MFM Daily Devotional 28th July 2021 OUTLINE
A deeper Christian life is a life that has a deep relationship with Jesus and is transformed through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The deeper Christian life is the life that is totally yielded to Christ and is averse to the things of the world and its system. The deeper Christian life is the life that is built around Jesus. The focus is removed from self and placed on Jesus.
It is the life that will never compromise with the world. When we are born again, we receive God’s life and have the privilege of sharing in His nature and are able to conform to His character and standard of holiness. According to 2 Peter 1: 4, we are also able to escape the corruption of the world that is caused by evil desires. Then we are empowered to live the way God wants us to live so that our lives can be a true reﬂection of His own character and attributes and thereby attract others to His marvellous grace(Phil 2:15).
The deeper Christian life is a life of submission and humility. Is your life a true reﬂection of God’s character? How is your relationship with others at work and at home? God expects us to be more like Him so that we can win others to Him. Jesus said, “If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32). We can only accomplish this when we live the deeper Christian life.
A life that is dented to holiness, studying and living God’s word, fasting and praying as well as evangelising will make you a deeper Christians.
He who lives for nothing will die for nothing, therefore live for God and for His glory.
Today, the grace to become a spiritually deeper Christian is given to you, in the name of Jesus.
