Driving belt for today’s sermon :


You may be in the church yet ungodly. Use this message to review what you do in the church, where you  worship. It is not church, but God the Almighty.

He says to us ” Be ye holy for I Your God am holy.” (Leviticus 19 : 2).

Who are the ungodly?

Attributes :

16:27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. (Proverbs16 : 27)

19:28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity. (Proverbs 19 : 28).

The ungodly  abound in the areas of false witnessing and looking for ways of bringing up matters that will create trouble.

**What makes a man ungodly is   not fearing God in his  heart and in his  activities.**

The ungodly does not mean one who has no god or belongs to no Church or not worshipping one.  The ungodly does not worship the Almighty God. The ungodly worships something, you can ask them.

He begins each day with an idol in his way.

There are many gods on earth but there is only one Supreme God, who is the creator of man and founder of the universe.

The man who follows the Supreme God is righteous and lives a life of holiness. Such a person is Godly.

Those who do not fear the Lord God, follow after a multitude of gods and their ways are evil. Such are the ungodly.

In summary: “the ungodly will not stand in the congregation of the righteous.”

Read the following scriptures, about ungodly people.

1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psalm1: 1 – 6).

People who do not delight in the counsel,  or  in the wisdom of the ungodly people  live in obeyng the commandment of the Lord and shall prosper in their ways. The summary is that the ungodly shall not stand in the congregation and their ways shall perish.

What is then is “congregation”?

We have the congregation of the righteous.

We also have the congregation of sinners.

A congregation is a gathering of people living in agreement to a way of life physical or spiritual. Those who obey God are in the congregation of the righteous.

Extract from Google :

Views concerning the congregation :

(1) a group of people assembled for religious worship.

“the singing of psalms by the whole congregation”

synonyms: parishioners, parish, churchgoers, flock, fold, faithful, following, followers, adherents, believers, loyal members, fellowship, communicants, laity, brethren, brothers and sisters, souls

(2) a gathering or collection of people, animals, or things.

“large congregations of birds may cause public harm”

synonyms: gathering, assembly, flock, swarm, bevy, herd, pack, group, body, crowd, mass, multitude, horde, host, mob, turnout, throng, company, rally, convocation, congress, council, conclave, synod, assemblage, get-together, conventicle

(3),(in the Roman Catholic Church) a permanent committee of the College of Cardinals.

“the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith”

(4) a group of people obeying a common religious rule but under less solemn vows than members of the older religious orders.


The congregation that does the right thing before God is a congregation of the righteous.

The ungodly are in the congregation of sinners and their ways shall perish.

Ungodly people will have their final residence in hell. We are therefore encouraged to live a godly life.


(1) Anywhere we  go,  play a godly role.

(2) Whatever you do, keep righteousness in it.

(3) In judgement be fair to all the parties

(4) In love, keep agape in your forefront.

(5) In worship keep the  Almighty God alone and you will not fail.

When you do these and more, your ways will not perish, but the ways of the ungodly will perish.


In all let us note there is  heaven and hell and what separates people in these  two places is  Godliness and ungodliness.

THEREFORE, you have the right to choose to be righteous or unrighteous and by so doing you have chosen heaven or hell.



Lord God, I want  above all things, to be in the congregation of the Godly.  Lord , in the  congregation I belong, give me the will power to be on the Your  side.

I do not wish even  my enemy to go to hell, because  it is the most horrible place to go to.

DELIVER my enemies from hell by turning them to Yourself, Lord.

Some want to see before they make a choice.

Do not  allow me oh! Lord, to be in the wrong mind concerning heaven and hell, because both are real places in eternity.

Save us oh! Lord.
