Growing Up 2 By Rev Eastwood Anaba


Sunday, March 3, 2019

Theme: Grow Up

Topic: Growing Up 2

Scripture Reading:
1 Corinthians 13:8-11; Ephesians 4:10-16

Main Text:
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I  spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

The  ultimate  goal  of  the  Church, as discussed in earlier devotionals, is to grow till our maturity reaches its climax - the stature of the fullness of Christ. This goal includes attaining unto His holiness and power. It elevates us to reign with Him as kings, share in His office as the High Priest and participate in  His prophetic office (Revelation 1:5-6).

The Church has to be  built till it attains the  measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.  Many well-meaning believers have argued that it is impossible  for believers to be like  Jesus Christ on earth. They contend that He  was perfect in purity and power because He was the infallible Son of God. The Scriptures however make it clear that though Jesus was the Son of God, He depended on the Holy Ghost and the  Word of God to please  the Father in all things (Luke 4:18:19; Acts 10:37-38).

The apostle Paul admonished the  Colossians to walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing (Colossians 1:10). The term “walk worthy” means to live a godly life that measures the full distance of Jesus’ life of obedience and occupies the full volume of His love. The apostle Paul set this target before the Colossians because it was possible  to attain it. Believers can walk as Jesus Christ walked on earth. We are  to live  in the  world, as Christ is in heaven (1 John 4:17).

Pray for yourself that you will not lose sight of Jesus Christ, our ultimate goal for growth.

Anointed for a Purpose By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Theme: Purpose

Topic: Anointed for a Purpose

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…

Scripture Reading:Genesis 1:26-28;  
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

Theme: Purpose
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…
