Lessons from the wise virgins: They said no to losing their oil
Text: Acts 20:29-31
The wise virgins refused to please the other virgins to their own detriment. Keeping their oil meant keeping their light on; to keep your spiritual light on-means keeping your relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit stays in a holy (sinless) place. Around us today there are Christians who, even though we don’t judge them, have compromised their faith and we must be careful not to let them lure us into sins and disobedience that they have fallen into. Know this, that when you train yourself to say no to things, people and activities that want to rob you of your fellowship with God daily or rob you of eternity with God, you prove that you love yourself and are serious about your life.
Not all suggestions from our friends, even Christian friends are godly, as such we should rely on the Holy Spirit to teach us to know what is wrong and what is right. Some things may even look right looking at it physically, but with the help of the spirit of God, you will find rot in them.
Start to say the necessary NO from today!
Pray: Lord help me –I never want to lose fellowship with your Spirit, I don’t want to compromise my faith-keep me focused to the very end in Jesus’ name, amen.
MV: Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove them Ephesians 5:11
