DCLM Sincere Milk  10 December 2023 Devotional by Pastor W. F. KumuyiThe Decision Of The Wise

Topic: The Decision Of The Wise

Text: Isaiah 1:11-18

Key Verse: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18


During the break time in school, Susan was sitting at the back of the class thinking about how her life had been. She was always angry and not performing well in her studies. While she was in her sober mood, Faith, one of her classmates, came to seat by her side. She encouraged Susan to seek help from God concerning her situation by first inviting Jesus into her life as her Lord and Saviour. Susan accepted her invitation and she surrendered her life to Christ. From then on, things turn around for good in her life.

From our Bible passage, the Lord is calling you to come reason with Him and make a wise decision to follow Him. You cannot remain in your sin and expect God to come to your rescue. God did not want to condemn and destroy sinners. He offered full forgiveness and pardon if they would only repent, put away evil, strive to do right and obey His word. God’s forgiveness is now available for all sinners. All you need do is to:
i. Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
ii. Confess and repent of your sins.
iii. Pray and ask for forgiveness and cleansing of your heart with the blood of Jesus.
iv. Ask Jesus into your heart as your personal Saviour and Lord.

This is the wisest decision you can make in this life.

Prayer for today: Lord, I surrender my life to You.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
