FRIDAY 23RD NOVEMBER, 2018
THEME: TRANSFORMATION COMES FROM GOD
TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 3:5-18
MEMORY VERSE: 1 CORINTHIAN 3:18 “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.”
We daily plan, plant and make positive moves towards a mission or vision. All our plans and moves come to pass through the grace and transformation that God gives. When a farmer plants on a fertile land he goes away but the power behind the seed growing comes from God. There is nothing man does that is fruitful without the knowledge of God. He gives grace of fruitfulness. Therefore, there is nothing God requires from you and me than for us to acknowledge His power of fruitfulness and transformation.
Verse 18 of our reading today says if anyone thinks he is wise by the standard of the world, he should become a fool in order to be really wise and understand what God wants. In the presence of God we are nothing. When you see yourself as someone that knows nothing in the presence of God, God will enrich and increase your understanding and wisdom. He will grant the work of your hand divine fruitfulness. He will transform all you do by His power and your life forever shall be a testimony.
It is not by your power but grace which God has given that brings transformation to all things. All you need to do is to give your life to Him for transformation and He will transform it. It is equally important for you to commit all you do to His hand for divine transformation. He shall transform it and make it forever fruitful. See God today as the transformer for all your endeavour and you shall have testimony. Another point made known by Paul in the text is that our work here on earth will be tested by fire. If your work is like gold, it gets brighter when it passes through fire but if it is wood, hay or stubble, it shall suffer great loss when it passes through fire. So consider your ways today and make amends.
HYMN: EMHB 400 – TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE
PRAYER: Lord God, I see You today as the Power behind all transformations. Let this power manifest in all my daily endeavours in Jesus’ name. Amen.
