deji’s closest friends to deliver him from his spiritual free fall. He accidentally saw an indecent picture Deji received from the chat group.

It is much easier to get involved with indecent chatter than to actually get involved with what is being talked about. Many have lost great spiritual power because of this. They become very weak spiritually and are no more effective in their kingdom assignment.

I’ve discovered that it becomes very difficult to get involved in indecent chatter with people who you are already sharing the word of God with. If you share the word of God daily with your friends on social media, it becomes very difficult for any of them to initiate indecent chatter with you.

As you go into today, determine to flee from all appearances of evil by meditating on God’s word and sharing it at every opportunity.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I thank you for the opportunity to be your child. I ask that you help me purge myself of everything that makes one an unworthy vessel. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
