DCLM Daily Manna 9 March 2024 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — A Timely Admonition

TOPIC: A Timely Admonition (DCLM Daily Manna 9 March 2024)

KEY VERSE: “And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation” (Acts 2:40).

TEXT: Acts 2:29-40 (KJV)

29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

MESSAGE:

Flowing from the impact of the Spirit of God he just received, Apostle Peter admonished his listeners in that immediate congregation, especially, the young converts to avoid the danger of negative influence from the unbelieving people around them. He raised concern about the negative influences and ungodly conducts of the people around them.

Is our own generation different in any way to the period Peter first gave the message? Peter preached this stirring message that brought about 3000 new converts unto the Lord Jesus Christ. This group of new converts were admonished to keep themselves from the corruption that prevails in the world. They joined other believers, were taught by the Apostles and participated in prayer meetings and fellowship. These new believers in Christ desired to know more about Christ and it became obvious that they were experiencing the desired growth. The timely admonition assisted the converts to watch their association and relationship with the people around them lest they become polluted again. If you have just come to know the Lord, the exhortation will help you to become strong in the faith. If you are mentoring young converts, it is important to encourage them to guard their faith jealously in order not to allow the unbelieving populace around them to derail them. They must be taught to separate from old friends and acquaintances that can easily lure them back into their old lives.

A life not regulated by the dictates of the word of God stands to succumb easily to the pressure of this untoward generation. Our affection should be set on things above and not on things on earth.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
The true Christian passes through the world without smelling worldly.
