DCLM Daily Manna 4 February, 2018 by Pastor Kumuyi – Do The Extraordinary

Topic: Do The Extraordinary [DCLM Daily Manna Sunday February 4th, 2018]

Text: 1 Chronicles 11:10-25 (KJV)

Key Verse: “And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate” (1 Chronicles 11:17)


David’s success in bringing the nation together under his rule was because he had surrounded himself with not just very capable but also loyal men.

A spectacular incident took place while at the warfront against the Philistines. Three of David’s men risked their lives to bring him water, but he would not drink it. Their daring venture manifested the extremity of their loyalty to him. David had demanded “water of the well of Bethlehem”. To David, it was a mere wish. Yet, these three brave men took the challenge and risked their lives to get the water for their master.

David also demonstrated a rare leadership trait and equally proved himself a man who had feelings for his subordinates by refusing to drink the water. He instead poured it on the ground as an offering only God deserved. He equated the water with the blood of the men to underscore the gravity of the risk they took.

There are important lessons for us here. One, we learn the pertinence of loyalty to God-ordained spiritual leaders. Two, our service to God must be absolute. As believers, we must bear in mind that serving in His Army requires a holy life and complete allegiance.

Our services to God must be unconditional, offered strictly on His own terms. He who will be of worth in God’s hands must be willing to consecrate his all on His altar. That’s the beauty that the service of David’s three servants portrayed.

As believers, we should be bold and courageous in combing the nooks and crannies of our communities to fish souls into God’s kingdom. Be assured that our Lord, Emmanuel, is always with us as co-Labourer.

Thought For The Day: Only extraordinary work attracts extraordinary rewards.

Bible Reading in a Year: Exodus 16-18.

Flatimes’ Notice Board: Please do not prolong your salvation if you have not repented. Many are going home daily and tomorrow maybe too late.
