WITNESSLINE DEVOTIONAL FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY: DAY ONE

THEME:

******
Call to Discipleship

******

DAY ONE

Meditation

 Jesus lays down the conditions for discipleship. He makes these conditions known so that no one can claim like Jeremiah that God has seduced him. Jesus is not out to seduce or induce anyone that is why in Luke 9:58 he said to the man who said “I will follow you”, foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head. Are you ready to follow him? In the next seven days we shall be concerned with discipleship; understanding our call and responding accordingly.  

PRAYERS

1 Hail Mary 21 times and Thank you Jesus 21 times.

2 Bible Study: Luke 9:57-62

3 Lessons:

The only way to follow Jesus is totally.

Commitment to Christ cannot be based on an emotional, idealistic decision.

 Commitment to Christ cannot be a casual, whenever-you-find-the-time matter.

4 Silence (5 to 10 minutes) (write down your own lessons; learn to hear from God and write down whatever God says to you)

5 The Litany to the Precious Blood of Jesus (see below)

6 Intercessory Prayers:

As I obey the laws and teachings of the Lord, He shall bless me in many ways and set me on high above all nations of the earth in the name of Jesus.

As I make up my mind to follow Jesus; surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell with him forever.

The Lord gives me the land, and makes sure I am successful in everything I do. The Lord commands His blessing upon my life and my harvests shall be so large that my storehouses will be full in the name of Jesus.

 Father, in the name of Jesus, as I serve diligently in thy house and kingdom, cause me to flourish like the tree planted by the rivers of water.

Father, in the name of Jesus, cause me to become a manifestation of your wisdom, understanding, might and counsel. Let me become a solution to my generation in the name of Jesus. 

  1. Memory verse: Luke9:60

 “Let the dead bury their own dead; as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”
