OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA 8TH MARCH 2021 TODAY DEVOTIONAL
There is a popular axiom that seeing is believing. Many people prefer to see before making public pronouncements. This was corroborated by Alan Isaacson, a former English teacher in the rural northern part of Nigeria. He later became a full time mission educator, journalist and an adviser in Yorkshire. Many years ago, he heard something remarkable about the extraordinary growth of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria.
He eventually came to the country and visited many branches of the church to discover much more than what he was told. The queen of Sheba came to see for herself if everything she heard about King Solomon and his established kingdom was true. After asking the king series of questions and seeing his display of wisdom and abundance of riches, she became convinced and speechless.
She could no longer dispute what she had heard before coming to Israel. There was an agreement between what she heard and saw. It is not sufficient to hear about Jesus; nor is it enough to know that Christ is our Saviour and Redeemer. Personal encounter with Him through genuine repentance from all known sins offers peace and eternal life. His grace transforms our character and destiny when it comes to us.
The love of God finds ruined sinners and transgressors and transforms them into glorified saints. Christ is the wisdom of God and the Light of the world. Those who refuse to come to the Light to obtain salvation will eventually stumble and perish in darkness and deception. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the truest report that offers peace and pardon for a troubled soul. Those who turn to Him will be set free from the guilt of sin.
Thought For Today: The just shall live by faith and not by sight.
Bible In One Year: NUMBERS 3 – 4
