Comforting or Comfortable?

2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 says: “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of…

Resolve to Resolutions

It’s that time of year – Christmas is once again a year away, and it’s time for us to celebrate the new year!  I know that many people think it makes no sense to make new year’s resolutions, but I always enjoy making them.  Although probably the vast majority of the resolutions we create every…

A Lame Man Healed

There’s a lot to learn from the story about the lame man being healed – from the lame man himself, to Peter and John, to all the people who witnessed this miracle. The faith these apostles showed speaks volumes of their personal relationships with God. Not only their faith, but their witnesses were undeniable. We…

An Attitude of Worship

Recently I stumbled across a verse that has really spoken to my heart. Oftentimes I – and probably you too – find a verse that I am truly blessed by that is primarily meant to mean one thing, but to me, it has a completely different meaning. This is the case for this devotion’s verse.…

The Love of God

The love of God – those four words alone form a more than sufficient idea to ponder on today!  There truly is no end to God’s love!  As the Bible tells us in Psalm 103:12 “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”  That’s how much…

Lucky or Blessed?

With St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this month, I’ve been thinking lately about how people say they are lucky. You hear the phrase “the luck of the Irish” and that finding four-leaf clovers give you luck.   Well, I try my best not to say that I am lucky or unlucky, because for us Christians, we know…

Love All

I was thinking what the topic of today’s devotion could be about.  There are SO many ideas when it comes to God, the Bible, Jesus, and the list continues!  Then, I fixed my eyes on a new water bottle I got from the local Christian bookstore with the word “Love” on it and John 13:34.  That…

God’s Amazing Love

Romans 8:37-39 tells us this:  “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us…
