Topic: Don’t Be A Child Of Belial (2)

Fire Scripture
1 Samuel 2:12-17

12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord.

13 And the priest’s custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest’s servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;

14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.

15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest’s servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.

16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.

17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the Lord: for men abhorred the offering of the Lord.

Memory Verse
Deuteronomy 13:13 – Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known.

MFM Daily Devotional 7th July 2021 Outline

Yesterday, we established the fact that there are two categories of people in every society and every congregation: those who truly know the Lord and genuinely serve Him and those who do not know Him or are serving Him deceitfully (the children of Belial).

The above observations would lead us to ask some personal questions: Do you know the LORD? Eli’s sons even grew up in the tabernacle, but their lives had no proof that they knew the LORD. The same goes for you and me, growing up in a church cannot save us. “I am religious”, you might say. Eli’s sons were religious too, but religion cannot save you. “I am a spiritual person,” you argue. You can be “spiritual”, and still be spiritually dead. “I am a pastor, or an elder, or a deacon. I am involved in many church activities.” Eli’s sons were in a holy position, involved in many activities in the congregation of Israel, including regular sacrifices and offerings but it meant nothing without a personal relationship with God.

As we read in Matthew 7: 21-23, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name?” And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Jesus never knew them, because they never knew Him. So, again, my dear friend, ask yourself, “Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ?” The painful truth here is that one can claim to be serving God and at same time be on the fast lane to eternal perdition.

You can be a believer in Christ and at the same time be an irresponsible follower when you always allow the weaknesses of the human nature to find expression in your life. You need to repent today and ask Jesus to saturate every area of your life. No matter the level you are now in your walk with God, you can be as intimate with Him as you would like to be. What do you need to do?

Give your life to Christ and turn away from sins. If you are a believer already, re-dedicate your life to Him and pursue living a deeper life of holiness, yieldedness and service to Him. Read the word of God daily and apply it to your life. Also, pray without ceasing and make your faith in God rock-like.

Motivational Quote
Only God has the final say. When human beings and enemies speak and declare that a full stop has been put in place, God will prove them wrong and convert their evil full stop to a comma.

Prophetic Word
It is well with you, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN
Nothing But The Blood

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Chorus
Oh! Precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing, this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteiousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
