DCLM Higher Everyday 31 July 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — A fearful thing
TOPIC: A FEARFUL THING
TEXT: HEBREWS 10:30-32
31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
MEMORY VERSE: “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (HEBREWS 10:31).
William Pope who had known the love of the Saviour but later backslid after the death of his wife was heard saying on his sick bed: “No case is comparable to mine. I cannot repent. God will damn me forever. I know the day of grace is gone… Oh the hell, the torment, the fire that I feel within me. Oh, eternity, eternity, to dwell forever with devils, the damned spirits in the burning lake must be my portion, and that justly.” With these words, he died.
Indeed, it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God and because of the horror of hell, no youth should go there. To escape God’s fearful judgment, every youth must embrace the mercy of God by taking these simple steps:
(i) Acknowledge your sins and unbelief before God.
(ii) Repent of your sins by humbly confessing and forsaking them.
(iii) Believe in the atoning sacrifice of Christ for your salvation.
(iv) Invite Christ into your heart by accepting Him as your Saviour and only Lord (Revelation 3:20; John 1:12).
QUOTE: Repent of your sins.
CHALLENGE: The Lord shall judge His people.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from the horror of hell fire.
