BIBLE TEXT: 1 Corinthians 8:9-12
9 – But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.
10 – For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
11 – And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
12 – But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
LESSON INTRODUCTION:When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.’ What is abuse? Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of a thing, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in diverse ways like physical, emotional, mental etc.. But our concern is based on today’s topic: How can a Christian youth abuse the use of phones and ICT?
When mobile phones that are supposed to bring God’s blessing to the individual now becomes a source of distraction and addiction such that it has taken the place of God even during sermons, the majority of our youth go to social media for chatting, browsing etc.. Many of them have attracted God’s curses because of their disregard for God.
This is an abuse.
TEXT REVIEW: 1 Corinthians 8:9-12
i. We should not allow our liberty in Christ to become a stumbling block to both the weak believers and the unbelievers.
ii. Whatever God has given to us, must be handled for the edification of our brothers and sisters to the glory of God.
LESSON OUTLINES
A: MOSES ROD AS A CASE STUDY OF AN ABUSE:
We should examine this step by step:
STEP ONE: Exodus 4:2-4 – The ordinary rod in the hand of Moses before, now became a miraculous rod because Moses was on a mission for God.
STEP TWO: The rod swallowed all the magicians’ serpents in Pharaoh’s place. – Exodus 7:9-12
STEP THREE: The rod parted the Red Sea. – Exodus 14:16
STEP FOUR: Exodus 17:5-6 – The rod was used to smite the rock for water.
STEP FIVE: Numbers 20:8-11 – God instructed Moses to use the rod and speak to the rock for water again.
STEP SIX: Moses did not enter the promised land because he did not use the rod the manner he was told to. Numbers 20:12
ACTIVITY: How can somebody abuse his / her phone / ICT?
SUMMARY: Please be wise.
CONCLUSION: Youth, please beware! The same gadget you are playing with, can become a link that may lure you to hell. Quite a number of youth are regular visitors to pornographic sites and many have become addicted to it. Laptops are designed for positive things and not for internet frauds. Moderation or self-control is needed in the use of phones and ICT (internet). So you are enjoined to use them ONLY for GOD’S GLORY.
PRAYER POINTS:
1. Father, thank You for Your word of correction.
2. Father, please give our youth a listening ear always.
3. Father, please anoint Daddy G.O. and Mummy G.O. more than before.
4. Father, destroy every plan of the devil to recruit our youth through abuse of phones and ICT (internet).
5. My phone, internet and ICT hear the word of God. You will not send me to hell in Jesus’ name.
