DCLM Daily Manna 1 March 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: A Needless Fury

Bible Text: 2 Samuel 13: 21-39

Key Verse: “Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon’s heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant” (2 Samuel 13:28).

Message: The display of anger is a matter of choice. Hence, hardly would a sane person choose to be angry. Many people justify their acts of anger, cruelty and extreme wickedness on provocation; yet anger, no matter the cause, rests in the bosom of fools.

DCLM Daily Manna 1 March 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Tamar’s rape by her half brother, Amnon, was bad enough and caused King David to grieve. But Absalom, Tamar’s elder brother, bottled his anger over the horrible act for two years. He organised an event to schematically murder Amnon.

Regardless of the gravity of Amnon’s offence, it was not in anyone’s place to avenge an act of sin, cruelty or wickedness. The Bible clearly warns against revenge. For believers under the New Covenant, with Christ as the Mediator, any act of vengeance is a sin. Even under the Old Covenant, murder was forbidden, for he that kills by the sword shall also die by the sword.

DCLM Daily Manna 1 March 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Absalom should have confronted his brother over the sin he had committed rather than nurse the revenge for two years. King David, being a man of weak moral credentials, failed in respect of Amnon, although he was a successful king and military ruler. We are to guard against unbridled, inveterate anger, no matter the gravity of the offence. DCLM Daily Manna 1 March 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” (Romans 12:19). Saved from sin, you must thirst and pray through for sanctification experience to receive the grace to be uplifted beyond negative emotional outpouring.

Thought for the day: He who avenges does more harm.

Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018 – Steadfast Love

Memorize: Your steadfast love, O Lord, is as great as all the heavens . . .  —Psalm 36:5 (TLB)

Young people talk a lot about love. Most of their songs are about love. . . . “The supreme happiness of life,” Victor Hugo said long ago, “is the conviction that we are loved.” “Love is the first requirement for mental health,” declared Sigmund Freud. The Bible teaches that “God is love” and that God loves you. Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

To realize that is of paramount importance. Nothing else matters so much. And loving you, God has a wonderful plan for your life. Who else could plan and guide your life so well?

What is real love? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day Billy Graham Daily Devotion 10 December 2018

In knowing I am loved by You, almighty God, my heart trusts You to guide me.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus

TOPIC: The Kingdom In Focus

TEXT: Romans 14:10-22

KEY VERSE: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” – (Romans 14:17).

MESSAGEDCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional:

Have you got faith? “…Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth” (Romans 14:22).

Martin Luther King Jr. once said ‘Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if the wellbeing of a person or animal is at stake; society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way’. The Christian church is uncompromising in its stand against all kinds of conduct opposed to scriptural standards.

Our text deals with issues that bother on the believer’s understanding of true Christlikeness, holiness, fruitfulness, doctrine and morals. This involves a sincere rebuking, correcting and evaluation of one another where necessary in love and humility and the exercise of church discipline on erring members and leaders.

DCLM Daily Manna 10 December 2018 Devotional – The Kingdom In Focus by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Believers should refrain from judging one another. Christ our Lord is the One who has the right to judge. We must avoid anything that constitutes a stumbling block to fellow believers especially the weak ones. As believers, whether we are strong or weak, we must realise that true liberty does not lie in the exercise of that liberty if it will disrupt the peace of the body of Christ, knowing that the highest good is only attained in its use to edify the church.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Use not your liberty as a cloak of maliciousness.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Romans 11-13
