Being the Friend of God

“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 Have you ever thought about what it means to have God as your friend?  For starters you get three in one. You get God the father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the…

Study His Word

“I am Thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.” Psalm 119:125 Too often people use the excuse that they can’t understand the Bible, and that is why they don’t read it. The truth is that they don’t read it, because they don’t want to take the time to do so. Reading the…

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…

Love Never Fails

” Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away, ” (I Corinthians 13:8). The world would lead you to believe that love is easy and love is cheap. In the course of even casual conversations you may hear people…

Thank Goodness We Don’t Get What We Deserve

“Why can’t God be fair?” That question just makes me cringe, but it’s a question that I hear so often and I remember when my Pastor said something about this very same question. He said something that upon first hearing makes sense and makes you say, “Oh, yeah, thank goodness!” But when you think about…

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.…

God is Faithful

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9). God is faithful! We sing about it. We talk about it. People preach about it. But, do we really realize in our hearts the breadth and depth of this blessed truth? My guess is…

Love is willing, sacrificial, and powerful!

Christmas is a celebration. If there is ever a gift to remember and to be thankful for – it is the birth of Jesus, only to be superseded by His death and resurrection.  Even if we stopped there, we would have mentioned every gift we actually need! With the coming of Jesus to earth, we…
