Bible reading: Matthew 4:4-11.

Memory Verse: For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age. Titus 2:11-12 (NKJV)

STUDENT: Hmmmm! I see clearly now. But sir, I do have bad thoughts on my mind.

TEACHER: Can you stop your service provider from sending you some unsolicited text or can you stop TV stations from displaying just any program? Also, can you stop a bird from flying over your head?

STUDENT: (Laughs) That’s impossible sir!

TEACHER: But can you delete those SMS from your phone and change the TV stations; switch off the TV and stop the bird from building nest on your head?

STUDENT: Yea! Yea!!  Very sure, sir. Nice illustration sir.

TEACHER: As long as you are in the flesh, filthy and unclean thought would come but just as you can delete those unwanted SMS and stop a bird from landing on your head; so you can resist the devil and those thoughts.

Holiness is not the absence of evil thoughts or sexual urge but it is a life that chooses to resist those evil thoughts from gaining grounds within and to keep those desires in check until the appropriate time else they become a snare.

STUDENT: Wow! Wow! Thank you, teacher. You have taken some burdens off my neck.

TEACHER: You are welcome.

Key point: Holiness is possible within and withal.

Prayer points

  1. Mind demons, roast to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Holy Spirit, strengthen my inner man to be able to say “No” to sin.
