Topic: Christ Was Consecrated – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi [Date: Tuesday 05 March, 2018].
Scripture: “In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I,Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, 0 God” (Hebrews 10:6, 7).
When the soldiers of Napoleon’s army invaded Russia, they came to a village from which all the symbol of inhabitants had fled except one man. When the French captain saw him he ordered him to be shot The man was looking fearlessly. The captain ordered them to lower their guns. He said we will brand him.” So the branding iron was brought out and placed in the fire. It was placed upon the Russian’s hand and letter “N” was branded on his palm.
The captain said “The letter ‘N’ stands for Napoleon; you belong to Napoleon now.” This patriotic Russian placed his burned hand on something solid, took an axe and severed his own hand. He said, “The hand may belong to Napoleon. but Iam a Russian. If I must die.I will die a Russian.” Oh that Christian youth may be so consecrated today! The symbol of Christianity is a cross and not a rocking chair. We must be ready to suffer and sacrifice for our faith to show our loyalty to Jesus. The price is entire consecration.
Challenge: Calvary love demands my alf.
Prayer: Lord, I give up my own ambitions and accept thy will for my life
