READ: 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

  1. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
  2. And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
  3. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
  4. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
  5. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Hebrews 13:1-25, Ezekiel 18-19


MESSAGE:


There is a popular adage that says birds of the same feather flock together. Another one says Show me your friend and I will tell who you are. No matter how spiritual you are, you friends mirror you, they reflect who you truly are. No wonder our memory verse states that evil communication corrupts good manners. A Yoruba adage says A sheep that befriends a dog will eat faeces. Make friends that will endear you more to Christ, challenge you to pursue your dreams and fulfil them. Have friends that will impact your life positively and not those who will drag you down.


The best way to choose a friend is to see Jesus in that fellow. Is the fellow born again? Does he/she exhibit the fruit of the Spirit according to Galatians 5:22-23? Is he or she serious with his/her academics? Is he/she committed in the fellowship or Church? These are the things you should watch out for. However, don’t forget that you must also have these attributes.


REFLECTION:


Are your current friends drawing you closer to Christ or away from Him?


HYMN 19: What A Friend We Have In Jesus


1 What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear;
What a privilege to carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer
Oh! what peace we often forfeit,
Oh! what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.


2 Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Can we find a Friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrow share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.


3 Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.
