BE A THEOPHILUS

SATURDAY 10TH MARCH, 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- ACTS 1:1-5
TOPIC:BE A THEOPHILUS
TEXT: ACTS 1:1

1. Who Was Theophilus?
Theophilus is the name or honorary title of the person to whom the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles are addressed. See Luke 1:3, Acts 1:1.
The name Theophilus means friend of God, or (be)loved by God or loving God, in the Greek language. No one knows the true identity of Theophilus and there are several conjectures and traditions around an identity.
In English Theophilus is also written “Theophilos”, both a common name and an honorary title among the learned (academic) Romans and Jews of the era.

2. Why are we to Be A Theophilus:
a. There was only one person mentioned in the Bible that was called a friend of God, [2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23], so, if the meaning of Theophilus is a friend of God, then you too can be a friend of God. See John 11:3.
b. Another meaning of Theophilus is beloved or loved by God, i.e. God loves you, so you must reciprocate the love back to Him by being born again. See John 3:16.
c. And lastly, God is asking you to be a Theophilus. If Theophilus can be a very important person to the extent that Dr. Luke can mentioned his name in both gospel according to saint Luke and the book of Acts, then God, has determined to you too important. See 1 Peter 2:9.

3. Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, I want to be Your friend, make me to be one, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, I know You love me, let me love You back in return, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, create Your fear in me, that I may live my life in total obedience unto You, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Beautiful Saturday!

God bless,
Pastor Tim.

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
