THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: FRIDAY, 26TH JUNE 2015.
THEME: ENDEAVOUR TO KEEP OPEN HANDS
TEXT: Hebrews 11:1-3
1 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

MEMORY VERSE:
If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. Deuteronomy 15:7-8

MESSAGE:
Givers never lack. He who keeps open hand will always have his hand full of good gifts. Our people say that a king that goes on a journey and his bag was filled with gifts received from the people he gave previously.
One of the qualifications of a church leader is that he will be able to welcome strangers to his house. Abraham entertained angels that were going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. It was after that entertainment that a promise of child was made to him and his wife Sarah. The Bible made us to understand that it is more blessed to give than to receive. When you welcome strangers and offer them hospitality there is greater blessing waiting for you.
As a Christian or a leader, it is important you plan for others who might be in need at one time or the other. Apart from accommodating and entertaining strangers you can help brethren who have no job by giving whatever you have to start selling even pure water. If you have the capacity to employ one or two you can do so. If you can give something to put a meal on the table of a needy family it is also good. As you do these God will bless you the more.


PRAYER POINTS:
* Pray that God should empower you so as to empower other people.

* Pray that God will bless whatever you give to a needy person.

AMEND YOUR WAYS:
If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8).
If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness,
kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent.
Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism?
Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4)
Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce
(A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman?
Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY:
If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me:
Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins.
Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.
I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior.
I surrender my life to you.
Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. 

AMEN!
