MESSAGE: Open Heavens DEVOTIONAL | RCCG | 16th August 2022 — letter to The Sardis Church 1

Historical records have it that the city of Sardis was besieged and overpowered by various nations at different times, primarily because the inhabitants were not as watchful as they should have been. This same carelessness that was prevalent in the city had entered the Church. Except for a few people in the Church in Sardis who had not soiled their garment, there was no good thing for Jesus to say about them. Jesus said they should be watchful and strengthen the things that were remaining and about to die (Revelation 3:1-3).

These people were slack in upholding their faith. You cannot be a true Christian if you are not disciplined. Any Christian who is lazy about their faith will soil their garment. John 5:17 says;

But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

Some Christians are so lazy that they offer Pastors money to pray and fast for them. God will not accept such fasting and prayer. If you cannot fast and pray by yourself, you don’t read your Bible, you don’t attend fellowships, you don’t work in the vineyard of God, you don’t evangelise, then you are dying spiritually. It is only a matter of time before sin creeps in and you find yourself back in the world. If you want to stand firm in Christ until the end, you must be watchful!

Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. – (1 Corinthians 10:12)

What are the things that you must watch out for as a Christian?

You must watch against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11). You must watch against temptations (Matthew 26:41). You must watch out against false teaching by reading your Bible yourself (Acts 20:29-30). You must watch out against sub-standard or lazy service to God because He will judge your service (Revelation 3:2); Lastly, you must watch out for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ because no one knows the date or the time that He will come (Matthew 24:42-43).

Christians must be disciplined and watchful.

Open Heavens DEVOTIONAL | RCCG | 16th August 2022 Hymn 6 – Ho! my comrades, see the signal

1. Ho, my comrades, see the signal, waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh.

Refrain:
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By Thy grace we will.”

2. See the mighty host advancing, Satan leading on,
Mighty ones around us falling, courage almost gone!

3. See the glorious banner waving, Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe.

4. Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near,
Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 37 – 40

Dear God,
I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
