THE BRIDE’S DEVOTIONAL GUIDE
🗓 Theme: KNOWLEDGE (Part 2)
📖 Text: John 8:32, John 14:6, Matthew 16:13-17
Memory Verse: “…Whom do men say I the son of man am?” Matthew 16:13
📖 Hymn 69: OPEN MY EYES, THAT I MAY SEE
Jesus asked His disciples in Matthew 16:13, “Whom do men say I the son of man am?” and what was their response? Every one of them had his own interpretation but to cut the long story short, this is what gave birth to this statement that was made by Peter; “Thou art Christ the son of the Living God.”
He told Peter, “you are correct, but it was not flesh and blood that revealed it to you but my Father who is in heaven’. Then He added, “upon this rock will I build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail”. Upon which rock? The rock of the revelation of who Jesus is! He is more than a Healer; more than a Miracle Worker because He is also the Truth. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
When you want to be a medical doctor, do you go to a commercial college? Where will you go to become a doctor? You go to a medical school. In the same way, if you are going to know who Jesus is, it will not be in a classroom anywhere. That is why in acquiring the knowledge of God; you come back to the Bible. Oh Child of God, get back to studying the word of God better than have been doing for it is then that your knowledge about this God can keep on improving and your life can conform into becoming more like that of Christ Jesus.
WORSHIP/PRAISE GOD AND THEN TAKE THE FOLLOWING PRAYER POINTS:
🙇♀1. Father, keep me abiding in Your truth. Keep me abiding in Jesus Christ.
🙇♀2. May I not get carried away by my search for and desire to own mundane things of this world and lose You, oh Lord Jesus Christ!
🙇♀3. Oh Lord Jesus Christ, I want to know You more and more. Cause me to be disciplined enough to study Your word and have the Holy Spirit reveal more of You to me.
