 TREM Devotional 26 May 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Go The Extra Mile


TOPIC: Go The Extra Mile (TREM Devotional 26 May 2021)


‘’Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold…’’ 1 Peter 1:18 KJV


The kingdom of God is not a game of convenience. Think of it: Somebody paid the price with His own blood. It is not something you play with; it is serious business. God is calling every believer to a life of sacrifice. I challenge you today to go out of your way to serve God with all you heart, whether it is convenient or not. He deserves the best because He gave you His best- Jesus. The question you should ask yourself sincerely is: how much do I really love Him?


Remember that the scriptures say in John 3:16: ‘’for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son.’’ Child of God, there is no way you can demonstrate love without giving something. When God was to show us how much he loved us, he gave His only Son to die for our sins. Thank God for this great love; otherwise, where would you be today? In the same way, God wants you to spread His love to the world. If you truly love Jesus, then show it in your service to Him. Show it in evangelism. Show it as you lead your group. Show it in your relationship with your fellow G12 center members.


Many times, we pay lip-service to loving God. You cannot say you love God if you do not show His love to your world. Think of it, when last did you go through your wardrobe to look for very good clothes to bless someone with? When last did you enter a boutique to get a gift for someone who cannot afford it? Are you just consumed with ‘yourself,’ ‘me,’ ‘mine’ and ‘I’?


Your love for God must be total. How much do you love God? How much are you willing to sacrifice just to show you love Him? If there are areas that indict you, make amends today and love Him totally.
