DCLM Daily Manna 12 July 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: What Do You Treasure?

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 13:44-52

KEY VERSE: “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field” (Matthew 13:44).

MESSAGE: The quantum and quality of resources a person invests in his quest for a prize determines how he values the goal. If the goal is a priceless treasure, he pumps in all his time, energy, skill, money and other materials needed to achieve his ambition. Less cherished purpose does not merit much attention.

The lessons from the parable in the text teach us that the vicarious death of Jesus for the salvation of mankind is an investment which portrays Him as a wise spiritual Entrepreneur desirous of harvesting souls in line with the promise of the Father (PSALMS 2:8). This lesson is similar to a corn of wheat in John 12:24, which cannot bring forth fruit unless it invests itself by being sown in the ground dies, germinates, grows, and buds. Life in the Kingdom is all about sacrifice to “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

Genuine believers follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ by investing their resources in Kingdom work. There is reward beyond what the world offers. Which is better? The short-lived reward from service to mortal man or the everlasting reward God gives to those who spend for the furtherance of the gospel? The choice is yours to make.

Even so, a saint renders services to Christ not for any tangible or intangible rewards. He serves Him as a token of appreciation for his salvation and as an acknowledgement of being privileged to be a witness for Christ: an unconditional service to the Master in the instinctive response by he who has profited from Christ’s reservoir of grace.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 – Just Recompense written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: Just Recompense

TEXT: ISAIAH 24:1-23

KEY VERSE: “The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant”  – (Isaiah 24:5).

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 MESSAGE: God is just. He rewards piety, faithfulness, dedication, commitment and righteousness. In His faithfulness, He does not spare the unrepentant sinner, the unrighteous, the wicked and all who repay kindness with evil and wickedness.

God’s indignation and fearful judgment is always towards the ungrateful: the rich, poor, freemen, bondmen, educated, illiterate, religious and irreligious “because they have transgressed the laws, changed ordinance and broken the everlasting covenant”. Every unrighteousness is sin. God is not a respecter of person or nation. “The wicked shall be turned into hell; and all the nations that forget God” (Psalms 9:17).

God’s severe judgment is hanging on the neck of all who defy Him in spite of His goodness, mercies and loving kindness to them. Surely, He is good to all and in His magnanimity, He has endowed both man and land with rich deposit of His goodness. All those who therefore dare God and use what He has given to them – material wealth, mineral resources, intellect, wisdom, knowledge, positions – in ways that desecrate His name and promote ungodliness are courting His fierce judgment.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18 December 2018 – Just Recompense written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Every human being is a free moral agent. God gave all liberty to use whatever He has given to us, including our life, in the way we choose. Our response to God’s unquantifiable kindness will determine the kind of reward we should expect from Him now and in eternity. However, God’s anger and indignation can be avoided by turning from all wicked ways, repenting from all known sins and turning to God through Jesus Christ.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What a man decides ultimately determines his destiny.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 – The Power of Faith by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

TOPIC: The Power Of Faith

TEXT: MARK 9:14-29

KEY VERSE: “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”
(Mark 9:23).

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 MESSAGE:

A small child named Thomas A. Edison came home with a letter from school. The content of the letter was: “Your son is mentally deficient; we cannot let him attend our school anymore. He is expelled”. Edison’s mother’s eyes welled with tears as she said aloud positively, “Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have good enough teachers to train him…” The mother took up the tutoring of Thomas effectively and successfully until she fell ill and passed on. Many years after Edison’s mother died, he became one of the greatest inventors of the century. Edison was a mentally deficient child, whose mother turned him into the genius of the century. Faith produces something from nothing. DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018

In our passage, Jesus upbraided His disciples for their inability to heal an epileptic child brought to them. He described their failure as resulting from their lack of faith. Faith in God’s promises and faithfulness changes situations and circumstances.

Nothing is impossible for a man or woman of faith. Whoever exercises faith always dwells in the realm of the supernatural. He visualises God’s unlimited supply, unquestionable authority over circumstances, unrestrained power over nature and His control over all issues. If prayer is the “staff” with which a Christian walks with God, then faith is the “key” to open God’s treasure-store.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 17 December 2018 – The Power of Faith written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

Without faith, we cannot attain to His presence or obtain anything from Him. How rich are you in faith? Build up your faith and experience victory and rest on all sides.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Through faith, you can both save yourself and others.
