EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TEXT: TITUS 2:11-12
11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Key verse: Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
If your car has no engine, how far can you go? The common denominator of the
gospel message is holiness. Whichever church you belong to; without holiness no
man shall see the Lord. Therefore, the gospel message simply talks about the holy
God, who lives in a holy heaven, and sent His holy Son, Jesus Christ to the world,
to redeem men from sin and death and make them holy, so that He may take them to
His holy heaven, to live with the holy God forever. Holiness is what makes you a
true Christian. The central message of the gospel is holiness.
Don’t be deceived by tricks of; “Fall down and die, let my enemy die.” Are you
aware you may be your number one enemy? If God answers that kind of prayer,
nobody will go to heaven because we were all enemies to God or somebody in the
past. Rather, make sure that your prayer has holiness as the focus because without
holiness no man shall see the Lord. When you hear some churches say, “We
specialize on deliverance” or “Ours is prosperity,” what is the value of prosperity
without holiness? If your church does not know or preach holiness you are lost.
That school will never pass its GCE exams because they are off syllabus. Understand
this truth before you die, otherwise you will die and be cursing some people in hell.
Confessing Jesus is the first step in the Christian race but it is not the end of the race.
Salvation is not a one-off affair. Initial salvation you receive when you give your life
to Christ is not the same thing as the final salvation you receive when you die in
Christ. What will keep you going to the end is living in complete obedience to the
word of God, which is holiness. It will guarantee your entry into heaven with Christ.
Thought for the day: Christianity without holiness is a bride without wedding gown
Song for the day: Holiness is the beauty of the believers; Lord I want to be holy …
Bible reading for the day: Ecclesiastes 1-3; 2 Corinthians 9
