DAILY DEVOTIONAL: HAVING GODLY AFFECTION
TOPIC: HAVING GODLY AFFECTION
Memorise: Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2 KJV
Read: Colossians 3:1-3 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
This generation is encumbered with load of distractions and this is one major reason there’s a sharp decline in spiritual fervency. The intensity of worship and holy service to God is dropping by the day because many folks in our generation are losing touch with the power and grace to concentrate on God and to focus on eternal life. Things and issues of life are now the trending force that drive so many against eternal pursuits. Let me remind you brethren, you are just a stranger here on earth and it’s only wise you shift your focus from everything that are in motion purposely to distract you from gaining eternal rest with God.
I want to believe you know what I’m talking about. Starting from the very hour you wake up till you find a place to rest at night, please review your activities and carefully separate from everything and anything that are not with eternal values. Beloved, the elements of distraction are so many and you will need grace to renounce their powers and effects over your soul.
You were bought and redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. You were saved to become a candidate of eternal life with God and a citizen of heaven. Concentrate on these things, think about them and pray them into your daily life. Our stay here is only temporal. We are on a journey to eternity and we must not allow any other thing(s) to take us away from the race to live with Christ and our heavenly Father. Old things must pass away. The new things that are demonic baits must not be embraced. Behold New life in Jesus must become your lifestyle especially now that the entire world is dancing around immorality and ungodliness. Let it be evident that you are not of this world but a pilgrim in motion. We must be consecrated and refined to make it to heaven at last. Social media won’t help you though you sit with it night and day. Take your Bible in your hands, study to know more about God. Be prayerful and attend fellowship meetings with brethren. Don’t be carried away, Jesus will soon be here. Be saved so you won’t be missing in the midst of the world’s helpless crowd.
Pray with me: Father, help me to concentrate on the reason why you saved me. Don’t allow me to be distracted from your ways in Jesus’ mighty name.
