EX CHAMP (Open Heavens daily for teenagers 2016)
Memorise: Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, behold,thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. John 5:14
Please Read: Joshua 7:1-5, 7 But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel.
Bible in one year; Isaiah 1-2, Acts 1
Bible in one year; Jeremiah 5-6; Acts 14:19-15:11
When you are not a champion, only a few people pay attention to you.
But by the time you become a
champion, you will be on the radar of many people, including your enemies. A
champion has more enemies to contend with than an ordinary contender.
The Almighty had warned the children of Israel not to take anything from Jericho as booty, but Achan defied this instruction and stole part of the accursed materials. Joshua did not know about this. This singular act brought a lot of war causalities to the Israelites and turned the whole nation to ex-war champions. Beloved of God, I want to encourage you to abstain from any form of ungodliness because it is deadly (Romans 6:23). After a man’s sins are forgiven, the next thing is for the fellow to stop living in sin and to perform restitution (make good everything you’ve done wrong).
Holy Spirit, please help to be vigilant in maintaining my victory in Christ and help me not to fall into any temptation.
