MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 27TH APRIL 2021 OUTLINE
“Where is your brother, Abel?” God probingly asked. Cain answered “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” It was a haunting question from God. God asked again, “What have you done? Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” The story of Cain and Abel are often considered as the first story on how it is important to be our brother’s keeper. God wants us to take care of our siblings.
In the case of Cain and Abel, it is only the two of them, yet the world doesn’t seem to be big enough for them to live together peacefully. Being your brother’s keeper is taking care of your siblings, extended family members and others that are related to you by faith. You must be interested in their affairs. Help them in their studies, help them to make choices in their education, career, chores and their future. Most importantly, help them to learn more about God.
Being our brother’s keeper is the privilege that comes from the law of love and the Lord of love. It is the responsibility that emerges from gratitude to the Saviour who held nothing back in loving the world. Parents need to know that this is about forgiveness, redemption and sacrifice. In most families, there are rivalries and conflicts. You may grow up in the same household and become enemies.
There are many reasons why we should become our brother’s keeper. As a believer, you must share genuine love and respect. Your siblings may not deserve your generosity, they still need your help. Give a helping hand. We read about the story of the prodigal son. He wasn’t guided by his father nor brother. There was a vacuum in his life. His brother did not extend the hand of love to him, even after he left home.
Many have gone astray like that. Beloved, be your brother’s keeper.
Memory Verse: Prov. 17:25 – “A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.”
Motivational Quote: When your brother falls, pick him up without hesitation.
Prophetic Word: The spirit of Cain will not enter into your life, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: I Have Found A Friend In Jesus
1. I have found a friend in Jesus, He’s every thing to me,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay,
He tells me every care on Him to roll: He’s the
Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
2. He all my griefs has ta ken, and all my sorrows borne;
In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tower;
I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart, and now He keeps me by His power.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal: He’s the
1. Every seed of hatred in my life die, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every seed of unforgiveness in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord, help me to rewrite the history of my family, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every weapon of backwardness in my family line, back fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. I shall be a blessing to my generation, in the name of Jesus.
6. I shall not be a misfired arrow in the hand of my creator, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord, help me to be a better person, in the name of Jesus.
