MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 14 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Reconciled For Greater Works
TOPIC: Reconciled For Greater Works (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 14 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Mark 3:13-19
MEMORY VERSE: “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” – 2 Corinthians 5:18
Reconciliation means the ending of conflict or renewing of a friendly relationship between disputing parties, who had been separated over a period of time. What this means is that there was a friendly relationship between both parties before, but as a result of one problem or another, there is now a quarrel between them. In the beginning, there was a cordial relationship between man and God which was severed by man’s disobedience to God’s instruction. However, Christ came to reconcile man to the former friendly relationship with God.
In His earthly ministry, Jesus often sent out His disciples to preach, heal, and cast out devils. Notice, however, that before He sent them out, He would have a long period of personal fellowship with them. God desires intimacy with everyone of us. He sent His Son to die for this purpose — the purpose of reconciling us to Himself. We, who are born again, have been reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. Giving your life to Jesus Christ is therefore the first step towards accepting to be reconciled to God. We become friendly and intimate again with God as He first planned it from the foundation of the world. We are separated from sin and separated unto God.
The question now is, does it end there? Is that all there is to our salvation?
NO! There is another aspect and ministry in which God would have all men to be saved. John 14:12 tells us that Jesus assures that greater works we shall do. He has done the work of reconciling us to God and calling us into ministry of reconciliation. We have been called to witness to souls, to preach, win souls and to do greater works. When we surrender our lives to Christ, we are reconciled to God and immediately as believers, it is our duty to bring the unbelievers to the knowledge of Christ so they can also be reconciled. The first point of call is at the level of personal intimacy with God, but we cannot just be selfish and be satisfied with that. Our love for God should push us to talk to our fellow men and women, so that they too can enjoy the intimacy and relationship we have with God. Get intimate with God. Develop a relationship with Him. Pray for souls. Preach Christ Jesus. Partake in the ministry of reconciliation. I assure you, the reward is immense.
GOD DESIRES INTIMACY WITH EVERY MAN, HE SENT HIS SON TO DIE FOR THIS PURPOSE.
