Vital signs- Saturday, March 20th, 2021



“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.”

(Psalm 57:7)

 


Adrian Rogers kept a motto on his desk in college that said: “He who would not fall down ought not to walk in slippery places.” Keep yourself clean. Keep yourself pure. Watch what you set before your eyes."


Are you aware that how you think governs what you see? Why do some people view unclean things and others don’t? Why do some look at pornography—even becoming addicted—when others don’t? Because your thought life will govern what you do. It will guard your sight. You’re not just a helpless victim. You are through the power of the Holy Spirit can transform your mind .

The book of Job recounts the life of one of the most respected men in the Old Testament. Job made himself a promise: “I made a covenant with my eyes, not to look upon a maid” (Job 31:1). He made a decision. Now, may we make a solemn decision before God, saying, “By God’s grace and with His help, and the help of community I’ll not look to things that take my mind off of Christ.”


Don’t wait until temptation comes and you’re in the middle of it. Beforehand, make a covenant with your eyes, because what you see determines what you think. If we’re to have a walk of purity in obedience to God, we must determine ahead of time what our course of action will be.

Make the decision right now to keep your walk pure and holy for God’s glory. One big decision will take care of a lot of little ones.
