Anglican Daily Fountain 8th March 2024 (Devotional Today)

Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: ARE YOU REALLY WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE

TEXT: John 8: 31-47(KJV)
8:31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
8:32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
8:33. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
8:34. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
8:35. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

8:36. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
8:37. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
8:38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
8:39. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
8:40. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

8:41. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

8:44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
8:45. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
8:47. He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

Anglican Daily Fountain 8th March 2024 STUDY:

STUDY: Jesus said to the Jews,“If God were your father, ye would love me and do the works of Abraham (John 8:39-42). These Jews had claimed to have Abraham as their Father but failed to love and do the works of Abraham which were counted for him as righteousness. Today, many followers of Christ still dishonour God’s word and claim to be children of God (1 Sam.2:30).

Are you one of such people? If you are a Christian, but the fruits you bear do not tally with those of the Holy Spirit (Gal 5: 22-25), it means God is not your father but Satan. If your spiritual eyes are dim, you may not recognise the truth. More importantly, a carnally minded son or daughter is likely to lose both paternal privileges and rights just like the prodigal son (Luke 15: 11-32).

Are you still under the management of the devil or perhaps, you have lost your sonship through carelessness, peer pressure, love of money, inordinate desire for positions or power, wrong association, etc? Our God is gracious. Repent and ask for forgiveness with godly sorrow. Your glory will be restored. Eternal life awaits you if you overcome the devil’s end-time agenda. Pray that the tricks and plans of the enemy over you will fail in Jesus’ name.

PRAYER: Lord, please be merciful and deliver me from the power of the flesh and devil, Amen!
