SAFS Instructions

Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived (other than Jesus) said in Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” But, you cannot get wisdom and understanding unless you receive instruction. That’s why Solomon said in Proverbs 8:33 “Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.” He goes on to say in Proverbs 4:13: (one of my favorite scriptures) “Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.”

To be a person who will not receive instruction, Solomon said is a person who has become a fool. Solomon addresses this in the first chapter of Proverbs. Proverbs 1:7 says: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:30-31, 33 continues by saying: “They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.”

This brings us to our subject SAFS Instructions. The subject is not entitled “SAF Instruction” denoting only one particular safe instruction; but “SAFS Instructions” plural, because we will be given numerous instructions on how to be safe from sin. One of the best ways to be safe from sin after you are born again is to receive SAFS instructions. SAFS is the acronym for: Stay Away From Sin. To put it in simple form let’s receive SAFS instructions from this poem.

You should “Stay Away From Sin” because:

– Sin will pull you in and destroy you in the Lion’s den.

– Sin will put you at bay and leave you to decay.

– Sin will take you where you’ve never been and destroy you in the end.

– Sin is not okay so be careful where you lay.

– Sin is not what you defend because it will never be your friend.

– Sin in one day can cause you to eternally stray.

– Sin will cause you to offend but righteousness is what you should contend.

– Sin is not just what you play but what you will later pay.

– Sin is where you’ve been but it is not where you want to end.

– Sin will cause a painful delay when you refuse to obey what God has to say. (Jonah)

-Sin wants to stay when you know that’s not God’s way.

– If you’re following sin, get out of line because it will cost you a great fine.

– If you’re looking for a bright future, don’t let sin be your sign to cause you to go blind.

– Sin is never kind because in the end it will get you entwined.

– Don’t let sin control your mind, but say: “Satan, get you behind!”

– Don’t be intoxicated with wine and confess you are on God’s vine.

-You don’t have to be Albert Einstein to know when you’re out of line.

– So leave sin behind and eternal life is what you will find.

– The wages of sin is death and it will rob you of your last breath. (Romans 6:23)

(You can work for sin, but it is a cruel master. It pays you wages that is called death i.e. eternal separation from God.) So, why not receive the gift of eternal life to all those who  receive SAFS instructions?
