DCLM Daily Manna 14th July 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: The Everlasting Sacrifice

Bible Text: Numbers 15:22-29
Key Verse: “All the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD…” (Numbers 15:24).

Message: God’s requirement for His children is that they remain holy in order to praise Him. They are peculiar partakers of indescribable heavenly blessings; therefore, they must walk with Him in holiness, truth and with a clear conscience.

The text opens with an instruction to Moses concerning the children of Israel. He emphasised that this practice was to be a habitual thanksgiving for every blessing of the land. The obvious reason is to acknowledge that it is the Lord that gives the power to get wealth. It is also a pathway for further blessings:

“Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine” (Proverbs 3:9,10).

The expectation of God is that we do His will in giving thanks for His favours. The disposition of a Christian when he falls into sin inadvertently should also be considered. The Lord made a provision for the children of Israel who sinned through ignorance to be forgiven through a set of offerings that should be made by the priest for atonement (Numbers 15:22-26).

Similarly, Jesus has made the sacrifice for our sins and is ever ready to forgive and cleanse us, provided we repent and turn from the sinful lifestyle. However, a true believer does not readily fall into sin with an expectation that forgiveness will always be given at his whims.

To despise God’s grace deliberately is to court the ire of His judgment. Forgiveness is hardly granted those who sin wilfully and tramples wantonly upon the blood of the everlasting sacrifice.

Thought for the Day: Nothing else, but the blood of Jesus atones for sins.

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

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.
