Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 15 February 2020 – Called To Be Different
TOPIC: Called To Be Different
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:17-24
DAILY QUOTE: “Having the answers is not essential to living. What is essential is the sense of God’s presence during dark seasons of questioning.”— Ravi Zacharias
TODAY’S MESSAGE: Becoming a Christian or having a true association with Christ entails deserting every old life of sin. Our text tells us that the thoughts of the gentiles (unbelievers) are futile, their understanding darkened and their living separated from God. They have lost all sensitivity of God and spiritual things, thereby becoming carnal in their living.
Ponder a minute: What influences your judgments?Where do you spend your time?On what do you spend your strength, money and wealth? Do you focus on material gains, vengeance, sectionalismand fleshly desires or do you meditate on fulfilling God’s purpose – mercy, loveand godliness?
Now judge within yourself, are you a church goer (unbeliever)?Are you really different from the world?
Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 15 February 2020 – A Christian business man once told me of a colleague who, wanting to avoid being regarded as one of the evil men in society, decided to join a church. He happily invited him to join his church, but before he met him again, he had joined another church which people advised him would hide his evil ways.
If you are called to be a Christian, put off your old self, and put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father please help me to live a life that will make me different from the world. Amen
