Daily Devotional: Secret Disciples

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Secret Disciples

And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. John 19:38. Read: John 19:38-42

Another thing that will make heaven a dramatic place on the last day is that, there are many secret disciples which are hidden from us, they love Jesus, serve and follow Him firmly but secretly for some factors. Elijah told God, ... And I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. This statement could mean, I am the only disciple who is living righteous, others are not, but God answered and said unto him, Go... anoint Hazael, Jehu and Elisha. Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. 1 Kings 19:14-18. Nicodemus was with Pharisees, but his heart was with Jesus. He joined Joseph of Arimathaea to buried Jesus body which His real disciples could not do.

I have a Muslim friend who got saved at the Campus, whenever she return back home, she still follow her parent to the Mosque for prayers. I asked her how she coupe. She said, whenever she is at the Mosque with them, she don't use to pray with them. How? I asked. Whenever they are praying, within me I always plead the blood of Jesus she replied. If you cannot correct people and tell them truth, you can as well keep shut. Don't write anyone off, rather, ask God to help you make it.

* Humble yourself and work out your Salvation with fear and trembling.
