Theme: Godliness is profitable unto all things.
Topic: 1 Timothy 4:8.
The appearance of God at this year’s Shiloh shall be a mighty one, but it calls for cleanliness in the life of all participants.
You don’t appear before him with dirty hands, so there’s a clarion call for godly living in this season and beyond.
We are in a season where sin is in a look out for victims, evil practices are normalized gradually.
So, we need to understand that the battle against sin is a fierce one that calls for conscious resistance, because every sin is overcomeable.
Nature of Sin:
In this context,we shall be considering the following natures of Sin:
A) The Sin Of Sexual Immortality.
This is a nature that Devil has injected into the world to destroy lives and destinies considering it’s gross consequences. 1 Corinthians 6:18.
Its effect transcends beyond the present generation per time.
In other words,when you commit sexual sin,your body (Mind), which is the seat of wisdom is destroyed, your mental capacity becomes limited, it limits your ability to function in God’s productive realm. No wonder many have ended as mediocre minds.
Songs of Solomon 4:12 It drops anointing,faith and productivity level.
Nahum 3:3-4. 1 Thessalonians 4:6.
B) The Spirit of Pride.
1 Chronicles 21:3.
Pride connotes an over estimation of self, which to taking correction with reaction.
It takes humility to be great and to be instructed. Because you won’t announce yourself, it’s men that God will use to announce you.
Where you desire to be tomorrow is someone’s testimony already,so humble yourself.
How to conquer Sin and Temptation..
1) Engage the Spirit of Love to conquer the spirit of Sin.
