Our Daily Manna November 18, 2017: ODM devotional – Sacrifice Your Water Pot
Topic: Sacrifice Your Water Pot [Saturday, November 18, 2017]
Basic Scriptures: John 4:21-30
It was Dave Harvey who quipped: “Everything in scripture is either preparation for the Gospel, presentation of the Gospel, or participation in the Gospel.” Then I remember David McGee: “We should be more concerned with reaching the lost than pampering the saved.” Again he is on point; so true! No wonder years ago, a stranger asked a Christian painter: “What is your business?” His reply? “My business is to preach the gospel, but I paint houses to pay my expenses.”
Now I will ask you, what is your business? Is it driving, buying and selling, teaching, plumbing, cooking, Pharmacy, Photography, Medicine, Engineering, Accounting, Administration, Preaching as a profession, or preaching the gospel as a calling etc? Any other job you are doing today, will end someday. Only what is done for Christ will last! Let your evangelism altar receive fresh fire again as 2017 ends and 2018 begins. Imagine the fire and zeal the woman in today’s Basic Scripture used in drawing her people ( the Samaritans) to Christ. The human body contains about 70% water! You know how important water is to anybody, yet she left her water pot (Vs 28).
When did you do that last? When did you leave your “water pot” ( job, husband, children, business, your sleep, money, your car, TV, your prestige and reputation etc), and told men, “come see the Man who delivered me from hell.” Tell God to destroy shame, greed for money, laziness and take back by force, the original evangelism fire of old. Oh! Hear the great Charles Haddon Spurgeon: “Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you ‘re not saved yourself, be sure of that!” Wow! Very harsh but correct! Please preach in the bus, market places, schools, t-junctions, street corners, and do early morning cries.
Pay for a radio/TV slot for your local ministry or this ODM vision if you can! At every available opportunity, open your mouth: Sacrifice your water pot ( your physical or financial comfort)! 2 Tim. 4:2 says: “Preach the Word ( Gospel) in season( when convenient) and out of season (when not convenient). To obtain God’s best we must give our best. To win we must surrender! To live we must die! To receive, we must give! Give your time to preaching the gospel DAILY ON THIS PLANET.
MY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY THANKSGIVING SERVICE IS ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 26TH. TIME: 12PM. COME AND CELEBRATE WITH ME HIS AMAZING GRACE AT OGUDU!
Prayer Points: Take your best worship song to God.
1. Ask for fresh fire for souls (Pray this for one week).
2. Pray for sinners today. Ask God to lead you across someone as you go out today.
3. Holy Ghost, set everything cold in me on fire again!
4. Pray about today generally as led now. Cancel SHAME!
Action Point: Talk to someone about Christ today, tomorrow and every day you live!
