The Light Daily Devotional – No man is good

Focus: No man is good

The word for today 

One important fact to remember as you journey through life is that no man is good. The only times a man is good are when he denies himself and allows the Holy Spirit to find expression in his life!

Scriptural Reference

“Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.” Luke 18:18 -19 NKJV

A man’s nature finds it difficult to do God’s will. There is no limit to how the devil can use a man who has not received the grace to deny himself. David was said to have spared King Saul, who was desperately trying to kill him at a point in time. The same David who spared King Saul because he does not want to touch God’s anointed killed Uriah to cover his sins. David engaged in this terrible act because he failed to deny himself.

A man who failed to deny himself at any point in time is very dangerous. The Lord Jesus cautioned the young rich ruler when he called him a good teacher not because he was bad but wanted to give him the impression that only God is good in every man. Whatever you see men do is the prototype of what you can do. The only hope of Glory in a man’s life is Christ in him (Col 1:27). Hence, you must always find grace to deny yourself to allow the Holy Spirit to find expression in your life. Also, you must not forget the human factor in every relationship you find yourself in!

+ Does the Holy Spirit find expression in your life?

Prayer: Lord! Help me to always deny myself in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Emphasis: A man will only be good when he denies himself and the Holy Spirit finds expression in his life!

Have a Pleasant Day
