Topic: Christianity Is A Faith With Reward [TREM Devotional 1 March 2019]
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.” Isaiah 45:19 KJV
Christianity is not a faith without reward. In other words, we don’t belong in a group of people that come together without any benefits for our gathering. Christianity is so dynamic that it moves from glory to glory. There is no way you can go down when you have made Jesus the Lord of your life.
“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). So, in Christ, your life becomes better. Your life begins to change from glory to glory when you give your life to Christ. The greatest thing that can happen to anyone under the sun is to be born again. So, you see, until a man is born again, he cannot know what belongs to him. No wonder Jesus said to Nicodemus: “…Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3 KJV) He cannot see, and he cannot enter. He cannot appreciate it! He cannot interpret how it functions! consequently, he cannot enjoy the benefits of the Kingdom.
However, when you are born again, the next responsibility is for you to find out what is available to you. The problem with a lot of believers is that they are so used to this razzmatazz type of worship: “Just come and slap it on my head.” You jump up and fall on the ground and go without taking responsibility to read and study the Word in order to discover what God has made available to you.
Every Word and every Promise has been validated in the blood. It is already settled and there is nothing that can stand against it. So, you see, the responsibility now falls on you to find out what has been made available to you in Christ.
