LET NOTHING CORRUPT YOU (It Matters Those You Form Associations With)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”
▶️ LET’S TALK
The word translated, “communications” above is the Greek “Homilia” and it has to do with such conversation or communion that’s coming from companionship and those you associate with. The effect, in the context of our opening verse, shows the importance of being mindful of your associations; those you listen to and relate with can corrupt your life.
When you study the verses preceding our theme verse, the Apostle Paul gives us the picture of certain people who had been teaching others that there isn’t going to be a resurrection. Listening to such false teachings, the Bible says, can give a corrupt mindset. Don’t receive counsel from just anyone, neither should you read every book and listen to every preacher you see on TV. The Bible says to prove every doctrine; it’s the reason you must study and know the Scriptures for yourself, so you’re not tossed around by every wind of doctrine. Your behaviour and life would be greatly affected by their communication (Ephesians 4:14).
You may think the communication or information being passed to you is harmless. But it’s akin to somebody sowing the wrong seeds in your garden, while you simply look on. Those seeds would certainly grow. You may say, “I’m just listening or reading the book; I really don’t believe the message.” Don’t be deceived; they’re sowing seeds into your life that’ll reproduce.
Let the wisdom of God guide you in choosing your friends, those you move with, those who inspire you to greatness and excellence, and those who inspire the best in you to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. If someone, whom you may even respect, tells you something you know isn’t consistent with the Word, reject it. Accept only that which is consistent with the word of righteousness in Christ Jesus.
