OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL. WEDNESDAY JANUARY 13 2016. THEME : BEING WITH JESUS.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL.
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 13 2016.
THEME : BEING WITH JESUS.
MEMORISE : Take my yoke upon you, and learn of
me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls. Mathew  11 : 29.
READ : ACTS 4 : 13 – 14 :
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and
John, and perceived that they were unlearned and
ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took
knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
14 And beholding the man which was healed
standing with them, they could say nothing against
it.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: DEUTERONOMY 7 : 1 – 9 : 12,
JOB 3 : 3 – 19.
It is one thing to answer the call of Jesus Christ,
and it is another thing to stay put with Him after we
answer the call. There are casual followers of
Jesus Christ and there are die-hard followers as
well. The casual followers of Jesus Christ have their
reasons for casually following Him. One of it may be
because they cannot live by the ideals that Jesus
teaches in His gospel. Being with Jesus means
living by His teachings, He once lamented:
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the
things which I say? Luke 6 : 46.
Many call Jesus “Lord” with their mouth but indeed,
they do not regard Him as the Lord of their lives.
This is why, for the avoidance of doubt, Jesus said :
“…If ye continue in my word, then are ye my
disciples indeed: And ye shall know the truth, and
the truth shall make you free.” John 8 : 31 – 32.
Two things are clear from our Bible reading for
today; the first is, if you have been with Jesus
indeed, boldness will be your trademark. The Bible
says :
“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage
again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of
adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” Romans
8 : 15.
When a so-called child of God is living in fear, we
must check out whether indeed he has been with
Jesus. Secondly; someone who has been with
Jesus lives a daily miraculous life, this is another
trademark of genuine followers of Jesus Christ. The
Bible says :
“And beholding the man which was healed standing
with them, they could say nothing against it.” Acts
4 : 14.
I have taught my children in the School of Disciples
that we can do more than Jesus did according to
His promise. When we believe this, we stop being
caricatures of His Ambassadors on earth. Then, we
shall bring the whole world to their knees, when we
confidently tell them that Jesus is Lord. We are
indeed the light and salt of the world if we chose to
be with Jesus, living according to His ideals. Two
great blessings of being with Jesus are: we shall
learn of Him and when we learn of Him, we shall
find rest for our souls. Come to Jesus today and
decide to stay put. Don’t be a casual or temporary
follower of Jesus Christ.
ACTION POINT :
Make up your mind to live the rest of your life for
and with Jesus today and you will be a blessed
person.
