Topic: The Great Question – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi [Date: Sunday, February 25, 2018].
Scripture: “How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman” (Job 25:4)?
I recall my primary school days, when my class teacher repeatedly told us that bright students were known by their disposition to asking questions in class. While I agree with his idea, I now know, from personal experience, that asking good or relevant questions is actually more important than their frequency and volume. Our text today presents the most important question of all time, bordering on the purpose of human existence! However, it is aptly answered thus: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
Every wise-hearted person must ask this question. And God is waiting, willing to provide personalized response that redeems a soul from eternal damnation. Many people argue that holiness is not possible in this world. However God commands that we should be holy, for He is holy. He has made holiness possible by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross to cleanse and justify us, the Bible to guide us and the Holy Ghost to empower us. Yes, because of Jesus, we can be clean.
Challenge: Truly, everyone that seeks must find.
Prayer: Father, please lead me into the secret place of the Most High.
