Deaf Can Say “No” to Sin!
The Bible tells about many people, both men and women, who decided to live right for God. Daniel and Joseph are two good examples because they decided to do right no matter what happened. Daniel vowed that he would not do wrong. A king tempted him to sin but Daniel said no. He decided to keep his life clean and serve God. Joseph was tempted, but he said, “How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9). Potiphar’s wife tried to tempt Joseph with sexual sins, but Joseph said no. He decided to follow God. Sometimes deaf Christians are tempted to follow the world and sin. Some become weak and fall into sin. Deaf people are also tempted with sexual sins, gambling, drinking, and pornography. The same as Joseph and Daniel, you need to say no to sin. Some deaf Christians act like the world. They have bad habits of tobacco, drinking, cursing, flirting, adultery, dirty books, bad movies, and many other things that could be named. Some watch bad pornography on the Internet. Don’t do it! Deaf people can do right and decide to stop sin. The Bible says, “If any man defile (make dirty with sin) the temple of God (your body), him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive (fool) himself…” (1 Corinthians 3:17-18). Learn to say “no” to sin and “yes” to God.
Don’t let your body control your life!
Dear friends, decide to do right and follow God. The end of sin is destruction, but the end of doing right is peace and joy. You can decide the same as Daniel and Joseph to do right. We need more Deaf Christians to be Godly examples.
The deaf can… I am Deaf and I follow God.
