MEMORISE: Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. – Philippians 3:2

READ: Psalms 1:1-4

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

MESSAGE

I used to have sinful friends before I became born again. These were friends that would come to my place to drink because they knew I always had alcoholic drinks. One day, after my conversion, my friends came around for their usual visit and I offered them soft drinks. They rejected them, but I insisted. With time, they stopped coming around. Thereafter, God gave me like- minded and godly people as friends.

Beloved, there is a difference between having friends and being part of a gang. Friends watch out for the interests of one another, read together, pray together, and do meaningful activities together. On the contrary, a gang specialises in terrorising, bullying, and making jest of people. They sometimes fraternise and do all sorts of bad things, such as drinking, smoking, taking hard drugs, and womanising, among others. Do you associate yourself with a gang or a group of friends? If those you call friends are a reflection of everything the Bible is against, then you should cut them off. If you have one friend who constantly encourages you to make the right moves, hold tight to that fellow. It is better to have just one true friend than to be involved with a gang.

ACTION POINT

Do something, no matter how little, to appreciate any of your leaders this week

HYMN 11 – O Lord My God, When Am In Awesome Wonder,

1.⁠ ⁠O lord my God!
When am in awesome wonder,
consider all
The worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars,
I heard the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r thro’ out
The universe displayed

CHORUS
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

2.⁠ ⁠Then through the woods
And forest glads I wander,
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the tress;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;

3.⁠ ⁠And when I think
That God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scare can take it in;
That on the cross,
My burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died
To take away my sin.

4.⁠ ⁠When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
My God how great Thou art!
