Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: It’s not OK!
“And do not be conformed to this world…” Romans 12:2.
By whose standard do you make your choices and what principles do you build your life on? Though we live in this world and are pressed all about us with the wisdom of this world, the standard and the wisdom of this world are by no means the standard for a godly life.
In the world today, it’s ok to have sex with anyone you wish as long as you are not doing so against their will. It also says it’s alright to get to do whatever makes you feel good as long as you are not hurting someone else in the process. But for us as children of God, as long as it is against the will of God as expressed in the scriptures, it is not right for us.
Although it may truly not hurt someone else and it may make you feel as good as the wisdom of this world suggests, most of the times these choices and decisions would leave your mind messed up, undermine your life and future, and keep you bound to these practices and vilest of all, make you vulnerable to demonic influences.
* Confession: I declare that I live in conviction only to the will of God as expressed in His Word and not to the ideologies of the world.
