MFM Daily Devotional 2 May 2021 – The Whole Duty Of Man

Read MFM Daily Devotional 2nd May 2021 Today Sunday written by Pastor D.K Olukoya. Remain blessed!


Fire Scripture: Ecclesiastes 12:13-14


The word “Christian” means to be Christlike. God has done His own duty through the redemption of man. The redeemed man or woman (a Christian) also owes God the duty to grow into the image of Christ (Hebrews 9:14). From our Fire Scripture for today (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14), the conclusion of the preacher is that the whole duty of a man is to fear God and obey his commandment. Solomon was an anointed king of Israel, a prophet of God. He was anointed by God to rule over Israel.

He can be described as that man that saw it all and had it all. He had fame, prosperity, power, riches, wisdom, yet he died an unfulfilled man. He discovered later in his life that the whole essence of living is to fear God and obey his commandment; hence his counsel in our text. To fear God means to reverence Him, to love Him, to have faith in Him and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and to keep His commandments and be obedient to His will.

This is the only thing that can make a man whole and perfect. Without the fear of God, man is nothing. Every child of God is chosen and called to follow Christ. We have been given all we need for life and godliness and have access to the riches of His grace. However, if the foundation of your life is not laid on the fear of God and obedience to His word, your life will become futile and your fellowship with God will not stand.

All the material possessions, intelligence, popularity or fame you have will be meaningless. The only thing that can give you fulfilment in this life and the life hereafter is to fear God and obey His commands. It would amount to sin if we fail to follow God’s word which is a revealer of God’s mind to us as recorded in Micah 6:8. Doing His will equals to reverencing Him, because you cannot obey and reverence who you have no regards for.

There is assurance of eternal life, strong confidence and divine security (Prov. 14:26-27). What could be richer than abundant life! May God humble our hearts to fulfil this one but all-encompassing duty to fear God! However, no man can fear God except by the help of the Holy Spirit. If you are not yet born again, surrender your heart today so that you can receive the presence of the Holy Spirit who alone can give you the grace and power to do so.

Memory Verse: Proverbs 19:23 – “The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.”

Motivational Quote: The fear of God is an antidote to a life of futility and vanity.

Prophetic Word: Receive the fear of God that makes the difference in a man’s life, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: The Comforter Has Come

1. O Spread the tidings ’round, Where ever man is found,
Where ever human hearts And human woes abound;
Let ev’ry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound;
The Comforter has come!

Holy Ghost from Heav’n,
The father’s promise giv’n;
O spread the tidings round, wherever man is found
The comforter has come

2. The long, long night is past, The morning breaks at last,
And hushed the dreadful wail And fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills the day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!

3. Lo, the great King of kings, With healing in His wings,
To ev’ry captive soul a full deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!

1. Father, teach me to walk in Your fear, in the name of Jesus.
2. Let the fear of God be the foundation of my decision in life, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, help to yield myself as a servant to obey Your word, in the name of Jesus.

4. My Father, let the Spirit of fear of God be activated in my life afresh, in the name of Jesus.
5. Lord, let every part of my being come in subj e c tion to the obedience of God, in the name of Jesus.
6. My Father, reveal to me any area of my life where my obedience is yet to be complete, in the name of Jesus.
7. Father, grant me the courage to obey You, no matter how difficult, in the name of Jesus.
