Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is another scripture collage:

"For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

You, Lord Jesus, were numbered with the transgressors. You were offered once to bear the sins of many. Jesus, You bore my sins in Your own body on the tree, that I, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by Your stripes I was healed. By one offering You have perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

But Jesus, because You continue forever, You have an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore You are able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through You, since You always live to make intercession for me. While I was still a sinner, You died for me. Much more then, having now been justified by Your blood, I shall be saved from wrath through You.

Therefore, since You suffered for me in the flesh, I arm myself also with the same mind, for if I have suffered in the flesh I have ceased from sin, that I no longer should live the rest of my time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

Your death gave me life, Jesus. Thank You."

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is a scripture collage for Wednesday morning:

"They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

Jesus, You were despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. In the world I will have tribulation; but I can be of good cheer, for You have overcome the world.

Such a High Priest was fitting for me, Jesus who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners … so that I may become blameless and harmless, a child of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.

Jesus of Nazareth, You went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with You. Therefore, as I have opportunity, may I do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Jesus, You were the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. As one of God’s children, I am the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. May I let my light so shine before men, that they may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven.

Lord Jesus, show me the good works You would have me do and use me to be Your light."

John 17:16; Isaiah 53:3; John 16:33; Hebrews 7:26; Philippians 2:15; Acts 10:38; Galatians 6:10; John 1:9; Matthew 5:14, 16

Tuesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Proverbs 18:10

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."

On January 25, 1934, German clergyman Martin Neimoller confronted Adolph Hitler face-to-face in the name of Christ. As a result, Neimoller was later seized by the Gestapo and held in solitary confinement.

On the morning of his trial, he was led from his cell by a green-uniformed official. As the two men walked through eerie underground passageways, Neimoller felt overwhelming fear.

Suddenly he heard a whispered voice: "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run to it and are safe." It was the guard, speaking under his breath.

With those words, Neimoller’s fear vanished. It was replaced by an indescribable peace that didn’t leave him, even during the dark days to come.

The Bible warns that prior to Christ’s return the days will be perilous (2 Timothy 3:1). But even when things seem to be in chaos around us, the name of our Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run to it and are safe. God’s purpose will guide us, His promises will sustain us, and His providence will keep us.

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at 2 Corinthians 5:21 this morning:

"He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

I once heard someone say that, of all men who ever lived, Barabbas should have the best understanding of vicarious substitution. Somebody died in his place. This murderer and thief walked out a free man, the crowds cheering his release. At the same time, an innocent Jesus was sentenced to die.

But Barabbas isn’t the only one who can say that Jesus died in his place. We can all say that Jesus Christ died on that cross for us, just as He did for Barabbas. In the words of 2 Corinthians 5:21, "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." Jesus died that we might live. He was bound that we who are in bondage to sin might be set free.

When word of his freedom came, he had to walk out of that cell to be truly free. Through Christ the cell door has sprung open. All we have to do is say, "I accept what Christ did for me, and I will now live in the light of that truth."

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is a scripture to close out the week:

"Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

May the word of Christ dwell in me richly in all wisdom.

I will keep my heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Death and life are in the power of my tongue. As the mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of justice, and Your law, Lord God, is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. So help me let no corrupt word proceed out of my mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

Lord, I can only speak the things which I have seen and heard in Your Word. I believe, therefore I speak.

If I confess Jesus before men, He will also confess me before You, my Father who is in heaven. With the heart I believe unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

May my heart of love and my knowledge of You, Lord God, overflow in words of praise and truth especially to those who don’t yet know You."

Matthew 12:34; Colossians 3:16; Proverbs 4:23; Proverbs 18:21; Psalm 37:30–31; Ephesians 4:29; Acts 4:20; Psalm 116:10; Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:10
