DCLM Daily Manna 19 February 2018 Devotional

Topic: Right Conduct Before God

Bible Text: 1 Timothy 2:9-15

Key Verse: “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array” (1 Timothy 2:9).

Sometimes, we act as if we know how best to worship God acceptably, and even set up such pattern thereby throwing away what He has prescribed. We assure ourselves that we are acting in good conscience, that our intentions are noble, and therefore, expect that God will accept our way, and disregard His just and Holy standard. DCLM Daily Manna 19 February 2018 Devotional. You may win wide applause for such actions but remember, that “which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God”.

Some women in the church in Ephesus had somehow chosen to comport themselves in ways that Paul the apostle considered inappropriate and unacceptable. They thought that they would influence their unbelieving husbands to accept Jesus Christ and gain respect in the community through their appearance. In the process, they misplaced the priorities set by God who value Christ-like character far more than outward beauty. DCLM Daily Manna 19 February 2018 Devotional. They were not grounded in the doctrine of Christ; as such, they became easy preys to false teachers who prioritise on the outward appearance over the inner spiritual experience.

The Apostle’s instructions here deal with specific problems in the Ephesian church or churches in similar situation. He counselled them to adorn a meek, quiet, gentle, modest and loving character and not the loud display of jewellery, cosmetics and fashion.

DCLM Daily Manna 18 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi…

God expects us to worship Him in holiness and sobriety. There is no room for frivolity or disorderliness. We must patiently and quietly imbibe the word of God than rush to speak and teach in church. For our worship to be acceptable to God, we must shun anything that could draw attention away from Him.

Thought for the day: In worship, do all things decently and orderly.

Billy Graham Devotion 15 December 2018 - Not Too Young

Billy Graham Devotion 15 December 2018 – Not Too Young

Memorize: Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers . . .  — 1 Timothy 4:12
Lord Chesterton once said, “I believe in bedside repentance, but I do not want to depend upon it.” During a serious illness a person’s mind does not function normally. Getting right with God is something one should do in the bloom of health. However, as far as the Lord is concerned, “His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, nor His arm shortened that He cannot save.” He loves us equally, in sickness or in health; while we are living, or while we are dying.

In my experience, I have not known of too many people who found Christ on their deathbed. When we come to Christ in our youth, a life is saved. When we come in old age, a soul is salvaged and life eternal is assured; but the opportunity to live a life for Christ has been lost.

Billy Graham Devotion 15 December 2018 – Not Too Young

Billy Graham preaches youth can turn the world upside down for Christ.

Prayer for the day (Billy Graham Devotion 15 December 2018)

Lord God, burden my heart to reach out to the young persons starting their adventure in life—and the old persons dreading the end of their journey. Let me tell them the message of Your saving love.

Kenneth Copeland 15 December 2018 – A Carefree Christmas

Memorize: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. – Philippians 4:6

Can you really have a merry Christmas even when you have a thousand and one pressures bearing down on you? Yes, you can—and you don’t have to leave the country to do it. No matter how intense or how trivial the problems are that you’re facing right now, you can have the most wonderful, most carefree Christmas season you’ve ever had in your life; and you can start having it today. Kenneth Copeland 15 December 2018

As a believer, you’re probably familiar with that scripture that says to be anxious for nothing. But, have you ever taken it seriously enough to put it into action? There’s a good chance you haven’t because you haven’t understood just how dangerous those anxieties are. You probably haven’t realized that they’re a deadly part of the devil’s strategy against you.

Kenneth Copeland 15 December 2018 – A Carefree Christmas

That’s right. Worry is one of the chief weapons of his warfare. If he can get you to worry about them, he can use the financial pressures and family pressures and scheduling problems that are just a “normal” part of everyday life to weigh you down and drag you into more trouble than you think possible.

Medical science tells us that a high percentage of the people hospitalized in the U.S.A. are there with ailments caused by worry and tension. Yet, a great many believers worry without even thinking about it. They’ll worry about being too short or too skinny. They’ll stew over this and that and not even realize they’ve been sinning.

“Sinning, Brother Copeland?”

Yes! For the born-again, Spirit-filled believer who owns a Bible—worrying is a sin. So, even if the Christmas cards are late and 45 people are coming to your house for Christmas dinner, don’t worry.

Instead, do what the Bible says to do. Pray, making your request known to God…and praise Him for the answer. Then you’ll have peace.

Now, go ahead and have a truly merry Christmas, you carefree thing you!
