Mountain Top Life MFM Daily Devotional 19th August 2021 Devotional (PMCH) Message Written By Dr D.K Olukoya With Prayer Points

Topic: Marks Of A True Disciple (1)

FIRE SCRIPTUREJohn 8:31-36

MEMORY VERSE
Luke 14:26 – If any man comes to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

MESSAGE

Many Christians believe that once they give their lives to Christ and are called Christians, they have fulfilled all they are required to do. This is wrong! Salvation is the first and major step into a lifelong walk with God and a relationship that continues in eternity. Having become a Christian you are expected to move into a deeper relationship with Christ, your Saviour, by becoming His disciple. This is a marked difference between being a Christian and being a disciple of Christ.

The focus of the church should be not only to win souls but to raise disciples for our Royal Master. Let us examine some of the marks of a true disciple of Jesus Christ. The first mark of a true disciple of Jesus has spelt out in our memory verse for today: “If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:26).

What the Bible means here is that for you to be a true disciple of Jesus, He must occupy the supreme place in your life. He must become your first love.

You must choose Him above your parents, spouse, children and all your other interests. Does Christ have preeminence in your life? If He does not, you need to change so that you will qualify to be His true disciple. The second mark of a true disciple of Jesus Christ is cross-bearing. Luke 14:27 says, “And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”

Christ was very clear and emphatic about His point here. What does bearing His cross mean? It means sharing His reproach, suffering and persecution for His sake. The cross is a symbol of shame and pain. Jesus foretold His disciples that they would be hated, persecuted, misunderstood and so on. Jesus Himself went through all these. He was falsely accused, condemned to death and crucified. The sinless and guiltless was hated, misunderstood and killed!

Beloved, a disciple is not greater than His master! I pray that God will give you the grace to be Christ’s true disciple, in the name of Jesus.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE
A surrendered life that is characterized by humility is the mark of a genuine disciple.

PROPHETIC WORD
Heaven will give you the undeniable rewards of a true disciple of Christ, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: I HAVE FOUND A FRIEND IN JESUS

  1. I have found a friend in Jesus,
    He’s everything to me,
    He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
    The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone
    I see All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
    In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay,
    He tells me every care on Him to roll: He’s the

Chorus

Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

  1. He all my griefs has taken, and all my sorrows bore;
    In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tower;
    I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
    From my heart, and now He keeps me by His power.
    Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal: He’s the
