TEXT: ROMANS 6: 11-14
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Key Verse: Galatians 2: 20. “I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”.
The just shall make progress in life and ministry by faith. Apostle Paul demonstrated this clearly. His eyes were on Jesus. He was moving in line with the heavenly vision given to him by Jesus.
He saw Jesus moving him to a higher ground in life and ministry. Have you been called into ministry by Jesus? He is beckoning you to follow him by faith for him to take you to a higher ground. There is a higher ground than where you are now that God wants to take you to. But God requires your unwavering dependence on him to do it. Believe God and your life and ministry will experience a positive change. Life will be better and sweeter as you believe and follow the Living God.
In any generation, circumstance and environment, one can be just and live righteously, joyfully and peacefully through faith in God. There is no kingdom as corrupt as the kingdom of Babylon; yet Daniel lived righteously there. There is no circumstance, or temptation in your life that is beyond your ability to handle. In that your temptation, the Lord has already made a way of escape for you. If you are overcome in that temptation, don't blame God on the temptation, blame yourself. The power to overcome has been released upon you but you refused to make use of it against that temptation. You ignored the timely help of God. You have yourself to blame. Let the just look up to God and the grace to live the righteous life will be poured upon him.
Thought for the day:
The just shall live by faith.
Song for the day:
Holiness unto the Lord is our watchword and song.
Bible reading for the day:
2 Chronicles 23-25; John 16:16-33
