THEME : YOU CAN BE HIS WITNESS
Memory Verse: And my speech and
my preaching was not with enticing
words of man’s wisdom, but in
demonstration of the Spirit and of
power: 1 Corinthians 2:4
Read: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
1 And I, brethren, when I came to
you, came not with excellency of
speech or of wisdom, declaring unto
you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any
thing among you, save Jesus Christ,
and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness,
and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching
was not with enticing words of
man’s wisdom, but in
demonstration of the Spirit and of
power:
5 That your faith should not stand
in the wisdom of men, but in the
power of God.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : GENESIS 3 – 5
Message
As a bona fide member of the
Kingdom of God, you must be a
proof of His power to save. Matthew
1:21 says Jesus shall save His people
from sin. 1 John 1:7 says His blood
cleanses us from all sins. If the
power to save was demonstrated in
the life of anybody at all, it was in
the life of Paul. In 1 Timothy 1:15
he says,
“This is a faithful saying, and
worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save
sinners; of whom I am chief.”
He could say this because he
realised how far he had gone before
Jesus saved him. What about your
life? Can you say you have not
observed changes in your life from
the time you received Jesus into
your life? If you have, share it with
others. The testimonies of salvation
I hear these days are too shallow:
when you hear some people talk,
you would think they were saints
all along. Let your life prove that He
can transform lives. Where are the
evidences of a changed life?
However, you need the power of
the Spirit to produce the proof.
Power simply means the ability to
do work. Philippians 4:13 says I can
do all things by the power of Jesus
Christ. God wants to use you to heal
the sick so that you can truly say
Jesus has the power to heal. He
wants to use you to cast out
demons and bring joy, peace and
freedom to the captives so that you
can be His witness in all these areas.
When the devil takes over a life, he
can do things that are negatively
incredible e.g. the mad man of
Gadara. On the positive side, if you
are full of the Holy Ghost, God will
use you to do great things that will
baffle you. A politician came to the
Redemption Camp during one of
our congresses and said that he
cannot understand what is going
on. He said when they are holding
political rallies; they have to pay
people to attend, but that in our
own case, the people come in
masse and give their money as
offering without being paid. I told
him the people are not coming to
meet me but the Holy Ghost. Are
you ready for God to use you these
last days? Draw closer to the Holy
Spirit as never before.
Action Point
Win at least one soul to the Lord
today.
