November 18 – Every Christian Must Have Discipline

Daily Bible Life

Anyone who desires to be a follower of Jesus Christ must be disciplined. The person must be verse in Bible knowledge and also portray a godly virtue! Jesus instructed his followers, “…If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:23-26).

 

Lesson:

Christianity is not a wishy-washy religion that anyone can practice as he or she likes. Christianity is a religion that promotes godly characters. A child of God must have disciplined and duly comply with the laws of God to qualify for his kingdom. In order words, a person who aspires to go to heaven must follow the teachings of Jesus Christ to the letter. He or she must be dead to “Self.” The fellow must also have resolute faith in God (Since it’s impossible to please God without faith). Christ- The Master said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me – Luke 9:23”.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please make me a sound Christian – A person who is spiritually disciplined! Help me to be dead to “self” and also help me to abstain from any activity that can cause me to violate your laws. Please empower me by the Holy Spirit to live up to your standard and ever qualify for your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
