DIVINE TRANSFORMATION I :OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL. SATURDAY JANUARY 23 2016.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL.
SATURDAY JANUARY 23 2016.
THEME: DIVINE TRANSFORMATION I

MEMORISE : “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.
READ : 1 CORINTHIANS 6 : 9 – 11 :

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit
the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor
effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with
mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor
revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom
of God.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed,
but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the
name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our
God.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : DEUTERONOMY 31 : 14 – 32
:
47, JOB 9 : 13 – 24.
Yesterday, we read about the state of the heart of
man being very wicked. We also read about spiritual
surgery which can bring about divine
transformation. The work of redemption performed
by Jesus Christ makes divine transformation
possible.
In the Bible reading for today, we note the terrible
things that man is capable of. Paul, an apostle of
Jesus Christ, unequivocally said that those who do
those things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
However, he wrote :
“And such were some of you: but ye are washed,
but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the
name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of God.” 1
Corithians 6 : 11.
Our Lord Jesus Christ was speaking to Nicodemus
about divine transformation when He said to him:
“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be
born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Being born of water and of the Spirit brings about
divine transformation.
The mystery of the new birth cannot be explained by
human reasoning except through the enlightenment
by the Spirit of our God. For example, in the epistle
of John :
“He that commiteth sin is of the devil; for the devil
sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son
of God was manifested, that he might destroy the
works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth
not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and
he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 1 John
3 : 8 – 9.

There are two main avenues for experiencing divine
transformation: first is genuine repentance; when a
man voluntarily submits his will to God in obedience.
The other one is the power in the blood of Jesus
Christ; the blood of the new covenant is much more
superior to the blood of the bull ( Hebrews 10 : 4 ).
Therefore, for divine transformation, Jesus Christ is
the answer. I pray that all the necessary
transformation you need to live an acceptable life
before God will be given to you through Jesus
Christ, our Lord.

PRAYER POINT :
Father, please cleanse me from all impurities and let
my life conform to Your original image.
