MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 9 September 2019
Today’s Scripture pictures Christ speaking to His disciples after he had met the needs of the multitudes who came after him seeking for miracles. He set down the principles and ethics of the Kingdom to His disciples who were not merely after meat and drink but after heavenly treasures.
In the preceding chapters, Christ had shown Himself as Friend of all, humble and meek. One who had not come to condemn sinners to damnation but a present help in times of trouble. He proved Himself worthy of emulation at all times despite the persecutions and denials. This model of life was what He expected His disciples to follow. A true follower of Christ is to be a branch of the true Vine. His fruit must not betray the tree that bear it. Obedience as well as followership makes a believer rooted in Christ against all storms of life.
- TODAY: DCLM DAILY MANNA 9 SEPTEMBER 2019
If we say we are Christians, we are expected to show forth Christlikeness. True love personified by Christ is expected of us. As believers, we do not judge nor condemn sinners. Forgiveness and transparency should be our lifestyle. Every believer is supposed to bring forth the fruit of the Spirit. The components of the fruit as summarised in Galatians 5:22 are to be evident in our lives.
We are to be obedient to the Master if indeed we are His disciples as He was obedient to the Father. We cannot do less than what Christ stands for. Being obedient as He was, is what establishes the fact that we are loyal to Him and that is the only prerequisite for sticking to Him. That way, we are anchored on Him in the severest of storms.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A tree is known by its fruit.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 107-109
