WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS (Dealing with Pride and Self Importance) By Sam Korankye Ankrah

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS

(Dealing with Pride and Self Importance)


“Then Pilate said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have the power to crucify You, and power to release You?” (John 19:10 -11)

Glory to God for another beautiful day; it has been a blessed week.

In the last few days, we took a dive into the crucifixion of Jesus Christ from Mathew 27:22.

Although Pilate knew Jesus was innocent he allowed the will of the people to prevail over his judgement. Pilate was influenced by certain strange voices and today we shall conclude with the voice of pride and self-importance. Pilate bluffed Jesus and told him he had the power to crucify or save him. But Jesus replied unless God gives him the power, he has nothing.

Many of us, in our relationship with God, allow pride and self-importance to control us. We consider our personal achievements, positions, reputation, academic laurels and societal positions bigger than God or the church. These do hinder us in rendering our worship to God. We must come to the understanding that our success is given to us by God and hence He is bigger than material things.

“A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honour.”

Proverbs 29:23

Do not turn your back on Jesus because of pride. This is a betrayal of Him and failure to recognise His death on the cross to secure your eternal life.

Today, you are being asked what you will do with this Jesus; betray Him or defend Him? The next time it would be Jesus on His throne asking what He would do with you a sinner.

Pray with me:

My Heavenly Father, I pray for your forgiveness. May Your renewed mercies find me this morning. I receive the grace to walk in humility and the fear of God in the name of Jesus Christ.

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…
