ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Wednesday 25th August 2021

TOPIC: MEET THE KING AND BE SAVED (I) TEXT: MATTHEW 9: 18 - 26 Today's devotion is about meeting the greatest person in this world. Whoever meets Him meets unlimited grace. In today's devotion, two people met Jesus Christ with different kinds of serious cases. The first person, a ruler, had faith, was humble and invited Him to go end lay hands on his dead daughter. This showed that He believed that the Lord is the giver of life, unlike the Jewish religious leaders who planned to kill Lazarus to stop others from believing in Jesus (John 12:10, 11). The second person was the woman who had been bleeding for twelve years. When she met the Lord, she didn't talk but simply touched the hem of His garment. She was isolated, being an unclean person. But her meeting with Jesus completely changed her situation. She touched Him with faith and was instantly healed (vs. 20-22). Believers must strive to meet Jesus Christ in the face of any difficult situations they find themselves. But we must come to Him with humility and faith.
