SUNSET AT NOON (I)

READ: 2 Samuel 13:28-29

 [28]Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant.[29]And the servants of Absalom did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all the king's sons arose, and every man gat him up upon his mule, and fled.


MEMORISE:The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover (Leviticus 18:9).

EXPOSITION
It is better to look at the leg of the cripple before complaining of the imbalance of the load on his head. Sun is known to rise early in the morning, to set later in the evening. However, a lot of many promising lives have been cut short, abruptly.
Amnon (the name means ‘faithful’) was the eldest son of King David and invariably the heir apparent to the throne of Israel. Did this prospect come to reality in his life? No, most sadly! Delaney once said, “The passion of love is nowhere as wasting and vexatious as where it is unlawful.” Against God’s rule, he had a ‘hot love’ (lust) for his own biological sister (vv. 1-15), and since the evil that men do lives with, and after them, Amnon met his untimely death, soonest.

If Christians know what lies ahead of them, they would discipline their mortal bodies (1 Cor. 9:27). Hope you are not misbehaving as a foreman, supervisor, or one privileged as the first graduate in your family? Abuse of power and position is abuse of God’s grace that can eventually make your sun hurriedly and untimely set at noon.

Youths, particularly, need to be warned to avoid unnecessary passion for money, sex, materialism, etc., for which a lot of people have lost their places in destiny. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Let us arm ourselves with God’s Word and pray to overcome the wiles of the devil. May your sun not set at noon, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, sanctify me so I don’t destroy myself with unnecessary passion.
2. Father, deliver youths who are already into hard drugs, internet fraud, lust for opposite sex, etc.
3. Oh Lord, heal the wounds of our leaders who have sustained injury occasioned by lust for women or arrows from the enemies.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 Kings 9:33 – 12:1; John 10:30 – 11:9.
