DAILY DEVOTIONAL: REMEMBER JESUS DIED FOR YOU.
TOPIC: REMEMBER JESUS DIED FOR YOU
Memorise: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 2 Corinthians 5:15 KJV
Read: 2 Corinthians 5:15-17 15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more. 17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
One eternal event you must remember on a daily basis is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This painful death of our dear Lord was actually for your redemption, forgiveness and prosperity. He died so you won’t need to die but live soberly to the glory of His name. He suffered, bled, died and was buried but he resurrected to bring you up to a point where the forces on the earth will have nothing with which they can harm you again. The journey to the cross was a mighty one all because the Lord wanted a channel of deliverance for you especially from the power of sin and iniquity and from the evil forces on the earth.
If there’s anything that can easily sink a man, it’s the venom of sin. May you acknowledge the work of grace that Jesus has done by surrendering your whole life unto Him. Daily as you live, the Lord wants you to breath the consciousness of the work he has done to redeem your soul from hell. You are no longer expected to remain the same if genuinely you have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You are now a new person. Old things especially your former manners of sin must pass away. God expects you to live a new life of worship, intimacy with Him and become a useful tool in His kingdom. These are signs that you remember how Jesus died for your sake. He wants you to live for him alone. This flesh profits nothing, it’s the Spirit of the Lord that quickens. Come closer to your Savior, run away from everything that this world is positioning to make you forget the love of God. Let your heart be renewed by His word and choose to follow Him the remaining days of your life. It shall be well with you.
Prayer Point: Father, I pray the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ will not be in vain over my life. Help me to remember your love on a daily basis and to live for your own glory.
