Starting Well And Ending Woefully [1]

Sunday 19th August 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Matthew 11:1-19

Topic:- Starting Well And Ending Woefully [1]

Text:- Mark 1:6

Starting well and ending it woefully is about the story of John the Baptist, of his greatness and of his fall. We are discussing this message so as to know that it is not your beginning well that matters, but you ending it successfully. There are many in the Bible that fit into this message and not only John the Baptist. For example, Saul the King in the book of 1 Samuel and Judas Iscariot in the four Gospels.

The parents of John the Baptist are worthy of emulation. They were perfect in their way of life; they served God in sincerity without compromising their faith in Him, despite their problem of bareness. See Luke 1:5-23.
When John too came to the scene, he was distinct, even commended by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. He was a great man and started well because of the seven notable remarks concerning him.
Firstly, he was the first person to start baptizing people, [no wonder he was named like that]. See Luke 3:2-6.
Secondly, he was the one that baptized Jesus, the Savior of the whole world i.e. he baptized the Baptizer. See Mark 1:7-10.

Prayer Points:-
1. I come to Your throne of God for forgiveness, cleansing and mercy over all my sins and transgressions, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh God, as I confess my sins and shortcomings, wash me thoroughly with Your blood, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh God, I refuse to start well and end it woefully, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

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.
