OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional For 25th April 2023
TOPIC: Let It Go
TEXT: Do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 13:14
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Romans 13:11–14
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 21–22, Luke 18:24–43
But he was still enslaved by lust. He knew he couldn’t turn to Jesus without turning from sin, and he still struggled with sexual immorality. So he prayed, “Grant me chastity . . . but not yet.”
Augustine stumbled along, torn between salvation and sin, until finally he had enough. Inspired by others who had turned to Jesus, he opened a Bible to Romans 13:13–14. “Let us behave decently . . . not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality . . . . Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.”
That did it. God used those inspired words to break Augustine’s chains of lust and brought him “into the kingdom of the Son . . . in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:13–14). Augustine became a bishop who remained tempted by fame and lust, but he now knew whom to see when he sinned. He turned to Jesus. Have you?
REFLECT & PRAY:-
What’s keeping you from giving your life to Jesus? How might your life change if you let it go?
Dear Father, let nothing come between me and You.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and clease me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
