Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day! Celebration Sunday!
Word for the Day:
“Devotion Brings Deliverance”
Text: Judges 13:5
“For behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. And no razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.”
“Devotion Brings Deliverance,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Our Commander Jesus Christ is the Angel of the Lord Who brought this message to Manoah’s barren wife. Like Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth; God had reserved their womb for Key Moments in History - Isaac, the Son of Promise; Samuel, the Prophet whose words never fell to the ground, all came to pass; and John the Baptist, the greatest of all men born from a woman. So it was with Samson, Devoted to God as a Nazarite from the womb to Deliver Israel from the Philistines. Samson’s Devotion would Bring Deliverance.
The Warrior’s Devotion to their Commander Brings Deliverance from the bondage of sin, not only for the Warrior but also for those who Hear and believe the Warrior’s message! Devotion bring connection with God and then the Power of Deliverance flows through the Warrior to others like “fruit from a branch connected to the Vine.
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5).
Samson’s Devotion was as a Nazarite, our Devotion is by Loving God Supremely; the Devotion of Supreme Love that obeys and imitates their Commander. This Practical Daily Devotion Brings the Fruit of Deliverance from sin’s bondage, as Samson brought Deliverance from the bondage of the Philistines.
Our Commander speaks to us as Paul spoke to young Timothy:
“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.
Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” (1Tim.4:12-16).
Our Devotion Brings Deliverance to us and to those who hear and believe the message of the Gospel we bring. Ooooh Rah!
