Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 10:4

"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes."

Christ did in His perfect flesh what the flesh of mortal man could never do—keep the Law of God. There is nothing wrong with the Law—it is just and holy and good (Romans 7:12).

The problem is sinful human flesh. We have no ability to keep God’s holy law. And if one is going to establish his own righteousness it means keeping 100 percent of God’s requirements according to the Law. To break the Law in one point is to break it all (James 2:10). Therefore Christ came into the world to do what we could not do—satisfy the requirements of the Law in order to win righteousness for those who would receive it as a free gift instead of trying to earn it themselves.

Christ is the end of righteousness for all who believe. Are you one who has believed? If so, let your life become an "I love You" to God, thanking Him for what Christ has done for you.

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is a scripture collage:

"The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Lord God, You commanded that the Passover lamb shall be without blemish. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel should kill it at twilight. And they should take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. You promised that when You saw the blood, You would pass over those homes. Jesus’ blood of sprinkling was spilled, and Christ, my Passover, was sacrificed for me. Thus He was delivered by Your determined purpose and foreknowledge, Lord God … and according to Your own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.

I have redemption through Jesus’ blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Therefore, since Christ suffered for me in the flesh, I arm myself also with the same mind, for I have suffered in the flesh and 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.

May I honor Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of my sin, by dying to myself and living for Your will, my gracious and merciful God."

Revelation 13:8; Exodus 12:5–7, 13; Hebrews 12:24; 1 Corinthians 5:7; Acts 2:23; 2 Timothy 1:9; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 4:1–2

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Psalm 119:15

"I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways."

Most of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about God. We go to church on Sunday and we sing the songs and we talk the way Christians talk, but we don’t give God the attention He deserves. We don’t give Him the concentrated attention of someone who is trying to get to know and get close to another person.

But a relationship with God is similar to a relationship with a human person. If we want to have a meaningful relationship, we must spend time getting to know that person. We must spend time talking with and listening to that person. We can’t be close to someone if we don’t know who they really are.

God tells us in the Bible who He is. Not only that, but He tells us how much He wants us to know Him.

The more you know God, the more you will love Him. And the more you know and love Him, the more you can celebrate Him in the way He deserves. And the only way to have that relationship is by faith in Jesus Christ, our great Apostle, High Priest, Saviour, Redeemer, Justifier, Sanctifier and Friend!  CONSIDER JESUS!!!!!

Tuesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 10:17

"Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

It’s impossible to have faith unless the mind embraces that information which comprises the gospel message. There are specific facts which must be embraced. Faith is not just a warm feeling that comes over you on a bright, sunny day. How would anyone in Seattle or Alaska ever get saved? No, faith is more than a warm feeling. It is the appropriation of certain facts about a man named Jesus.

Gaining perception means you have perceived something. And that "something" is the facts of the gospel message—objective, quantifiable, expressible information. The Bible speaks about false gospels, which means someone has the facts wrong, purposefully or accidentally. So the truth is what has to be perceived and received as "step one" in gaining faith. And that truth comes by hearing the Word of God.

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 5:1

"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."

True peace gives not only a calm exterior, but a very quiet inside as well. Peace seems to be an elusive quality that everyone chases after and few people find.

Romans 5:1 says, "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God." What does that mean? Is God my enemy? Have I been at war with God? God is holy and humans are sinful. They are on different sides. As creatures apart from God, we are at enmity with God.

But the Bible says God provided Jesus Christ that we might have peace with God. I see that picture so beautifully illustrated by the cross itself. Pointing up to heaven, it pictures that Jesus Christ, the God/Man, reached up and took the hand of the Father. Pointing down toward earth, it pictures that Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, reached down and took hold of fallen human beings. With one hand in the hand of God and the other hand in the hand of man, the only unique personality who was God and man brought the two together and made peace between God and man. He is our peace. He is the Prince of Peace because He is the One who solved the enmity between us and God. Accept Him and you have peace with God.

Bro. Paul
