Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 17 April 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Greatest Sacrifice (II)
TOPIC: The Greatest Sacrifice (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 16 April 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 28:15-68, Luke 18:1-30, Psalm 47:1-9
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 10:1-23 (KJV)
1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
MEMORY VERSE: “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.” – Hebrews 10:14
The death of Christ to true believers is eternal gain.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE DEATH OF CHRIST SHALL NOT BE IN VAIN OVER YOUR LIFE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
Having seen the extent of God’s love in giving us His only begotten Son (John 3:16), who ended up laying His life for us, it is amazing to know that we stand to enjoy many benefits through this unique death and perfect sacrifice. As the beloved of God, it will be good for you and me to reach out for these benefits and enjoy them to the best.
The death of sinless Jesus for sinners is a great evidence of the Agape love! This perfect sacrifice has opened for us the door of renewed relationship with God. Jesus Christ Himself called us “friends”, for the sake of whom He could freely lay down His life and pick it up again (John 15:13). His Blood, through His death, cleanses and purifies us from our sins, having satisfied the wrath of God against us; the price of our sins has been fully paid (Ephesians 5:12; Hebrews 9:14). What a relief! Immeasurable benefits through this perfect sacrifice that was ever made!
Here, we are offered grace and mercy, according to Romans 5:8, and through His death we are made righteous. 2 Corinthians 5:12 affirms that we are no longer seen in the filthiness of our sins but cloaked in His righteousness and the perfect life of Christ in us. This has made us to attain a privileged position of sonship through which we can also cry, Abba Father! We can now live a new life by faith and declare, like the Apostle Paul in Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I that live but Christ who lives in me…..”
Beloved, aren’t we blessed to be partakers of the above blessings and benefits from the death of Christ? As through a man (Adam), death came into the world, through another man, Jesus, we receive eternal life. It would be wise and of eternal gain if you would do God’s will with all sincerity and be found faithful enough to claim all these blessings and enjoy the grace and mercy of God.
- Father Lord, forgive me for not appreciating Your love to me, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, help me to understand the depth, height and width of Your love for me, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything assigned to pull me away from the love of God, crumble and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus, purge me, cleanse me and make me whole, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, help me to enjoy the fullness of grace and mercy available through the death of Christ, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers that cannot keep Jesus in the grave, you cannot limit my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Because Jesus lives, I am alive and can face tomorrow, in the name of Jesus.
