MFM Devotional 28 September 2021 for Tuesday Outline

The gospels recorded the story of Pilate, particularly in relation to the trial of our Lord Jesus Christ and the release of a prisoner, according to the Jewish laws at that point in time. This man knew the truth, was warned by his wife, saw no justifiable reasons for declaring Jesus guilty, yet he yielded to the pressure from the people.

He sought the favour of men against his conscience and the Truth. He was close to being saved, but he missed it. If only he realised that he was writing eternal history, even his own destruction. There are still many Pilates around, even in the church. Christians that get easily manipulated, such that they fall into compromise.

Men-pleasers, fame and popularity seekers, forgetting that it is God that promotes and celebrates a man. Unfortunately, in his ignorance, Pilate washed his hands! An outward show of, “my hands are clean”. He had forgotten or was ignorant of the fact that God does not look at the face of a man, but his heart. No amount of washing of hands can cleanse anyone from guilt or the consequences of his or her sins.

Only the blood of Jesus can! The problem here is the conscience! What is that other voice that is louder than your conscience? Watch it! It is a distraction and a destroyer. Your conscience is the police of your mind, telling you what is good or bad. Listen to it! Refuse to yield to the voice of sin and temptation. Don’t be a people- pleaser, but a God seeker and pleaser. You are created to do that which is pleasing unto Him.

Are you afraid of people as against God? Pray for boldness to stand for the truth at all times, even when you may need to stand alone. Stephen did. He was stoned to death, but he saw Jesus. The truth is naked, but lies wear many coats to cover up. Embrace the truth and experience peace and the fullness of all that is in Christ. Fear has torment! How long will you stand against the truth and die in torment.

Either in church, in your family or at your work place, stand for Christ and for the truth. Those who hailed you today will pull you down tomorrow. Jesus is the only friend that will never forsake you!

Motivational Quote
A compromising life is unstable and insecure, liable for eternal destruction.

Prophetic Word
I pray for you to receive the discerning power to distinguish between the voice of truth and that of deceit and destruction, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN
Who is on the Lord’s side?

1. Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers,
Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side?
Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Saviour, we are Thine.

2. Not for weight of glory,
Not for crown and palm,
Enter we the army,
Raise the warrior psalm;
But for love that claimeth
Lives for whom He died;
He whom Jesus nameth
Must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side
