MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 21 March 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Christian Home
TOPIC: The Christian Home (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 21 March 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 30-31; Mark 15:1-25
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 2:12-17
MEMORY VERSE: “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” – Proverbs 13:24
Not having Christian discipline can upturn your entire household. Examples of these abound everywhere. In the Bible, one could refer to the story of Eli the priest at Shiloh who refused to discipline his two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, for their untoward attitude in all ways. His pampering and failure to discipline his children led to a curse and his death. The Lord was not happy with his household and the sins of his children were more or less visited on him (1 Samuel 4:18).
Undisciplined parents would charge at anybody who dared correct their children for wrong doing. I was in a Christian family home some time ago. They just returned from church service when I got to their house. The way the two daughters dressed was unsightly, one could see their underwear. One of the neighbours jokingly remarked that, “Sade, when next your mummy dresses you like this, I will make sure that both of you are arrested.” Sade’s mother immediately replied, “Please, leave my girls alone, they have not committed any offence. They are wearing what their colleagues wear, it is what is in vogue.” It beats me hollow to hear the mother’s reply. I ruminated in my mind that if everybody was going mad, should those who are sane join them also? This attitude does not fall within Christian discipline. Half or almost total nakedness is utter indiscipline in a Christian family.
As a Christian, your life including the way you dress should be a good epistle for others to read and should glorify God. Are you a parent? Your lifestyle should preach and instil holiness and discipline in your children and ward. Beloved, let people around you see the glory of God in and through you. Let your lifestyle and character win souls for Christ and make others better Christians. Lord will give you the grace to do so, in Jesus’ name
DO NOT BE DEAF TO HELPFUL CORRECTIONS.
May your children always be guided by the Lord.
- O Lord, help me to love Your word more than my necessary food, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise, rain down Your bread from heaven to sustain our nation, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, help me to set my eyes on things above, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise, quench the thirst of my soul, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not walk in the counsel of the devil, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou bread of heaven that gives life, fill me afresh, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to monitor my destruction, you are a failure, die, in the name of Jesus.
