An Eye Covenant

Divider
I have made a covenant with my eyes

Job 31:1


There are many TV programs that are very well-written and entertaining for us. However, most of those same TV shows glorify sinful behaviors and lifestyles that are contrary to God’s word. As believers in Jesus Christ, we know that moment when a show has crossed the line. It’s in that moment we have a choice. We can immediately turn to something else or we can continue to embellish the flesh.

Many of us think that we are safe because we know Jesus and we would never do the sins that are on the TV. However, we can’t trample through the muddy sinfulness in front of our eyes and believe that we don’t get dirty. There’s something about watching R-rated entertainment that drains righteousness and purity from our hearts whether we realize it or not.

It’s important to make a covenant with our eyes to not gaze upon the sinfulness around us. Many of us are tempted to go further than what we would’ve done if it wasn’t for that seed of temptation being placed before our eyes. We have the Holy Spirit living within us and we subject Him to the futility of our flesh when we press on to entertain ourselves with ungodliness.

The question to answer is not “how far should we go in our entertainment preferences?” Rather it’s how far do we want to grow in our relationship with God? If we are expecting great things from God…then we will gladly change the channel or turn the TV off in order to be ready for His plan for our lives. We must pay attention to our conscience as God is calling His people to pull away from the desires of the flesh and press closer to Him.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to make a covenant with my eyes to refrain from gazing at sin. Give me the strength to do the right thing when I’m being entertained. Amen.

In His Service,
