Topic: Simply Exquisite [DCLM Daily Manna 26 December 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Mark 7:34-37 (KJV)
Key Verse: “And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak” (Mark 7:37)
Every generation has produced some personalities who became outstanding in their chosen fields of endeavour. The list includes technocrats, sportsmen, clergymen, politicians, businessmen, academics and other professionals. Many have been admired to the point of near worship. Truly, many of them deserve the honour accorded them. But even the best of these people have their dark side. Some of them have skeleton in their cupboards and would be hated with passion if people got close enough to know who they really were and what they represented. But this is not so with Jesus.
In His earthly life and ministry, the more closely people knew Him, the more amazed they felt about His innocence, loving-kindness and sheer power. The inhabitants of the Greek city of Decapolis said of Him, “He hath done all things well”, when they observed His miraculous healing of a deaf and dumb man.
Their eloquent testimony agrees with friends and foes who encountered Christ. Of Him it was recorded, “… who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil…” Peter said of Him, “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.” Pilate confessed, “I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man.” The officers sent by the chief priests and Pharisees to arrest Him heard Him and went back to report that ‘’Never man spake like this man.” When He asked, “Which of you convinceth me of sin?” nobody came forward.
Christ is unique in every way. In His personality, passion and performance, He does all things well. Dying for our sins, He is the only worthy One to be our Saviour and Lord. If you have found Him to be so, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in [Him]”. If not, then repent, forsake your sin, pick up your cross and follow Him.
Thought For The Day: The Christian’s greatest commitment is to follow Christ’s footsteps.
