TREM Daily Devotional 8 February 2019 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo

Topic: It Is All About Jesus

Scripture: “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2 KJV

Message: In all that we do, if Jesus is not the focus, then we have lost it all. It is all about Jesus. Paul said he was determined not to know anything else, except Jesus, and Him crucified. This is the reason for life. As a matter of fact, the reason for the earth’s existence is Jesus. Oh yes, that is the reason. Forget anything else happening all over the world in different nations. The reason for this earth is Jesus. At the centre of it all, it is Jesus that I see.

In the book of Philippians 3:10, Paul said: “That I may know him” He said my greatest desire, hunger and passion is to know Jesus. Paul was a religious man that was passionate for God but yet ignorant. He was more concerned about his Torah and the rules and regulations that were handed down to him. He was concerned about what to do to earn God’s approval. Do this and God will do this for you. If you don’t do this, God won’t do this for you. That is all he learnt and he was sincere. And he pursued it passionately until one day on the road to Damascus, Jesus appeared to him. And He said to Paul, “it is not about what you do or what you don’t do. At the centre of it all, it is all about me. So it will be wrong for you to leave me and be pursuing shadows.”

When you travel outside the country or travel outside your matrimonial home, at times you take some photographs so you could look at your wife and your children while you are away. When you miss them, you could bring out the photograph. Now, would it not be stupid when you come back home and you are still looking at photographs when they are alive, right there with you? Jesus is the real thing! Every other thing is a shadow. May God enlighten you.
