The Daily Fountain Devotional Church of Nigeria

THE DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL CHURCH OF NIGERIA (ANGLICAN COMMUNION)

DATE: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
READING: Colossians 4: 1-6

King James Version

1. Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

TOPIC:  MORE INSTRUCTIONS FOR BELIEVERS

Superiors usually give instructions to those under them. The aim of such instructions is to enable those under them to perform their work well and to free them from possible problems. In the last chapter of this epistle, Paul gave six important instructions to children of God. First he enjoins Christians to treat those who work under them with fairness and equity, remembering that God is the master over all men. He also emphasized the need to live a life of thanksgiving, with fervent prayers and watchfulness. Our prayers should not only focus on our needs but also for the extension of the Kingdom of God. We are also to pray for boldness for ministers and evangelists as they labour in God's vineyard. Paul also emphasized the need for wisdom in our daily lives as we relate with others especially non Christians, discipline in time management and discretion in speech.

These instruction shows that Christians are not free to live anyhow they please. We must be aware of our mission as Christ's ambassadors, tasked with the responsibility of representing God here on earth and extending His kingdom. Are you adhering to these biblical instructions?

Hymn
1 Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go,
my daily labour to pursue;
thee, only thee, resolved to know,
in all I think or speak or do.

2. The task thy wisdom hath assigned
O let me cheerfully fulfil;
in all my works thy presence find,
and prove thy good and perfect will.

3. Preserve me from my calling's snare,
and hide my simple heart above,
above the thorns of choking care,
the gilded baits of worldly love.

4. Thee may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes my inmost substance see,
and labour on at thy command,
and offer all my works to thee.

5. Give me to bear thy easy yoke,
and every moment watch and pray,
and still to things eternal look,
and hasten to thy glorious day;

6. For thee delightfully employ
whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given,
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heaven.

Orin I.O.M. 4

1. Oluwa mi, mo njade lo,
Lati se ise ojo mi;
Iwo nikanl' emi o mo,
L' oro, l' ero, ati n' ise.

2. Ise t' o yan mi, l' anu Re,
Je ki nle se tayotayo;
Ki nr' oju Re ni ise mi,
K' emi si le f' ife Re han.

3. Dabobo mi lowo 'danwo,
K' o pa okan mi mo kuro
L' owo aniyan aiye yi,
Ati gbogbo ifekufe.

4. Iwo t'olju Re r' okan mi,
Ma wa low' otun mi titi,
Ki mma sise lo l' ase Re,
Ki nf' ise mi gbogbo fun O.

5. Je ki nreru Re t'o fuye,
Ki mma sora nigbagbogbo;
Ki mma f' oju si nkan t' orun,
Ki nsi mura d' ojo ogo.

6. Ohunkohun t'o fi fun mi
Je kin le lo fun ogo Re:
Ki nfayo sure ije mi;
Ki mba O rin titi d' orun. Amin.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to be committed to advancing the gospel and also to radiate your nature in my relationship with others.
