Spiritual Digest for the Day 28Aug2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing” (1 Peter 3:9 NIV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY There should not be any reason whatsoever for cursing other people. Even when people do things that deserve your curse, bless them and leave room for God to judge. You are called to be a blessing to others. - Bayo Afolaranmi ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will not curse, but be a blessing to others, including even your enemies.

WHY WOULD YOU CURSE?

Dearly Beloved, WHY WOULD YOU CURSE? “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse” (Romans 12:14 NIV). “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing” (1 Peter 3:9 NIV). As I was sending out my usual prayer wishes for the beginning of the month by SMS early in the morning on the first day of this month, I received a call from an unknown person who was mad at me for sending an SMS to her mobile phone. In spite of introducing myself to her and explanation, she did not hesitate to rain curses on me because she received a prayer wish from an unknown person. Even my blessings to counter her curses could not stop her from the cursing. I later sent another SMS full of blessings to her, though she did not react to the second SMS. The incident made me to wonder: why would one curse another person? It is understandable (though, not advisable biblically) if one curses someone or something because of something bad that the person or thing has done, or something good that the person or thing did not do. However, to curse because of something good that comes from an unknown source is unimaginable to me. Many biblical injunctions teach against cursing, rather, they instruct that we should bless people, even people that do bad things to us (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:28; Romans 12:14, 19-21; 1 Thessalonians 5:15; 1 Peter 3:9). Jesus Christ and other early Christians exemplified this (see Luke 23:34; Acts 7:60; 1 Corinthians 4:12-13; 1 Peter 2:21-23). There should not be any reason whatsoever for cursing other people. Even when people do things that deserve your curse, bless them and leave room for God to judge (see Romans 12:19). You are called to be a blessing to others (1 Peter 2:21; 3:9). Why would you curse? In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Pray that you will not curse, but be a blessing to others, including even your enemies.

God will use your dark, lonely place of despair as a banner to write His love over your life! - John Patterson ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will experience God’s faithfulness in your dark and lonely place.

A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you - C. S. Lewis ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Lord, give me the spirit of humility to be able to know more of You.

WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE...

Dearly Beloved, WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE... “These things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1 NKJV). I have a specific purpose for creating and moderating most of my WhatsApp groups: to solely disseminate inspiring messages. I always frown at any post that is contrary to this and intermittently remind members of my WhatsApp groups (both privately and generally) about the primary purpose of the groups and warn to remove anyone who cannot abide by that purpose. On many occasions, I have removed people that violate that purpose no matter how good their posts are. There was a case sometimes ago that I had to remove one of the respected people in one of my groups because he advertised a religious event that he was planning to coordinate. Another respected person in the group contacted me privately and advocated for the removed person that I should reinstate him back to the group. I told the self-appointed “advocate” the reason why I took the action. He still pleaded that I should give the “offender” another chance. I did so because of his plea. Interestingly, the “offender” did not know about this advocacy. As I reflected on this scenario, my mind went to what Jesus Christ is doing for us presently with our heavenly Father. It is a fact that no one is sinless (see 1 John 1:8-10). So, Jesus Christ, having paid the price for the salvation of our souls on the cross (see 1 Peter 3:18), is now with the heavenly Father acting as an advocate who is pleading for everyone that has accepted Him before the Father (see also Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25). He is worthy to do this task because He is the only righteous One to do so. Human being cannot come to God for the forgiveness of sin with his/her own righteousness, not because of his righteousness “is like filthy rags” as some would erroneously quote Isaiah 64:4, but because he cannot boast in his works (see Ephesians 2:8-10). However, by grace based on the finished work of Jesus Christ, He is advocating for man with the Father. The implication of this is that man must accept the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross before he can be qualified to be among the “WE” that have Jesus Christ has the Advocate with the heavenly Father. “[Jesus Christ] came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:11-13 NKJV). However, this is not a license to habitual sinning because we cannot be in sin and expect that the grace of God should abound in us (see Romans 6:1-2). We have an Advocate.... Is Jesus Christ your Advocate with the heavenly Father? In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). NB If you can abide by the simple rule of my WhatsApp groups, you can contact me with your name on WhatsApp through +2348055159591 and ask me to add you to one of the groups. Thanks.

Nothing! - Author Unknown ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Help me, Lord, not to be holding grudges, but always forgive those that offend me.

Spiritual Digest for the Day 14Aug2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 NIV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY Spiritual growth is not an option for any serious Christian. There is nothing you can do to substitute your spiritual growth. It is a necessity. Are you growing spiritually? - Bayo Afolaranmi ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Help me, Lord, to be growing in Your grace and knowledge.

ARE YOU GROWING SPIRITUALLY?

Dearly Beloved, ARE YOU GROWING SPIRITUALLY? “…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 NIV). Growth is very essential to any living being or organization. Nobody would want to remain stagnant where he/she was last year. Also, no one would want his/her child to refuse to grow. We all want to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, materially and in other ramifications. This should be applicable also to our spiritual life. However, only believers grow spiritually. Just like any other growth or development, spiritual growth is not attained instantaneously. It is not dramatic experiences, climactic turning points, or instant solutions to spiritual problems that many people are looking for today. God’s design is that we be seasoned to maturity through a continual process of growth. This made Peter to tell his readers in 2 Peter 3:18 to grow spiritually. Peter admonished believers to grow, not any other person. This is rather a command, not an advice, so you have to desire and determine to grow spiritually. The determination to grow must be consistent without any distraction (compare Hebrews 12:2). If you are to be prepared for spiritual growth, your focus must be right. The focus must not be on what you must do, but on who you must be! Peter instructed us to grow spiritually in two things: grace and knowledge. Grace is important because it is the foundation of the spiritual life (compare Ephesians 2:8). The spiritual life is impossible without grace. You cannot know God apart from grace. You cannot grow apart from grace. You cannot deal with failure apart from grace. Moses knew this, and he asked for it (see Exodus 33:13). Grace also sustains you when you fail or when things are not going the way you want (see 2 Corinthians 12:7-10). To grow in one’s knowledge of Jesus Christ is not factual knowledge, but the experiential knowledge of Jesus Christ (see Philippians 3:10). The order of these items is important. Grace must precede knowledge. Therefore, keep things in order. Grace comes before knowledge. Without Jesus there is no understanding of grace. You cannot have knowledge without Jesus. Jesus is the embodiment of grace and spiritual truth. The last thing to note in this verse is the purpose of the growth: God’s glory. Everything we do or whoever we are must be to God’s glory (John 2:11; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Peter 5:10-11; Jude 25; Revelation 1:6; 5:9-14). Spiritual growth is not an option for any serious Christian. Are you growing spiritually? In what area are you lacking in your spiritual growth? There is nothing you can do to substitute your spiritual growth. It is a necessity. In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Help me, Lord, to be growing in Your grace and knowledge.

Spiritual Digest for the Day 07Aug2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “As those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still..." (Joshua 3:15-16 NKJV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY No matter what seems as obstacle to your progress in life, confront it with a stubborn faith and see what God would do. - Bayo Afolaranmi ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will be able to take the step of faith and confront your life’s challenges.

STEP INTO THE WATER!

Dearly Beloved, STEP INTO THE WATER! “As those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still..." (Joshua 3:15-16 NKJV). It was almost a year that I took the step of faith to come to the United Kingdom. I virtually had nothing then to support my postgraduate study and myself in the foreign land. There was no known sponsor anywhere to help me pay the school fees and other living expenses that were in millions of Nigerian naira. I was advised against taking the step. However, I was resolute. I took the step of faith that I termed “stubborn” faith. I came to the “Land of the Queen” (as we used to call the United Kingdom when I was young). Yes, it was tough, but God was, and is still, faithful, and He does not let me down. I am about to complete the study that I initially came to do, and there is a prospect already of proceeding further. If I did not take the step of faith almost a year ago, I would still have been where I was then without this feat of new experiences (and exposures), knowledge, and the opportunity of sharing this testimony. This story of my life reminds me of the story of the people of Israel under the leadership of Joshua when they were at the bank of River Jordan. They were looking to the Promised Land at the other side of the river. The river was a barrier for them to get to the place. However, God directed them through Joshua to break camp and cross the river. The instruction was that the priests should take the Ark of the Covenant and step into the over-flooded water of River Jordan and stay in the water till every Israelite cross over to the other side (see Joshua 3:1-13). That was awkward and risky! Why did God not order Joshua to stretch out his hand over the river and path it as Moses did with the Red Sea (see Exodus 14:21)? Why would the lives of the priests be endangered because the people wanted to cross the river? Why could the people not stay at that side of the river and wait till the water was subsided for them to cross safely to the other side? After all, where they were was also part of the Promised Land. Why could the people not think of other possible means of crossing the river? However, the priests took the steps of faith and stepped into the over-flooded water of River Jordan. As they stepped into the water, the water from the upstream stopped flowing, and the people crossed the river on dry ground (see Joshua 3:14-17)! What is the over-flooded River Jordan in your life? What is that thing that seems as obstacle to your progress in life? Are you ready to confront it with “stubborn” faith and see what God would do? If you are waiting till when the flooded water of your life will subside or when a bridge will be built over it, you may have to wait till eternity. Take the step of faith because “faith is the substance of things hoped for [and] the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV). Step into the water! In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Pray that you will be able to take the step of faith and confront your life’s challenges.
