MEMORISE: “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” – Isaiah 60:1 (KJV)
READ: John 8:12 (KJV)
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Romans 12-15
When light comes into a dark place, everything changes. Confusion and sadness change to clarity and joy. John 8:12 says that Jesus is the Light of the world. When Jesus enters into your life, everything changes for the better. When He comes in, poverty is driven out for prosperity, depression is replaced with joy and demonic oppression changes to spiritual dominance.
There was a woman who wanted to be the one controlling her husband, so she went to a witch doctor, who told her to put her husband’s picture in a basket with a lid and cover it. He assured her that, as long as the lid remained on the basket, her husband would do anything she said. He however cautioned her that any time she noticed that her husband was beginning to act sluggish, she should remove the lid for a while and after he returned to normal, she could close the basket again. She took the basket home and it worked just as the witch doctor had said. One time when she removed the lid so he wouldn’t die, her husband heard the gospel and gave his life to Christ; Light came into his life. The wife put the lid back on the basket and tried to control him, but he said, “No way, I am the head of this home”. She ran back to the witch-doctor when she saw that the charm was no longer working. He conducted a check in the spirit and said, “A stronger power has rescued him from my hold”.
When light comes into your life, the devil will have absolutely no hold on you again.
Many people are suffering today because they don’t have The Light in their lives. Many claim to be Christians but, because they don’t really have Jesus in their heart as they claim, the devil has kept them in bondage. Let The Light come into your life today so that you can be free. The Light came into my life in 1973 and since then, I have had a better quality of life. I remember how I used to have malaria at least once every month, but today, malaria is gone. I was so deep in the bondage of poverty that even though I was the one who used to pay my driver’s salary, somehow by the middle of the month, I would be so broke that I would have to borrow money from him to buy fuel in the car. When The Light came in, everything changed.
Give your life to Christ today and begin to enjoy abundant life.
Jesus is all you need to live a better life.
HYMN 3: All To Jesus I Surrender
1 All to Jesus I surrender,
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.
I surrender all,
I surrender all;
All to Thee, my blessed Saviour,
I surrender all.
2 All to Jesus I surrender,
Humbly at His feet I bow;
Worldly pleasures all forsaken,
Take me, Jesus, take me now.
3 All to Jesus I surrender,
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power,
Let Thy blessing fall on me.
4 All to Jesus I surrender,
Now I feel the sacred flame;
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory to His name!
HAPPY NEW MONTH!
