Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 18 April 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Greatest Sacrifice (III)
TOPIC: The Greatest Sacrifice (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 18 April 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 28, Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Luke 18:31-43, Luke 19:1-10, Proverbs 10:1-10
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:1-21 (KJV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
MEMORY VERSE: “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.” – Ephesians 2:14, 16
No other sacrifice can be greater than a man who was sinless but died a sinner for your sake, even to rise again in glory.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
YOU WILL RECEIVE AND ENJOY THE FULL BENEFITS OF CHRIST’S DEATH FOR HIS BELOVED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
As we continue to look at the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sakes and its benefits, we shall come to the realisation that Christ has given us victory over death and sin as well as the power to live a victorious Christian life. His death settled every claim of sin and death over our lives.
He declared that, “It is finished” on the Cross. This signifies an end to all our burdens, pains, sorrows, troubles and struggles. His blood was a seal of victory and deliverance to all that believe in Him. Are we not blessed indeed? This blood purifies and speaks better promises than that of Abel that cries for revenge. By His blood, we are drawn closer to God and perfectly secured in Him (Hebrews 9:12).
Jesus laid eternal examples for us in word and in deed, even in His death, and expects that we should follow in His footsteps. He was humble till death on the Cross of Calvary (Philippians 2:6-8). What an incomparable humility! Little wonder that God exalted Him above every other creature on earth and in heaven. His name is above every other name!
Even in Titus 2:14, you and I are empowered to live out God’s will on earth as we are set apart for His good works. This is very true because until you are washed by the blood of the Lamb; you are not fit for the Kingdom. His death makes us relevant in God’s agenda for man. Especially those of us who are Gentiles, “strangers and aliens”, who by birth are not worthy to be counted among the beloved, but through redemption (His death and His blood), we became sons and daughters of God. We are also able to make peace with God. This is Agape love, and we should be eternally grateful.
In all of these, why don’t you take some time for deep reflection over what the death of Christ has bestowed on you? It is calling us to deep and total commitment to Christ our Lord and Saviour. After all, we can do nothing to pay or compensate Him for this great offering of Himself. Just give all of you!
- Father, help me to fully comprehend Your love for me, in the name of Jesus.
- O God my Father, deliver me from every lie of satan to distract me from the Way, in the name of Jesus.
- I declare with faith that, according to the words of Jesus, “It is finished….” (Insert whatever you desire an end to), in the name of Jesus.
- Powers weakening my spiritual strength, what are you doing? Fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive the fullness of grace and mercy that the death of Christ has given me, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus, purge and cleanse me of the power of sin and worldliness, in the name of Jesus.
- JESUS, shout it seven (7) times, let Your Name begin to work wonders in my life.
