TEXT: Matthew 3:13-17

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Genera Discussion

This year, write your plans with a pencil and allow God to hold the eraser. Draw your programmes and allow God make the necessary adjustment. In our text, Jesus came to John and asked him to baptize Him. (v.13) but John felt unqualified. In John’s view, it was not the right thing to be done. Jesus urged him to baptize Him in order to fulfill all righteousness (v.15). John surrendered to God’s mandate, baptize Jesus and God confirmed the baptism with a declaration (v.17).

Ephesians chapter 5:17 says, “Therefore, do not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”. Take time this year to seek the face of God before taking sensitive decisions. You do not waste time while waiting upon the Lord, rather you save time and also renew your strength. Find His will on how you will run your business, train your children, operate in your academics, serve in the place of worship, etc. John projected Jesus in his ministry. Through your character, messages, association and mode of worship,, let Jesus be projected. Be a reliable partner in God’s kingdom movement this year.

Prayer: Merciful Father, help me this year to totally surrender to your will.

TEXT: Matthew 4:18-22

18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

General Discussion

God knows you; He knows your strength and weakness. He has a plan for you and if you obey Him, He will work out His purposes for your life. Jesus told Peter and Andrew to leave their fishing business and follow Him so that He would make them fishers of men. He also called James and John-the sons of Zebedee – for the same assignment (vv. 21-22). When these men were called, they did not make any excuses as to why they would not answer the call rather they left at once and followed.

You are called in the works of the kingdom. Trust has been bestowed upon you to make disciples for Christ and God expects you to bring those people you are living into his kingdom. He expects you to influence the genuine repentance of all your co-workers, students, friends and family members. Do not betray this great trust. Set target for yourself and work towards your soul-winning target by constantly evaluating your progress. However, ensure that you first surrender your life to Jesus so that you do not end up working for Him without walking with Him.

Prayer: Dear Lord, consecrate me for your service in Jesus’ name. Amen.
