DCLM Daily Manna 17 August 2018 by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi
TOPIC: Same As The Beginning
BIBLE TEXT: JOHN 15:18-27
KEY VERSE: “And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning”
MESSAGE: God has not changed the way employed to raise the Church from a small beginning to a mighty one. He called weaklings to be an impregnable Church that has withstood the most powerful forces mankind has seen. He used fleeing Moses to confront Pharaoh. He called herdsmen and simple men and women to record His laws. Finally, He opted for a carpenter and a peasant lady to raise His Son, Jesus Christ. Christ Himself brought together a group of unlearned and ignorant men to “go… into all the world, and preach”.
When Christ entreated for His disciples shortly before concluding His earthly work, it was a prophetic prayer: “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word”. Since then, faithful Christians who believed Jesus through the disciples’ word have functioned in the power of that prayer. God uses ordinary people to do His extraordinary work, the same way He did it in the Old Testament and in the early Church. When Jesus told His disciples that they “also shall bear witness”, He was looking at both the disciples and contempoary Christians to get the work done. He expects us all in our little corner to go about God’s business everywhere we find souls through any means.
To do this great work, the presence of the Comforter is available to support and assure us of success. There will be revival and a repeat of the old-time movement of great crowds turning to Christ from sin and Satan if ordinary men and women do this extraordinary work for the Lord.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Preaching is an extraordinary business by ordinary people.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Jeremiah 35-37
