TOPIC: PRIVY TO SATANIC PLOT
MEMORY VERSE: “Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out” (ACTS 5:9).
Recently, a 23-year old African mother of two, agreed with her friend to sell her baby for #200,000.00. After selling the baby, on the advice of her friend again, she used the money to buy a phone. Such was a satanic agreement to commit evil against an innocent child. Of course, the duo would not go unpunished according to the law.
If the earthly government would not spare her citizens who connive to do evil, a more grievous punishment awaits believers who conspire to do evil. Sapphira agreed with her husband to tell a lie to the Spirit of God. Telling lies or conspiring to lie is sin before God. The Bible says, “…though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished”, also, “…and he that speaketh lies shall perish” (Proverbs 16:5; 19:9).
Today, youths team up to rape, rob, abduct, destroy property and practice cultism. Though such youths may be expelled from school, they will equally experience eternal punishment in hell if they fail to repent and surrender their lives to Christ.
QUOTE: Telling lies or conspiring to lie is sin.
CHALLENGE: No sinner will go unpunished.
PRAYER: Give me grace to obey You, Lord.
