Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is another scripture collage:

"He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.

Jesus said, "It is finished!" Bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. Father God, You made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for me, that I might become righteous in Him.

This people You have formed for Yourself; we shall declare Your praise. Now Your manifold wisdom might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which You accomplished in Him, Christ Jesus my Lord. In the ages to come You might show the exceeding riches of Your grace in Your kindness toward me in Christ Jesus.

Having believed, I was sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of my inheritance, to the praise of His glory. I am part of a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Your own special people, that I may proclaim the praises of You who called me out of darkness into Your marvelous light.

When Jesus’ work on the cross was finished, hope for life eternal with You, my Father, became reality. Thank You for sending Jesus to die and make this relationship possible. May my life proclaim Your praises."

Tuesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is another scripture collage:

"The Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Enable me, Lord, to trust in You with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding. If I lack wisdom, let me ask of You, God, who give to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to me. The foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. You, God, have chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise. That no flesh should glory in Your presence.

The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.

All bore witness to Jesus, Your Son, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. No man ever spoke like this Man! Because of You, Lord God, I am in Christ Jesus, who became for me Your wisdom—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.

May I always look to You, Lord God, for wisdom and understanding, that I might live in a way that pleases and glorifies You."

Proverbs 2:6; Proverbs 3:5; James 1:5; 1 Corinthians 1:25; 1 Corinthians 1:27, 29; Psalm 119:130; Psalm 119:11; Luke 4:22; John 7:46; 1 Corinthians 1:30

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

We are going to look at some scripture collages this week:

"You are my hope in the day of doom.

Loving Father, there are many who say, "Who will show us any good?" Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us. I will sing of Your power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning; for You have been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.

You hid Your face, and I was troubled. I cried out to You, O Lord; and to You, Lord, I made supplication: "What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!"

You say, Lord God and my Redeemer, that for a mere moment You have forsaken me, but with great mercies You will gather me. With a little wrath You hid Your face from me for a moment; but with everlasting kindness You will have mercy on me. Sorrow will be turned into joy. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

What hope I have in You, my Redeemer—

in You who brings joy after sorrow, who offers mercy after wrath,

who serves as my Refuge in trouble."

Jeremiah 17:17; Psalm 4:6; Psalm 59:16; Psalm 30:6, 8–10; Isaiah 54:7–8; John 16:20; Psalm 30:5

Fridays Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Revelation 1:17–18

"I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore."

Who is Jesus? He’s the Son of God and the Son of Man. He is the God-man and the man-God. He is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. He is God walking around in a body. He is God forever enthroned in heaven now at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is God.

One of the greatest illustrations of who Christ is and why we should listen to His words is found in the pro-logue of the Book of Revelation. John was in exile on the Isle of Patmos, and he saw this One to whom we are appealing and said, "When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, ‘Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen’ " (Revelation 1:17–18).

There is no one like Jesus Christ. He is the only one who has ever lived or ever will live who has a true grasp of the future. Because the Lord Jesus Christ as God lives in the time about which He speaks, He views all of time as if it were the present. He is the Eternal One, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at 1 John 4:11

"If God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."

A famous psychiatrist once said, "Love, true love, is the medicine for our sick old world. If people can learn to give and receive love, they will usually recover from their physical and mental illnesses."

Before Christ, the concept of love was a love for the best. If something was deemed worthy of love, it was loved. Christ dying on the cross changed all that, for He offered a love for which we are completely unworthy. Christ revealed God’s love. He lavished that holy love on people with no thought of whether they were worthy or not. Now when a Christian wants to know what real love is, he looks to the cross. Having experienced God’s love while yet a sinner, and having been transformed by that great love, the Christian recognizes the people around him as the objects of God’s love. They are love-starved, in need of the transforming power that only Christ’s love can bring.

Jesus set an example by giving Himself totally in love, with no thought of receiving anything in return. We, as Christians, are called by God to reflect that love to our spouses, our families, and our world. And the more we reflect it, the more we give it away to others, the more we experience it in our own lives.

Bro. Paul
