What Do You Watch And Play On TV?

What is on your TV? Would Jesus be ok with the things you watch and do on your TV? If not, then there is something very wrong with your purpose for it. My friends, if you are not using what you have to glorify God, then who else is being glorified instead? It is your own flesh, that is who. And because of this, we need to make sure that what we see and do doesn’t offend the Holy Spirit, and instead bring in demonic spirits into our homes. Now, so you can know if what you are watching is good or not, I have put together a list of bad things to not do and good things to do. These bad things include foul language, violence, horror, crude humor, immodest women or sex scenes (porn), homosexuality or gay pride, drugs, drinking, witchcraft or sorcery, aliens, and anything you would not wish your children or God to watch you see. Now, if you are thinking to yourself, man, that describes what I watch to the “T”, then you ought to repent and come to Jesus in your confessions. Now, this may make you wonder what is good to watch and play on TV. Those things are sports in moderation, instructional videos for work or home, documentaries, certain musicals and plays that are uplifting, orchestras, operas and other forms of wholesome music, sermons, Christian ministries, Bible-based movies and TV shows, shows that will help our children seek God first, and other forms of inspirational content that uplifts us to better our relationship with our spouse, children, and our walk with God.

These things I mentioned are good to watch on TV and will help you seek God first in your life, instead of what pleases the flesh. Jesus said, 1“seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) Please think about what was taught. You may have your own ideas on what to and not watch or play on TV, so please mention them in the comments field below. Use what I said as a guideline, but not the final verdict. I only mention the things above, because my life has been radically changed for God. My music choices have also been changed, according to God’s will. Where I now only prescribe to music with the following, instrumental, opera, Bible audio, Christian radio stations, Christian Music, uplifting music, and other forms of inspirational music. Because of the change with TV, I also do not wish to have any worldly music in my life anymore. So I read the lyrics of songs and only listen to things that help my walk with God. Therefore, please decide to cancel listening to other types of worldly music. Mind you, I am not perfect in what I say and do, so if there are other good choices of music for Christians, please mention these types of music in the comments field below.

My friends, if you decide today to seek God first, then your TV and music choices will change dramatically. This will intern point you to God, where you will have much more time to read the Bible, pray, and go out and serve God. You may have been tied down with things in life before, but this will open your life up to new possibilities in God’s kingdom. Even by seeking God first in your life, you will begin to gain different Spiritual gifts, where even some weaknesses will become your strengths when it comes to being used by God. Now, in all things, you have a choice to make. Do you wish to live out your life for the Lord or not? Everything I discussed in this message is important, but only important for people that are willing to lay down their life for Christ. If Jesus is not the center point of your life, then this will be hard to take in and accomplish. There will be struggles if God is not the one helping you accomplish your newfound goals in life. Think of what I mentioned above as more than a yearly resolution, but a new way of thinking, because you have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. You are now born again and can think and see things more clearly. God bless you.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that You will open people’s eyes to their sins and to confess their sins openly to You in prayer. Then, will they be desirous to do Your will instead. Too many people are focused on gratifying their own flesh, where Your will is being dishonored daily. People don’t even realize that their bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit, and if they do, they are mocking You in how they choose to live their lives If people are not seeking You in what they do and watch, then they ought to repent. I ask You, Lord, to wake people up to their sinful lifestyle. Help them realize that You can see and hear everything that is happening in their lives. So what they watch on TV, the computer, their phone or tablet, You can see it also. Even their music choices, You can hear it also. And if it is not uplifting and good for the Spirit of God, to dwell in then it is only leading them on a path of destruction. I am saddened to talk to many people that say they are Christians, but don’t give You much or any time during the day. Instead, they’d rather watch their favorite shows, movies, or play video games. It is like I have to remind people to seek You first in their lives, or else they forget. So it is my prayer that people no longer have to make it a goal to read the Bible daily or pray often, but to have this become a part of who they are for You. Surely, people either love You or they don’t. We cannot put on a certain face at church and a different one during the week. If we love and honor You, then our lives would be dedicated to follow You and to do as You say. This should motivate more and more people to get into the Word daily, that they may know what You desire for our lives now. We can think up things on our own, but if it is not Your will, then it is good for nothing. Lord, we need You to lead us and not our own selves. I believe in You. I love You. Amen.

Let us read the Bible:

Matthew 6
1Matthew 6 (KJV)
1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
