OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: MONDAY 10TH JANUARY 2022.

THEME: THE PRICE OF COMMITMENT.

MEMORISE:

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23

READ: Matthew 22:35-40

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

MESSAGE:

A brother was discussing with me about how he had decided to be very committed to Kingdom work. I knew he was just probably trying to impress me, so I set a little test to see how serious he was in his commitment to Kingdom business. I told him the church would need his car for an outreach the next Monday. He protested immediately, saying that he would also need it to transport himself to work. I then told him that he had no idea what total commitment to God and His Kingdom’s business was. It was then I pointed out to him that we had already made provision for all the vehicles we would need for the outreach. I told him further that I had just wanted to test the genuineness of his claim of commitment to God.

In our Bible reading today, our Lord Jesus Christ based our commitment as His disciples on a great pillar called love-love for our Father in heaven and love for our neighbors. Our commitment to love goes a long way to fulfil the eternal and universal law. Love is however, so costly that even our Father in heaven paid a great price to demonstrate it to the whole world for the purpose of our salvation.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

In the same vein, when we are committed to loving our neighbors, many things will happen positively in our world. Firstly, keeping the commandments of God would be very easy. Our love for God will make us refrain from annoying Him through sin. David wrote: “ I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.” (Psalm 119:101). Holiness is the price we all must pay to be a part of Kingdom of God. Furthermore, our commitment to holiness may be very costly as we must be ready to pay the price of persecution according to 2 Timothy 3:12. To be a disciple and a friend of Jesus for that matter demands a price, according to Mark 10:30. Beloved, are you committed to soul-winning, giving to Kingdom projects and godliness? I congratulate you if you are because you will not miss your reward, in the name of Jesus.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, please help me to increase my commitment to godliness and kingdom projects, in Jesus’ name.

HYMN 1: ALL TO JESUS I SURRENDER.

1. All to Jesus I surrender,
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.

o Refrain:
I surrender all,
I surrender all;
All to Thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

2. All to Jesus I surrender,
Humbly at His feet I bow;
Worldly pleasures all forsaken,
Take me, Jesus, take me now.

3. All to Jesus I surrender,
Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;
Let me feel the Holy Spirit,
Truly know that Thou art mine.

4. All to Jesus I surrender,
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power,
Let Thy blessing fall on me.

5. All to Jesus I surrender,
Now I feel the sacred flame;
Oh, the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to His Name!

Prayer of surrender to JESUS / Gi livet ditt til JESUS nå

Lord Jesus, 

Kjære Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner ,

Jeg vet at jeg er en synder,

I confess my sins before you today 

Jeg ber om tilgivelse for mine synder idag, 

I believe that you died on the cross and rose up on the third day,

Jeg tror på at du døde på korset og stod opp på den tredje dagen

Dear Jesus, I need your forgiveness right now 

Kjære Jesus, jeg trenger din tilgivelse nå

I am not perfect and I cannot do it on my own 

Jeg er ikke perfekt og kan ikke gjøre det på egenhånd

Please dear Jesus come into my heart 

Kjære Jesus kom inn til mitt hjerte

I surrender my life to you 

Jeg gir livet mitt til deg

Help me to live for you as from today

Hjelp meg å leve for deg fra idag.

Please forgive me, change my life & show me how to know You in Jesus precious name . Amen

Tilgi meg, gjør livet mitt bedre & hvis meg hvordan å kjenne deg i Jesus Kristus navn. Amen

Johannes 3: 15 - 21

15 For at hver den som tror på ham, skal ha evig liv. 16 For så høyt har Gud elsket verden at han ga sin Sønn, den enbårne, for at hver den som tror på ham, ikke skal gå fortapt, men ha evig liv. 17  Gud sendte ikke sin Sønn til verden for å dømme verden, men for at verden skulle bli frelst ved ham. 18 Den som tror på ham, blir ikke dømt. Den som ikke tror, er allerede dømt fordi han ikke har trodd på Guds enbårne Sønns navn. 19 Og dette er dommen: Lyset er kommet til verden, men menneskene elsket mørket høyere enn lyset fordi deres gjerninger var onde. 20 For den som gjør det onde, hater lyset og kommer ikke til lyset, for at hans gjerninger ikke skal bli avslørt. 21 Men den som følger sannheten, kommer til lyset, så det skal bli klart at hans gjerninger er gjort i Gud.»

Matteus 16:

 

18: Og jeg sier deg: Du er Peter, og på denne klippen vil jeg bygge min kirke, og dødsrikets porter skal ikke få makt over den.

18 Dere skal ikke minnes de første ting, ikke tenke på det som hendte før.
          
19 Se, jeg gjør noe nytt. Nå spirer det fram. Merker dere det ikke? Ja, jeg legger vei i ørkenen, elver i ødemarken.
