GLORIOUS WORD DEVOTIONAL
A DAY OF SELF DELIVERANCE
(Ephesians 5:3) But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
The Bible reports in Ephesians 5:3-5 that but fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints (Christians); neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
The Amplified Version of the Bible gives a better rendition of Ephesians 5:3-5 as ‘But sexual immorality and all [moral] impurity [indecent, offensive behavior] or greed must not even be hinted at among you, as is proper among saints [for as believers our way of life, whether in public or in private, reflects the validity of our faith]. Let there be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse [obscene or vulgar] joking, because such things are not appropriate [for believers]; but instead speak of your thankfulness [to God]. For be sure of this: no immoral, impure, or greedy person—for that one is [in effect] an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God [for such a person places a higher value on something other than God].’
Find time today and ask the Holy Spirit to help you stay away from doing all the things Apostle Paul listed in Ephesians 5:3-5. Declare that you are not subjected to these things any longer. Halleluyah!
Confession: I declare by the power of the Holy Ghost that I am delivered from fornication, all uncleanness, covetousness, filthiness, foolish talking, coarse jesting, and all forms of offensive behavior. My life glorifies God every day. I have decided to follow Jesus so I go His way always. I am blessed. Halleluyah!
Say this if you have never been born again. I declare from today that Jesus Christ is my Lord and I believe that God raised Him from the dead.
You can begin to attract God’s goodness into your life from today.
