    ALL IS VANITY

    Ecclesiastes 1:1-11

    King Solomon went through a lot of things. He tried seeking for fulfillment, career, achievement, materialism, alcohol, pleasure, even wisdom. His conclusion? All is vanity. Are you in the same shoe as King Solomon? You actually want fame, wealth to enjoy your life, go to parties, put on the latest fashion. My dear, just know in this study today that life without Christ amounts to nothing. It is all vanity as the Preacher says.

    For your life to have meaning or purpose, you must learn to seek and put God first in everything you do; and to build a healthy and lasting relationship with him. Mathew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and other things shall be added unto you”.

    Dear Reader, what are you seeking for? Build your relationship with Christ let him take care of your needs and wants.

    MEDITATION:

    Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, “vanity of vanities all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Ask God for mercy in way you have been seeking for pleasures of this world.
    2. Pray that God will help you to set your affection on things that are eternal and not in vain things of this world.
    3. Pray that He will help you trust in him to take care of your burdens and daily needs..

     DELIGHT IN THE LORD

    Romans 7:14-25

     

    Delight has to do with something that gives you great pleasure, joy and something you much love and cherish. If there is anything you should delight on, it is on our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith.

     

    Dear reader, what will give you great and pleasure is doing the will of God. Occasion will come when you want to do the right thing yet you find it difficult and something you do things that you do not want to do which are wrong; yet you do them but not willingly. It is not you that is acting; it is the sinful nature of the flesh.

     

    It is important to plainly note that serious war is going on inside you. The flesh is always at war with the spirit. Each trying to have dominion over the other. But b the time you totally commit your life to God and delight always in the Lord, you will definitely overcome the flesh and its war. Nothing good comes out of your flesh. No wonder the Bible says; “for that which I do allow not; for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I” (Romans 7:15). The only way to overcome the power of flesh is deliberately and genuinely allows the Lord Jesus to lead you in all your activities.

     

    MEDITATION:

    I think God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin (Romans 7:25)

     

    PRAYER POINT:

    1     Genuinely confess all your wrong deeds to God now and ask His for mercy.

    2     Ask Him to take the centre stage of your life in every way.

    3     Pray that His law be your delight every day of your life.

    DEAD TO SIN

    Romans 6:1-5

    Through the grace of God we are set free from everlasting punishment but there is a big question, shall we continue in sin because of His grace? The answer is NO. God forbid. The day you received Jesus Christ into your life, sinful nature was put to death and buried; you must do your best to see that they no longer surface anymore. As Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the father, so also will you live a new life because you are raised with Him.

    You can only remain dead to sin if you do not permit sin your life anymore. We must be dead to sin and be alive in Christ who has set us free by taking our place on the cross. He died the death meant for us that we might live in glorious liberty He has set before us.

    If we continue to live in sin then we will become dead in Christ and the grace of God that abounded to us will be in vain but if we believe and allow the power that resurrected Christ to work on us, then the grace of God is able to make us overcome the sinful nature in us.

    MEDITATION:

    God forbid, how shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? (Romans 6:2)

    PRAYER POINT:

    1     Confess your sin to God; ask him to help you not to go back to them anymore.

    2     Ask Him for grace to overcome pressure to sin.

    3    Ask Him for grace to be a true born-again child of God.

    YOU STILL NEED THE GOSPEL

    Romans 10:19-24

    One always need the things that are essential or very important to him. There are the essential things that a person must have such as shelter, food and cloth.

    Another very important thing you need as a matter of urgency is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Your safety on this planet depends on the quality of the gospel you possess. Many have not realized this; they thought that life depends on the abundance of wealth they possess.

    The Israelites never realized this, but Apostle Paul did and it became a burden to him that his brethren earnestly need the gospel so as to be saved. Every wise and reasonable human being needs the gospel to enable him or her to know the mind of Christ. The gospel will bring you to the point of having right standing with your creator. It helps you to believe in Jesus Christ who is the end of the law.

    It will help you live a holy life rather than obeying just the law made by man. The gospel will make you wise as to know and choose to do right at all times. The gospel will save you from trouble of this life and eternal destruction. It will Help you never to be ashamed as the scripture has said: “… whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 10:11). You still need the gospel as a sure foundation to prepare you for the kingdom.

    MEDICATION:

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every that believeth; to the Jews first, and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16).

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Ask God to help you make the gospel of Jesus Christ your priority in life
    2. Pray that God will help you to obtain the  benefits of the gospel

    AN ADVOCATE OF THE GOSPEL

    Romans10:14-17

    An advocate is a person who supports or speaks in favour of somebody or of a public plan or action.

    It is your responsibility to publish Jesus Christ wherever you are and your life will not remain the same. The ability to speak in favor of Jesus depends on your belief and faith in God. The challenges are not in hearing but are in doing that which you have heard. How much of the word you heard have you put into practice? It is the strong conviction in you that will spur your action. The feet of those that preach the gospel are beautiful (Romans 10:15b). remember, for you to be approved of the God you must run away from evil .and carry the gospel to your neighborhood and preach it to everyone you may come across.

    The ingredients increase your faith include the following:

    Hearing the word always (Romans 10; 17). Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together (Hebrews 10:25) it could be conferences, seminar, retreat or pray meetings, weekly activities etc. also, mediate in the word of God day and night.

    (Psalm 1:1-2)

    MEDITATION:

    How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things. (Romans 10:15b)

    PRAYER POINT:

    1. Ask God to help you to be his advocate.
    2. Ask God to help you to know and practice al the ingredient that will help you believe and have faith in him.

    GOD’S EVERLASTING LOVE

    Romans 8:31-39

    The love of God for a true believer is everlasting. It has neither limit nor ending. He is ready to give all for those He loves and His love is incomparable. If God is with you, no power or authority can pull you down or destroy you. Romans 5:8 says: But God commanded His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”

    You are a victor if you remain in Jesus Christ. Jesus gained the decisive victory for you on the cross. Despite the things that may come to test your faith, remain in Him for He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you (Hebrew 13:5b).

    If you fail in your spiritual life, you are responsible because the divine grace and love of God has been made available for you. The trouble or the insatiable nature of man cannot separate you from God’s love. What can separate you is when you don’t remain in Christ Jesus. The love of God is only revealed in Christ Jesus. Accept Christ today if you have not done so. Apostle Paul asked: “who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness or peril or sword? (Romans 8:35). The essence of this is to let you know that there is nothing in this life that can separate you from the LOVE OF GOD. Be warned!

    MEDITATION:

    Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Romans 8:37).

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Ask God for grace to love him just as He loved you and sent His only son Jesus to die for your sins.
    2. Appreciate Him for His great love towards you and ask Him to help you remain in His love.
    3. Ask Him for help to overcome the cares, trouble and the pleasures of this life that end to separate you from His love.

    DO NOT BE HAUGHTY

    Romans 11:19-24

    Haughty means behaving in an unfriendly way towards others people because you think that you are better than them.

    There is this song we normally sing: Abraham blessing are mine……

    How can his blessing be yours when you do not love God, you undermine people, you undermine people, and you might be unfriendly and disobedient. You must be careful not to brag as a child of God, depend on his grace and follow it till the end of your life. Never deviate from the truth and keep looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2)

    In the course of running this heavenly race, never boast for it is not by your power that you are standing till today. It is just by his grace. Israel was detached from the original olive tree that you and I may be grafted in, so we do not have any right to boast that we are better than others. We should rather run race with fear and trembling. We should also be mindful of the trials persecutions and distractions that are always on our way to heaven. God is both kind and severe. He is kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness but will be severe if you disobey his commands.

    God’s arms are widely open to accept and receive you if you learn to be humble and fear him.

    MEDITATION:

    Pride goeth before destruction and haughty spirit before a fall.

    (Proverbs 16:18)

    PRAYER POINT:

    1. Thank God for today’s lesson and ask for his mercy in any way you have exhibited any ungodly behaviour.
    2. Ask God to help you to be friendly and humble.
    3. Ask him for grace to fear him and keep his commands
