Matthew 6:22-23 (NIV)
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,[a] your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy,[b] your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Spiritual vision is our capacity to see clearly what God wants us to do and to see the world from his point of view. But this spiritual insight can be easily clouded or dimmed by self-serving desires and interest. Our eyes easily get defiled when its not fixed on the right thing and causes havoc in our Christian life and even more in our marriages.
In marriage, when a man’s eye is said to be defiled it simply means this man can’t keep his eyes only on the wife but has a desire for other women. Satan has succeeded over the years in using the defilement of the eyes to destroy marriages and godly homes. The eye is the place where immorality grows and is fueled. On the bright side,the
eye is one of the places where immorality is cut off and diminished if we make a covenant with our eyes.
One basic way we get our eyes defiled is by looking at sexually suggested video content and pictures, adulterous conversations…. Through this the devil is able to sow the seed of lust and it grows gradually when we acknowledge it not. Beloved, it doesn’t matter your qualification this will ruin your life if it goes unchecked.
SEXUAL SIN THE FRUIT OF DEFILED EYES
Many men are walking with a defiled eyes unaware and majority of these men commits sexual sin. The main result of a defiled eye is sexual sin. One way or the other many get their eyes defiled because the pictures, post, messages and videos that are shared across the internet.
Christians are to exercise restraints in everything, thus not giving heed to tares ,rubbish and unwholesome conversations which will inevitably lead to the damaging of our faith in God. The good news is that if Christians will make radical decisions in the Lord, they will be freed from all unrighteousness. Social media has caused so many harm among men and in marriages because of its highly nudity contents.
A GOOD EYE IS FIXED ON GOD
An eye would be good, pure and right when its fixed on God only . Remember, the eye is where lust is fueled and is the same place its cut off. When our desire are His desires, and when our interest are His interests, then we will be freed from getting our eyes defiled because we are assured of God’s leadership. God is so much concern about our relationship with Him and anything that hinders our love for Him will be taken off when we call upon Him for help. Recognizing the problem, confessing it before God and asking for His power is the basic means a defiled eyes can be purified. I encourage purity in our conversations with one another, the music we listen and the video we watch as well. And I believe that ,when it is done for God it must be pure. Keep your eyes away from evil ! God bless you
JESUS IS COMING SOON.
