DCLM Daily Manna 24 February 2019 – A More Excellent Way

Topic: A More Excellent Way [DCLM Daily Manna 24 February 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]

Text: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (KJV)

Key Verse: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity(1 Corinthians 13:13).


The world’s notion of love is at variance with heavenly love, which transcends the loose definition of love in its filial, limited and selfish perspectives. God-like love is what a writer calls “true love to God and man, a benevolent disposition of mind towards our fellow Christians, growing out of a sincere and perfect devotion to God”.

This chapter dwells on charity (love). It is meant to correct the wrong notion the Corinthian Christians had over the possession of spiritual gifts as “all in all”. The thrust of the message is that, a mere possession of those gifts does not necessarily portray a higher spiritual stand before God. Gifts not ministered with perfect love is vain and worthless. Love is a virtue that makes other gifts meaningful and useful. God is love, and if you would love, you must abide in Him and He in you.

The essential virtue, capable of producing the greatest impact with spiritual gifts is charity. What are its components? It is patient, kind, not inflated with its own importance. It does not brag and knows no enemy. It does not behave itself unseemly, neither is it temperamental. This charity rejoiceth in the truth, finds no pleasure in evildoing and does not hold on to memory of any wrong against it. It is all enduring absolutely trusting, bears everything with triumphant fortitude and never for once, cease to hope.

Every other gift will dry up and soon be forgotten. But love is convincingly permanent, overwhelmingly complete and incontrovertibly supreme. A writer once said that “faith without love is cold and hope without love is grim. Love is the fire which kindles faith and is the light which turns hope into certainty”.

Thought For The Day: Love is supreme; Jesus’ love proves this.

The Bible In One Year: Luke 20-21

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
