The Funeral Of My Church Holds This Evening

Saturday 12th September 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Acts 5:1-11
Topic:- The Funeral Of My Church Holds This Evening
Text:- Acts 5:9

A Pastor in America announced to his Church on Sunday morning, “THIS CHURCH IS DEAD”. The congregation looked startled! He then announced, “Come back to Church this evening for the funeral service of this Church.”
The bewildered Church still remained in shock, not knowing what was going on, but by the time it was evening service, the whole auditorium was packed, because people who weren’t even coming to Church regularly showed up to attend this special funeral service.
The pall bearers came in with a coffin, and the Pastor began the funeral service. Still in shock, the congregation didn’t really know what was going on.
Then the Pastor asked everyone to file out one by one to pay their last respect to the dead Church inside the coffin. Quickly, everyone filed out one after the other.
By the time each member looked inside the coffin, they saw a large mirror there, placed at the bottom of the coffin by this strange Pastor. The rest is history. Who died? Each member saw his faces in the mirror. The Pastor was referring to them all. They had all lost their passion and fervour for God.
Friends, has your fire for God died? Do you still feel any form of remorse when you tell the smallest lie? If you don’t feel anything at all, there’s a big problem. You’ve lost your fire.
And a fire-less Christian is powerless, weak and unimpactful. Get back your fire in the place of prayer and in deep study of the word.
If you can spend 5hrs on social media per day, why can’t you spend more on daily study of the Word and in prayer? If your fire has died, you are treading on a dangerous ground in this end time. And please preserve your fire. Fire is expensive to kindle.
Being born again is not an automatic door to a Christian life of fire. Fire stands for a burning passion for God beyond anyone else or any other thing in this world.
And nothing grows passion for God like prayer and meditation on the word of God. Don’t lose your fire on the laps of Delilah. Run away from that girl and from that man.
Don’t lose your fire on the platter of fornication and corruption, or any other kind of continuous sinful lifestyle. And please, don’t make fire extinguishers your best friends.
Love everyone, but make your closest friends, fire igniters. People whose prayer and word life will be of immense challenge to you. Fire is expensive to kindle and much more expensive to re-kindle!

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, make me a fire ignited and no more fire extinguisher again, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Blessed Saturday!

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.
