DCLM DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 20, 2022 (POWER OF TRANSFORMING GRACE)
TOPIC: POWER OF TRANSFORMING GRACE
TEXT: Luke 8:1-4
1. And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God; and the twelve were with him,
2. And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
3. And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.
4. And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable;
“And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils.” – (Luke 8:2).
The account of Mary Magdalene in the New Testament demonstrates the depth of the power of Jesus Christ over sin and satanic forces. To think that a woman of this profile could be saved from sin, delivered from evil spirits and wordly entanglements showed evidently the transformative power of Christ in the lives of people who partake of His grace.
Mary Magdalene experienced the fullness of the touch of Jesus Christ for the salvation of her soul and deliverance from all works of the devil. Little wonder, she demonstrated uncommon love for the Saviour during His ministry on earth, and even after His death. She epitomised true love, care, commitment and consecration, which every believer should show towards Christ our Lord and Saviour.
The story of Mary Magdalene resonates daily in the New Testament records, showing us the nature of complete redemptive work that Christ has come to accomplish in the life of the vile sinner and the manner of response, which recipients of this glorious grace of God should portray.
It is said that to whom much is given, much is expected. If we want the best from God, then we must give Him first place in our lives. Many people experience inexplicable failures and loses in life because they have not truly accorded God the first place. The Master has granted us complete salvation as He did to Mary Magdalene and we should reciprocate His love with unalloyed loyalty and submission to His word and will.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Love so amazing demands our all!
