MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE, MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL, MONDAY 31 MAY 2021

TOPIC FOR TODAY, MONDAY 31:5:2: Christian virtue

By Dr D.K Olukoya General Overseer MFM worldwide

  

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Prov 4, Prov 5,Prov 6

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Micah 6:6-8

MEMORY VERSE: 2 Tim. 2:19 

 “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: The enemies may scheme to pull you down but the purpose of God for your life shall stand.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: Every evil power assigned to pull you from the way of salvation shall fail, in the name of Jesus.

God knows His children by the way they live in this ever-changing world. The world you live in today is like sinking sand. Men who do not have their orientation in God will continue to shift their allegiance and commitment in line with this unstable world. This is not so with God and those who truly follow and worship Him. God hates instability.

His standard for following Him will never shift. Steadfastness is an important attribute of God and a great Christian virtue. A virtue is a moral trait in someone that generally leads to an acceptable behaviour or conduct. A Christian virtue then is a Bible-based mode of conduct that pleases God. It entails knowing what is good, doing it and avoiding what is wrong.

In walking before God, you must understand that He is not interested in sacrifices of offerings, tithes, praises, and so on that have no conviction of obedience to His word. With God, there is no alternative mode of behaviour except what will send a pleasant aroma to His holy nostrils.

These are the things He has shown you: purity, love, humility, self-control, faith, courage, mercy, forgiveness, truth, being generous when there is a time of need. These are some of the biblical definitions of Christian virtues. Every Christian who has heaven in focus must be defined by these emblems.


Beloved, I advise you to examine yourself and see if you are still in faith. Regular self-examination will help everyone of us in the race of salvation and eternity. We must not be complacent. We must keep improving on our Christian values and make becoming like Christ our highest priority.

This will make it difficult for the enemy to distract or discourage us in the race. I pray that you will finish strong and finish well, in the name of Jesus.

PRAYER POINTS:

1. I reject bewitched choices in my life, in the name of Jesus

SPECIAL NOTE:

Beloved Reader, the sweetest way to enjoy all-round blessings from God in this Year 2021 is to make Jesus Christ your personal Lord & Saviour.  Remember! the Lord Jesus in John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye are born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”


If you are ready to give your life to Christ Jesus, please pray the displayed prayer below in faith:

Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all my sin. Give me grace to go and sin no more. I invite You, come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.

Beware! this period we are in today is fulfilling this saying of Jesus Christ:
“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold,” Matt 24:12.
Our prayer for all of us is: any power, any problem that will quench our love for God and His unfailing Word, Holy Ghost Fire will destroy and flush them away.


Good Day Beloved, Thank you for your patient with us. Thank you for all your comments, observations, feedbacks and time spent on this platform. We cherish your presence here.

Beloved! We are in perilous time when kidnappings, banditry and other vices have become daily occurrences. But the Lord is saying, do not be afraid! Be strong in the Lord! Be bold & be courageous! They will be defeated with prayer, because the God that answers prayer with signs & wonders is still alive.

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, & by the power in the Blood of Jesus, in this year 2021, you will never be a victim to whatever calamity, affliction, or tragedies
flying around in the name of Jesus, Amen!


Shalom!
