TEXT: PSALM 1: 1-6

MEMORY VERSE: Ps.1.1 – Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 

The kind of relationship or association you keep will tell much about you, this gives the true definition of whom you are.
King David wrote in the book of Psalms, his experience about the people he warned us against. These set of people are the ungodly, sinners, and scornful.
He warned us not to WALK with them nor yield to their advice. Their counsel is demonic, unfruitful, and full of wickedness.
Nor STAND in their ways because they are sinners, and while we stay with them they may pollute us and make us become like them.

1Cor.15.33 – Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

If you have a friend who is always pressurizing you into a situation to do wrong and sin, that person shouldn’t be your friend at all. Christians are to choose their friends wisely because bad friends will lead us astray from Christ. We are not to try to fit in with the worldly cool crowd.

Never SIT with the scornful, they mock the things of God, and they make fun of the things of God.

What happens when you WALK, SIT and STAND with these ungodly people?
I. You become like them
ii. You talk like them
III. They give you ungodly advice that violates God’s word.

For you to be a blessed man, you have to do the followings;

a. Separate yourself from the ungodly or worldly system. 2cor 6:14-17, Ephesians 5:11
b. Feed more on the word of God
c. Meditate on God’s word Psalm 1:2
d. Associate with Godly people
e. Never forget the gathering of the believer

Benefits of being a blessed man.
✓You shall be fruitful
✓ You shall blossom and not fade away
✓ You shall be prosperous.
Finally, brethren, the way of the righteous enjoy God’s presence while the ungodly will perish and fade away.
Will you meditate on God’s word or listen to the counsel of the ungodly?

Confession.
I am surrounded by the right people that will help me grow in God’s knowledge.
I will grow in God’s word as I study day and night.
I will not conform to the things of this world. Amen.
