Colossians 3:3 (KJV)

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 


Today’s theme Scripture is a follow up on yesterday’s. We were admonished yesterday, that, if we are risen with Christ, then, we should seek and set our affection on heavenly things, and not on earthly things. 

The verse 3 gives us the reason for such admonishment. It begins by saying, “For ye are dead..” Dead to what? Romans 6:2 (KJV) says, “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” We are dead to sin! To be dead to sin, is to be unresponsive to sin. Death means, separation. We can no longer yield ourselves to sin because we are separated from it. We are dead to sin, but alive in Christ, that’s why the next line says, “...and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Though we are dead, we are alive! This sounds paradoxical, but it simply means, the only reason for living is Christ! We have no other business here on earth than to live for Christ. No matter our vocation on earth, we’re to let the beauty of Jesus be seen in us through that vocation. No wonder Apostle Paul says in Philippians 1:21 (NKJV), “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Apostle Paul’s conviction was that, if we live for any other reason other than Christ, then, physical death is gain. He was so dead to sin, he had nothing to live for in this world. He said in Galatians 2:20 (KJV), “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Indeed, he was dead to sin, but alive in Christ!

We ought to have the same conviction! We ought to live with the same mentality, that, we’re dead to sin, but alive in Christ. It is this conviction and mentality which drives us to long for Christ and His coming. Hallelujah!

Anointed for a Purpose By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Scripture Reading:
Acts 13:19-22; Genesis 1:26-28

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
