WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL RECAP

“This is My commandment , that you love one another as I have loved you.” – John 15:12 NKJV

Welcome to the 13th weekly devotional recap of the year. This week, we learned about our forgiveness in Christ and how to put off the old man. We also learned to be faithful stewards of God’s will,  yield to His leading and sharpen one another. 

On Monday, we learned about yielding to God’s leading. The day we received the life of Christ, we stopped living for ourselves and opened ourselves up to the leading of the Spirit. Hence, our daily conduct and fervent devotion should reflect our trust and obedience to the divine leadership of Christ. Remember, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful (1 Corinthians 4: 2).

Tuesday’s article taught us to be faithful stewards of God. When we received God’s salvation through Jesus Christ, Jesus became our Lord. Henceforth, we ought to live our lives unto God and not ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15), faithfully deploying all our resources to serve His will (Matthew 25:14-31).

On Wednesday, we learned of the forgiveness we have in Jesus Christ. Jesus forgave our sins, purchased our freedom and brought us close to God by the shedding of His blood (Ephesians 1:7; 2:13). Unlike in the old days where the blood of lambs was slain every year for the forgiveness of sin, Jesus shed His blood once and for all for us (Colossians 1: 14). We have eternal forgiveness in Jesus Christ by the blood He shed for us on the cross.  Hallelujah!

On Thursday, we were instructed to sharpen one another (Proverbs 27: 17). As believers in Jesus, we are now members of the body of Christ, hence, we are not made to be alone. Our corporate fellowship with one another is a powerful means of strengthening, encouraging, and keeping accountable to one another (Acts 2: 42-47). By this, we weaken the devil’s power against us and strengthen our unity. 

Friday’s article urged believers to discard their old selves and embrace the new identity in Christ (Ephesians 4:22). We’re called to consciously release attitudes and desires tied to our former selves, recognising our spiritual death to that past life. Instead, we’re to embrace our new reality in Christ, striving for maturity with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Dear believer, rejoice for the forgiveness you have in Jesus Christ, for the privilege to live your life unto Him as a faithful steward who is yielded to His leading. Do not neglect our gathering unto one another for by this we are improved.

Enjoy your weekend.
