OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TUESDAY 5TH MAY 2020: ARE YOU AMONG THE FAITHFUL FEW?

THEME: ARE YOU AMONG THE FAITHFUL FEW? (DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE)

MEMORY VERSE: Isaiah 10:21

The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. 


BIBLE READING: MATTHEW 24:37-42 KJV

37. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42. Watch therefore; for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.











MESSAGE

As seen from yesterday’s study, there is an urgent need to change for the better. Yet, it is possible that only a few people will take up that challenge. Are you one of these faithful few?

From today’s memory verse, we can conclude that not all men have corrupted themselves, as such there will always be a remnant – a faithful few. They still remain holy and obedient to the Lordship of Christ in spite of the ungodliness in the world today.

In several passages of the Scripture, God talks about the faithful few who have been favored.

“Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” – Romans 11:5

We see from the Scripture above that to be among these faithful few, grace has a huge role to play. In today’s Bible reading, Jesus talks about how only eight people in the whole world were spared from the flood in the days of Noah.

This is a fearful thing, yet many people are taking the call for repentance with levity these days. We are no wiser than Noah’s generation, neither were they more sinful than the world is today. We have only enjoyed grace which according to Titus 2:12 should teach us to deny ungodliness.

Beloved, all men have sinned through Adam (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:15-17 ), therefore, you must repent if you haven’t, otherwise there would be repercussions. In Luke 13:5 , Jesus told the people of Galilee who did not accept the gospel that except they repented, they would all perish.

You must determine not to be among the corrupt people of this world. Separate yourself for Gods use (Romans 12:1-2); (2 Timothy 2:21 ).

While it may be true that some ungodly people are ‘flourishing’ in the world today, Psalms 73 says such is to their ultimate destruction. For us the faithful few, Psalms 1 and 15 must be our watchword.

And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
Oh be washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Are you washed in the blood
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?
Are they white as snow?
