The Word

Saints of God Most High, hear God’s word for you today:

Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, in the likeness of ourselves; and let them rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the animals and over all the earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the earth.” (Genesis 1:26)

God said, Let Us, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the tame beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

The creation of man has been a thing of sorrow to the devil, who is also called the prince of the world, the adversary and the enemy of our soul.

God made man in His image but devil our eternal enemy visited man through temptation. Satan led Eve to failure but the victory over the enemy of our faith was won when Satan received his punishment. (Genesis 3:14)

Sin made man an enemy of God. Sin separated man from God. Sin brought man under the control and leadership of Satan.

Sin made man to become victim in the spiritual battle. For us to be victorious and completely cleansed from our sins, Christ Jesus has to made Lord of our lives.

We must set ourselves to the pathway to a blameless life and more so answer the call to a life of purity which is highly mandatory.

(1 Peter 1:15-16 / Isaiah 52:11 / Leviticus 11:45 / Hebrews 12:14)

Purity of life is a command from God. All through the Scriptures the clarion call of God unto His children is to be holy within and without. Without holiness of life a Christian believer cannot maintain a blameless life before the Lord.

God Almighty did not demand this experience in the land of Egypt or in the wilderness from the children of Israel.
But after they left, He commanded them to be holy as He is holy, and to live a life of separation.

This experience is a practical one that must be seen in our lives. Holiness should be seen in all manner of life conversation, comportment, deeds, thoughts and relationship with one another.

In all our services to the Lord, there must be purity of heart. Purity of life and heart, not just the head knowledge.

We must also recognise our spiritual inadequacies and crucify the flesh. (Galatians 2:20)

We must pray against unbelief and humble ourselves before God. After our salvation experience, we must seek God for sanctification experience as He promised. (Luke 1:73)

Be purified today in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!

Shalom and good morning.
Dr. Daniel O. C.
