Ephesians 5:3 (KJV) But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints
Greg found himself in a situation he never knew was possible. He had joined some ‘successful’ friends in their secret society. He was a believer who had been baptized in the Holy Ghost, but because of covetousness, he was willing to do whatever it takes to make lots of money. This covetousness ultimately led him to become a member of a demonic secret society. He didn’t plan to go that far into darkness, but it was a slippery slope and he couldn’t help the fall.
Sexual immorality is any sexual experience outside marriage between a male man and a female woman. Uncleanness is usually related to sexual immorality and would usually lead to it. Drbouchery, lasciviousness, and pornography are good examples of uncleanliness. Covetousness is the insatiable desire to get money at all costs. It is not occasioned by need but by greed and comparisons. These three vices are some of the most potent tools the devil uses to erode the faith of believers and cause a shipwreck of faith.
Go into today being careful to ensure that these dangerous works of the flesh are very far away from you. Trust the Lord for wisdom to destroy systems that enhance them and build systems around your life that make it very difficult for you to walk in them.
— Abraham Damilola Arigi
