Topic: Choose Friends Wisely
I wrote you in my [previous] letter not to associate [closely and habitually] with unchaste (impure) people. – 1 Corinthians 5:9, The Amplified Bible
The company you keep has such an influence on your spiritual life. Fellowshiping with godly people will help speed you on to victory while fellowshipping with those who are ungodly will drag you down to defeat.
That’s why the Bible has some things to say about your friends. That’s why it tells you to separate yourself from the world. Because evil companions will corrupt you.
Now, I’m not talking about ministry. Jesus Himself ministered to sinners. You have to mix with them to preach to them and pray for them. What I’m talking about here are the people you choose for friends.
If you want to walk in the things of the Lord, don’t choose friends who walk in the things of the devil, people who talk and act ungodly, who don’t give God any place in their lives. They’ll pull you down. As you rub shoulders with them, you’ll expose yourself to temptation. You’ll get so familiar with sin it will start to appear less repulsive to you. Sooner or later, you’ll fall into it.
So choose your friends wisely. Fellowship with those who call on the Name of the Lord out of a pure heart (2 Timothy 2:22). Expose yourself to their love and peace. Let their faith rub off on you!
Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 5:9-13
This message was written by Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, the leader of the Kenneth Copeland Ministries (www.KCM.org) which specializes in teaching principles of bible faith – prayer, healing, salvation, and other biblical topics.
Salvation Prayer: To experience the love and the many folds of God’s blessing there’s a need to be part of him by being born again. If you are ready to be part of this noble family kindly pray this prayer with me:
Lord Jesus, I believe you are the son of God who paid the price for my sins on the cross of Calvary, I believe you are risen and defeated in death. I repent from everything that’s dishonoring to your name, I receive you as my lord and personal saviour and I come into eternal life. Amen. Thank you, Lord, for saving me.
