Fully Committed to Christ - Saturday's Dose - 21st October 2017

Today's Scripture

“I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him” - (Philippians 3:8-9).

Thoughts for Today

Until you develop a strong sense of conviction, you will not have the sure-footedness that is needed to be a follower of Christ. When faced with a crucial decision, you will be tempted to waver between right and wrong—what you know is godly and ungodly.

Those who are soft in their convictions often experience disappointment, doubt, and fear. When we are fully committed to Christ, we have a sure hope. However, when we allow temptations to lure us away from what we know is right, we miss God’s blessing.

The rich young ruler wanted to follow Jesus, yet his emotional attachment to earthly treasures kept him landlocked. He was not free to join those who were a part of Christ’s band of followers (Mark 10:17-23).

The apostle Paul did not have a problem with commitment or conviction. He gave his life to the Lord and in doing so left behind the very things this world deems as both impressive and valuable.

Paul had been a Pharisee—a man of social influence and position. He had been trained by one of the most eminent scholars of his day—Gamaliel, a member and former president of the Sanhedrin, the high council of Jews in Jerusalem. It was said that Gamaliel’s influence was so great that he was one of the only seven Jewish scholars who have been honored by the title “Rabban.”

None of this mattered to Paul. He had formed a strong conviction: “I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things” (Philippians 3:8).

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father,
I want to be able to say with Apostle Paul that the only thing I hold dear is Christ Jesus who lives inside of me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Conviction and Repentance - Friday's Dose - 20th October 2017

“Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” John 7:37-38.

Thoughts for Today

George Whitefield seemed to have no future. Born in England in 1714, he was the illegitimate son of an English barmaid. Yet something revolutionary happened when a minister directed him to these verses from John. When he read them, Whitefield cried out loud, “I thirst!” That thirst led to a life of ministry and service in which he preached throughout Britain and also visited America seven times.

Through his ministry, thousands of people realized that they, too, thirsted for God. In one 75-day period, Whitefield preached 175 times and traveled 800 miles.

With a voice that was described as “riveting,” he could be heard long distances away. His message was that everyone needed to be born again. He preached in meetinghouses, barns, fields, and from wagons.

After delivering his message, Whitefield would wait for the Holy Spirit to move. And the Spirit moved, time after time, bringing conviction and repentance as people cried out for God.

Whitefield was among the key figures in the “Wesleyan Revival” that swept England. His influence spread throughout society, even to political and business leaders. Lord Bolingbroke said that Whitehead was “the most extraordinary man of our times. He has the most commanding eloquence I ever heard in any person.” Benjamin Franklin described how “wonderful” it was “to see the change made by his preaching…From being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seemed as if the whole world were growing religious.”

And it all began because he thirsted for more.

In the same way, God is ready to flood your life with rivers of living water. Thirst for God and His Kingdom so He can use and bless you as never before.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
I thirst for You and Your Word. Open my life to Your truth, and may rivers of living water flow through me as never before. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
