MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 27 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – True Witness of Christ’s Ministry
TOPIC: True Witness of Christ’s Ministry (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 27 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 John 1:1-4
MEMORY VERSE: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” – Acts 1:8
There is a big difference between knowing Jesus on the pages of the Scriptures and having a personal encounter with Him. There were many people around Jesus during His earthly ministry who saw Him on a daily basis and witnessed His miracles but never had any spiritual encounter with Him. They enjoyed His free food, miracles, teachings and sermons. They even touched Him physically, but they never had any spiritual encounter with Him. This means that it is possible for someone to enjoy all the blessings in the ministry using the name of Jesus, testify to various miracles received, teach and preach the gospel, without being a true disciple of Jesus Christ. When you carefully read and meditate on the Fire Scripture of today, you will notice that Apostle John had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. His was not a secondhand religious experience inherited from someone else or discovered in a book, but he (John), knew Jesus Christ one-on-one, face-to-face, heard Him speak, watched Him as He lived, studied Him carefully, touched His body, and digested the word of eternal life He spoke to them always. He knew that Jesus is real, not a phantom, not a vision, but God in human corporeal form. So he rightly confessed and declared in John 1:34 “I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God”. It was not only the Apostle’s physical closeness to Jesus Christ that made them what they were, it was their spiritual closeness. They had committed themselves to Him as their Saviour and their Lord.
Believers are expected to have encountered Jesus at the point of New Birth. The experience of their salvation is supposed to be a catalyst in them to propel them towards pursuing the goal of reigning with Christ in eternity. The zeal and passion for the love of Christ who saved them from eternal damnation is supposed to compel them to witness Him to the dying world. Genuine salvation comes with this encounter and those who experience it see the need for witnessing Christ to others. If you have actually encountered Jesus, you should not be ashamed to let the people around you know about Him and be saved from their sin. In doing this, you will be able to please the One that saved you and enjoy the benefits of new life. Also, to have fullness of Joy, you must strive to conform to the standards of the Apostles and teach others to do same. Be a true witness of Christ’s ministry.
