Tuesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Colossians 2:10

"You are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.}

It appears from the information in the Bible that Michael is the protecting and fighting angel, and Gabriel is the preaching or announcing angel. Each of them has his own job description and carries out God’s will in perfection.

Our God is a God of order and organization. That characteristic of God is reflected in the angelic realm. God has set up an authority structure within the universe, within the church, within the family, within human government; and all these lesser authorities are in submission to the greater authority of Christ Himself. The Bible tells us we are complete in Him, "who is the head of all principality and power" (Colossians 2:10).

God is able to respond to our needs and the challenges of our lives because He is a God of power and order. He is able to do what is necessary, and His angels are set up to respond to His every dire

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 1:1

"Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God."

When we meet people for the first time, frequently in addition to stating our name we will identify our occupation or profession. Our identity is closely linked to what we do.

Paul introduced himself in the Book of Romans by stating, "Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God."

Paul saw everything in his life through the lens of his slavery to Christ. Outwardly, he wrote as a slave of Caesar, but inwardly he considered himself a bondslave to Jesus Christ. To Paul the term servant was a title of dignity and humility. There was no greater position than to be a servant of Jehovah God.

We all would do well to remember that God did not save us to become sensations, but rather to become servants.

Bro. Paul

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at 2 Thessalonians 2:15

"Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle."

Paul says, "Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

The daily news can discourage us. But in the midst of it all, there is Jesus and His encouragement. We need to cultivate our relationship with Him until He is not just one of the things in our life, He is the one thing in our life—the focus of who we are.

"Comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work," Paul goes on to say. This is not the time to wear a white robe, sit on a fence, and passively wait for the Lord’s return. This is a time to use the powers and energy you have and get busy for God.

The most simple objective of Christians is not only to go to heaven, but to take as many people with us as we can. Share the gospel, teach children, build up one another, strengthen one another, encourage those who are fallen, and reach out to those who are hurting.

In every good work, "occupy till I come" (Luke 19:13 kjv), said the Lord. This is no time for idleness. This is a time for us to seek the truth and live it out every day

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 12:19 tlb

"Dear friends, never avenge yourselves. Leave that to God, for he has said that he will repay those who deserve it."

The third movie in the Star Wars series was originally titled Revenge of the Jedi. Several months prior to the release of the film, many promotional materials were sent to movie theaters and chains across the country.

Then someone suggested to director George Lucas that if the Jedi knights were indeed agents of goodness and peace, they would not be motivated by revenge. Lucas thought about it, then agreed. Even though a title change would mean a substantial cost in redesigning film titles and replacing promotional materials, Lucas retitled the film Return of the Jedi.

In our culture, vengeance is not an uncommon concept. When someone does us wrong, our immediate reaction is to want to get back at them. If we are to be Christlike, though, we must give up our vengefulness.

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at James 4:4

"Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God."

When Luciano Pavarotti was a boy, his father introduced him to the wonders of song. He urged Luciano to work very hard to develop his voice. Taking his father’s advice, Luciano because a pupil under Arrigo Pola, a professional tenor. He also enrolled in a teachers college. On graduating, he asked his father, "Shall I be a teacher or a singer?" His father replied, "If you try to sit on two chairs, you will fall between them. For life, you must choose one chair."

Luciano chose one. After seven years of study, he made his first professional appearance. After another seven years, he reached the Metropolitan Opera. He went on to say, "Now I think whether it’s laying bricks, writing a book—whatever we choose—we should give ourselves to it. Commitment, that’s the key. Choose one chair."

In regard to your spiritual life, you must also make a choice. Will you serve God or the world? You cannot be faithful to both. For if you choose to be a friend of the world, you automatically become an enemy of God. There is no room for split alliances, no room for a divided heart. You must choose one chair.

Bro. Paul
