5 Minutes a day / 5 Days a week

with God

Psalms 119:37

Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things,
And revive me in Your way.

"If you buy this within the next half hour, you'll also receive at no extra charge a free ___________?"
"There is nothing else on the market like it, and it can be yours today for a mere ___________?"

Infomercials, don't you just hate them? They spend a half an hour trying to tell you how great their product is and how much you can't live without it.
Makes me wonder how I lived my life for the past forty-plus years without it.
But then if you sit there and watch all the great things these gadgets can do, you may be persuaded to purchase it. You may have a moment of weakness, but then come to your senses realizing how foolish of a thing it is to buy.

But if you think about it, when you watch a TV show on primetime TV, you are watching a half hour infomercial from satan selling you the sins and ways of the world.
What about a movie that is two or more hours long, full of violence and sex and drugs and profanity and anything else Hollywood thinks we need for entertainment. Once again you are being sold the sins of the world, you just don't realize it. The sad part is that we buy into them, because we condone them and don't see them as the sin that they really are.
How about secular radio? You listen to the DJ playing those tunes all day and by the end of the day you're ready to go out and party your little head off.

Think I'm crazy or to legalistic?
Try praying today's devotional verse:

Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things,
And revive me in Your way.

Then listening to nothing but Christian radio and Christian music for a week. Afterwards go back to your old radio station or listening to your old CD's. When you do you will feel like you have been slimed, because you realize what you have been sold all this time was a lie and worthless things that only feed the flesh but brings down your spirit.

Once you realize that these are worthless things, ask the Lord to show you the worthless things you have been watching on TV or at the movies. Then ask God to revive me in Your way.
If you do this within your lifetime, you will receive at no extra charge a free filling of the Holy Spirit. But act now before it's to late.
