Memorise: Matthew 24:35 King James Version (KJV)
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Read: Matthew 5:17-20 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Open heavens 2019 Tuesday 21 May 2019 MESSAGE:
To explain the place of law and grace in our lives as Christians, one of my sons once said that the law teaches us godliness while grace gives us the power to do what the law commands. We can then say that law and grace work together for us to live acceptably before God. You cannot claim to be under the grace of God and live a lawless life, because those who live under Gods grace are subject to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1-2 ). You are a partaker of Gods grace because the Spirit of Lordship now lives in you and controls you to live by Christs commandments. On the other hand, you cannot obey the instructions of this Spirit of Lordship without the help of Gods grace. Why? It is because His standard is high and His ways uncompromising. This is the reason why Christ paid such a high price for us to gain access to Gods throne, where we obtain grace that helps us in this regard. Hebrews 4:16 says:
“”Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.””
Gods standard is entrenched in His word. No matter how much the world changes, the standards which Gods word sets for man to live by cannot be changed (Matthew 24:35 , 2 Timothy 2:19 ).Our Lord Jesus Christ in todays Bible reading said He did not come to destroy the law or the prophets; rather, He came to fulfil them by the grace He brought from heaven. His grace is more than enough for those who are willing to obey God, love Him and worship Him in spirit and in truth. Whatever the Lord commands, He gives the grace to do (Philippians 2:13 ). From the Lords teachings in Matthew 5:27-32 , it is obvious that His standard is much higher than the standard of the Law of Moses. This is because His standard establishes the will of God as it was in the beginning (Matthew 19:8 ). Thankfully, His grace is more than enough to help us meet this standard. For example, Christ brought the grace not only to avoid going into the act of sexual immorality but also to help us not lust after the opposite sex in our hearts (Matthew 5:27-28 ).
The law says we should not commit murder, but the letter of grace helps us not to be angry at all. The same thing applies to the issue of divorce. Jesus Christ taught against divorce, equating it with the sin of adultery (Matthew 5:31-32 ). Gods standards have not changed, and they will never change. Our love for God should motivate us to live by His standards. James 1:25 says:
“”But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.””
Let us continually look into the perfect law of liberty in order to please our God daily.
Father, please grant me the grace to live by your standard daily in Jesus Name.
Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Tuesday 21 May 2019
Sing Hymn 12: Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
1 Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.
O deeper yet, I pray,
And higher ev’ry day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.
2 Deeper, deeper! blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will. [Refrain]
3 Deeper, deeper! tho’ it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow. [Refrain]
4 Deeper, higher, ev’ry day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last. [Refrain]
5 Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue. [Refrain]
Open heavens 2019 Tuesday 21 May 2019 Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries. The life of Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a fulfilment of the scriptures in Zechariah 4: 10 which declare, “despise not the days of small beginnings”. Born in 1942 into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State located in the South-western part of Nigeria Enoch Adeboye often humorously states that his family was so poor that even the poor people called them poor. As a matter of fact, he unashamedly tells his congregation that he never owned shoes until he was eighteen years of age. What he possessed though were physical intangibles such as focus, consistency, diligence, ambition, a brilliant mind and a determination to succeed in life.
In 1956 Enoch Adeboye was admitted into Ilesha Grammar School, Ilesha, Osun State, Western Nigeria and as a youth he discovered a passion for books, and an aptitude for science and in particular the field of Mathematics. This led to an academic journey in the field of Mathematics against incredible odds including but not limited to finances, the Nigerian Civil War and academic politics. By the time he was done, Enoch Adeboye had obtained not only a Bachelors (BSc.) degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nnsukka, Nigeria in 1967, but also a Masters (MSc.) Degree in Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria in 1969 and 1975 respectively.
One of the motivations for these academic achievements was Enoch Adeboye’s passionate desire to become the youngest Vice-Chancellor (University President) of any one of the frontline Universities in Nigeria. It did seem that his academic ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, this was not to be as a greater career awaited him in the service of the Lord. In 1967 Enoch Adeboye got married to his beloved wife Foluke Adenike Adeboye (nee Adeyokunnu). Open heavens 2019 Tuesday 21 May 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – GOD’S STANDARD REMAINS
