Daily Fountain 2017 - Believers Yellow Paper

Thursday February 23

Bible Reading:     Rom. 6: 15 - 23

Topic:         Believers Yellow Paper

Every year, a few weeks to the exam, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) would send the Science Teachers, a guide to the Practical Examination.

That written guide contains basic information that would help the Science Teachers prepare the reagents, apparatus and specimens; and it was popularly called 'Yellow Paper"

And so whenever the yellow paper comes and the Science Teachers begin to teach in that direction, students paid greater attention because that was to determine whether they would pass the practical exam or not.

Today, our reading is instructing us to be mindful of the practical exam of daily holy living.

Wherever we have failed God by yielding ourselves negatively unto sin and ungodliness, it is because we have not read His Yellow Paper.

Today is a day of practical exam of living out the life of Christ and the Word of God is our "Yellow Paper," to direct us in all the issues of life.

As you study the "yellow paper", the World, circumstances and issues of life ate the practical exams where you prove that you have understood His Instructions in the Bible.

Lord, give me the grace to put into practice what You have taught me today, Amen.

Memory verse:   Rom. 6: 23
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord"
