Topic: I Die Daily
1 Cor.15: 20 – 31
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
1 Cor.15:31- I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
MFM Daily Devotional 30 August 2021 Outline
The natural response of mankind to death is that of dread and morbid fear. Majority of the people are scared to discuss any issue relating to death. But this is not so with the great apostle, Paul. In today’s Fire Scripture, Apostle Paul describe the all-sweeping effects of the death of Jesus Christ for us which has completely cancelled the consequences of the sin of man. The truth is that every true child of God wants to please Him and live a life of holiness and relevance to the kingdom.
However, there are lots of challenges both within and without which are ready to hinder our walk with God. The greatest enemy to the victorious Christian life is the ﬂesh. This is the adamic nature and the power of inbred sin which always manifest in form of adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, unloving attitude, anger, unfriendliness, evil imaginations, ungodly remarks, gluttony, quarrel etc.
These are the ladders the devil has been using to gain access into the believer’s life and to also weaken our commitment to the consecrated Christian life. The only way of victory is to follow the path of daily death just like the Apostle Paul.
To die daily means to daily say “no” to the inner cravings of the ﬂesh, say “no” to unholiness, say “no” to ungodliness, say “no” to the alluring power of the world and everything that is sinful. The more you are able to overcome the pressures of temptation, the more you are becoming dead to the power and the oppression of the ﬂesh.
Beloved, you cannot be a winner over the wicked forces confronting you if you are not willing to go through the daily experience of dying to self. This daily death is painful but it is the price you must pay if you want God to count you as a usable and a dependable vessel in this end times. May the Lord grant you the grace to die daily, in Jesus’ name.
Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know
O deeper yet, I pray
And higher ev’ry day,
And wiser, blessed Lord
In Thy precious holy Word.
2. Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus
And His perfect will.
3. Deeper, deeper, tho’ it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
4. Deeper, higher ev’ry day in Jesus
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His image
Perfected at last.
1. Fire of God, fall afresh upon me, in the name of Jesus.
2. Power of the ﬂesh over my life, die by ﬁre, in the name of Jesus.
3. Fullness of Christ, saturate my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. Inherited bondage in my life, die by ﬁre, in the name of Jesus.
5. Enemies within, die by ﬁre, in the name of Jesus.
6. Blood of Jesus overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.
7. Grace to run and win the prize, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
