Open Heaven Devotional 20th April 2023 MESSAGE:

My God is a very generous God. When He wants to save someone, He doesn’t just save the fellow’s soul, He wipes away all records of that person’s sin to make it as if he had never committed any. (1 John 1:7) says, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Believe me honestly, it does not matter how badly you have sinned in the past, God can still save your soul and use you for His glory.

After saving your soul, He doesn’t just leave you to figure out how you can remain holy by yourself, He gives you the ability not to sin again by changing your heart from a heart of stone to one of flesh.

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)

This is the real meaning of grace, when you become empowered by God to live holy. Beyond giving you the grace to live holy, God is so generous that He can even use you to save the souls of other people from going to hell. This is such a rare privilege because anyone you bring into the kingdom of God becomes your child in the Lord (1 Corinthians 4:15). When was the last time you won a soul to Christ? When was the last time you let God use you to snatch someone from the hands of the devil into the loving hands of Christ?

If you don’t extend the same grace that God has given you to become His child to your friends and family members, you are being wicked to them. God makes the feet of those who preach His word beautiful.

…How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:15)

Tell every unbeliever around you about Jesus Christ before it is too late.

ACTION POINT:
Today, minister the gospel of Jesus Christ to at least one unbeliever around you.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Kings 6-8
