21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 7 : The Great Commission


21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 7 : The Great Commission

A. Devotion - John 4:35-38

There is no better example in Scripture than Jesus when we think of reaching souls who have yet to know our Father. When we read the Gospels, there is no denying that our Saviour was single minded in His mission on earth.

In today's reading taken from John 4, we see Jesus talking to the Samaritan woman. She was surprised that a Jew would talk to her. However, Jesus knew that He needed to talk to her in order "to do the will of Him who sent me".

I am sure we have asked ourselves the common question, "What is God's will for my life?" We struggle to comprehend what God wants us to do and where He wants us to go. After Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well, the disciples found Jesus and they urged Him to eat. Jesus answered them simply: "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work." Jesus went on to say that the fields "are ripe for harvest" (v. 35). he then made a distinction between a sower and a reaper all through the gospels, we see Jesus sowing the seeds of Truth, yet it was the disciples who did the reaping. 

Maybe today, you are asking God what His will is for your life Jesus answers this clearly, that is, to do the work set out before us. Sow. Keep sowing. Keep watering. You do not know when that seed will grow into a beautiful tree that will reap a harvest.

B. Application / Self-reflection

  1. What did the woman at the well do when she heard that Jesus is the Messiah?
  2. Whose life can you sow into today?

The Danger of Spiritual Infancy (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:12)

Have you met people who refuse to grow up? There are some adults who prefer to remain as children because they do not want to take on adult responsibilities. Not only is immature behaviour unpleasant to observe or deal with, the consequences are often destructive. In Hebrews 5:11-14, the writer expresses his frustration that some members of the church were refusing to grow into spiritual maturity. They were no longer trying to understand God’s word (v 11). Instead of taking on the responsibility of teaching others as they themselves had been taught, they needed to be taught the basics all over again (v12). Therefore, they were unable to take on “solid food” which is for mature Christians, and they were not able to distinguish good from evil (v14) or to understand teaching about righteousness (v13). Spiritual maturity is a necessary part of our walk with God. Remaining as a spiritual infant means that you are not good at discerning right from wrong and you will have a hard time maintain


Daily Devotion Tuesday 22nd September  Isaiah 54 – GOD’S PROMISE FOR FRUITFULNESS AND BLESSING    This scripture is a beautiful promise of encouragement and affirmation to God’s people. If you have served God faithfully, but you feel discouraged, if you feel that your effort thus far has not borne any fruit, if you feel that you have been despised or looked down upon, this promise is for you.    God tells the “barren woman” to sing and shout for joy, because God will give her the desire of her heart and gift her with more children than she can imagine (v1). This is a prophecy for the increase and expansion of the nation of Israel through the birth of many children, and a promise that the city would be rebuilt. The barren woman could also mean a person or a church that is feeling discouraged, unfulfilled or foolish. Perhaps you feel foolish and discouraged for putting your trust in God for so long, but you have not experienced the results that you expected? If you are feeling discourage

A prophet prophesies and the church fully obeys (Acts 11:27- 12:4)

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul. 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. 3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. When Jewish believers from Cyprus (Europe) and Cyrene (Liby
