WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS? BY SAM KORANKYE ANKRAH


# SamKorankyeAnkrah

Glory to God for His daily provision and for ushering us into a new month.

"So when they had gathered, Pilate said to them, “whom do you want me to release for you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?”" Matthew 27:17

Our text gives us insight into the events leading to the crucifixion of Jesus.

Under the Jewish law, amnesty ought to be granted on the day of the Passover. One prisoner must of necessity be released. Pilate presented Jesus and Barabbas and asked the people to make a choice. The people desired to release Barabbas and destroy Jesus, despite His innocence. Barabbas was the criminal, yet he was set free.

This week, I want us to dwell on some of the negative voices that influenced Pilate in his decision. Often in our daily endeavours we are influenced by same which makes us err.

The voice of public opinion led Pilate to crucify Jesus. According to the Bible; Pilate knew the people wanted Jesus killed out of envy. Yet, Pilate wanted to please the people so wouldn’t defend Jesus. Anytime you allow public opinion to influence you instead of the Word of God, you betray Jesus. Living a godly life should be by the Word of God.

Today, you’re being asked what you’ll do with this Jesus (betray Him or defend Him). Remember that next time it would be Jesus on his throne asking what He’ll do with you, a sinner.

Pray with me;

Dear Father, by the blood of Jesus we overcome negative voices that cause us to betray you and we ask for the grace to workout our salvation in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' name we pray.

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.

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

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…
