Open Heaven Devotional 17 November 2021 Message

Many Christians today are partaking in other peoples sins knowingly or unknowingly. It is unfortunate that those who indulge themselves in aiding and abetting sinful lifestyles fail to realise that, not only are they partaking in such sins along with the sinners, they would also be partakers of the punishment.

When you serve alcohol to your guests, you are not only encouraging the sinful act, you are also as guilty as the drinkers! Trading in alcohol as a child of God is even worse. Habakkuk 2:15 says: “Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!”

In our Bible text today, we read about how Jehoshaphat – the King of Judah, partook in the sin of his friend – the King of Israel and was almost killed. But for divine intervention, Jehoshaphat would have died in the battle that was not his.

The Bible says: “As the mountains are roundabout Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever. For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.” “Psalm 125:2-3”

We as children of God must cease being partakers of the sins of unbelievers, so that we will not suffer their punishment with them. Do not enter into a business partnership with people who do not share the same values with you.

Partnering with someone who does not believe in tithing or someone who does not have a problem with cutting corners will only get you into trouble down the road. Are you aiding and abetting sin in anyway? Repent today and prayerfully share what the word of God says about such sins with the concerned persons. I join my faith with yours and declare that as you obey, God will save such persons and hold you blameless, in Jesus name.

Prayer Point
Examine your life carefully and repent from all actions and inactions that encourage other people to commit sin.

Bible in One Year
Jonah 1:1-17 , Jonah 2-4

HYMN: What Can Wash Away My Sin?

1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

O precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
no other fount I know;
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my pardon this I see:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
For my cleansing this my plea:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin atone:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Naught of good that I have done:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
This is all my righteousness:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
