DCLM Higher Everyday 14 January 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi —Christ’s Compensation
TOPIC: CHRIST’S COMPENSATION
TEXT: MARK 10:27-31
27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
MEMORY VERSE: “But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life” (MARK 10:30).
Many youths today are largely aloof of Christ’s call to service in His kingdom. Like Peter, they want to know their immediate benefits and gratifications, and as such, fail to know that God does not call anyone to serve Him in vain. He has adequate compensation plans for all who answer the call to salvation and service. Christ’s compensation plan is greatly sufficient for this life and in eternity. He owes no man! He pays those who labour for Him in evangelizing the world and leading souls to the kingdom of God.
As you decide to seek the Lord today and for the rest of your life, you will soon discover He is the rewarder of them who diligently seek Him. Therefore, commit your time, talents, skills and treasure to a life-long service to God and humanity. There is no sacrifice too much to make for Christ and His kingdom.
Remember the Lord in your youth and be fervent for Him. From now on, ensure you are born again and become a worker for God in the school fellowship thereafter.
QUOTE: Be fervent for Him.
CHALLENGE: Following Christ is gain.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, help me to serve You with all I have.
