OUR GLORIOUS APPEARANCE! – Colossians 3:4 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

OUR GLORIOUS APPEARANCE!

Colossians 3:4 –  Devotional

Colossians 3:4

“Christ is our life and when He makes His glorious appearance, then those of us who have been born again will also appear with Him in glory.”

The husband of my oldest cousin was a source of joy and delight. As I think back of all of our encounters with Don, there was laughter and spontaneity. He seemed to write the book on what was to be expected. If you had plans to meet for breakfast at 7:00 a.m., he was just as likely to be by to meet you at 5:30 a.m. Ouch!

My wife, Joyce, and I always looked forward to the times when we were close enough to spend times with Don and Betty. We left their company feeling like we had experienced pure joy and delight.

The Scripture for today points to the day when Christ will make His glorious appearance. We are told that we will be with Him. In other words we will also make a glorious appearance. Not because of our own merits, but because of our Savior and the fact that we are His precious possession.

I rise each morning and open God’s Word to drink in the promises that He has given to make my life meaningful and complete. One day I will accompany our Lord and all His saints as we make our glorious appearance. What a day that will be!

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!

FEARLESS! – Psalm 27:1 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

FEARLESS!

Psalm 27:1 –  Devotional

Psalm 27:1

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

Asking for divine help is not necessarily during the times of emergency or threats. We can come to the end of our endurance in a number of ways. We can become physically exhausted, mentally fatigued or even spiritually depleted. Regardless of our condition we can always trust the Lord to be there for us. Praise the Lord!

We are told that David was a man after God’s own heart. That certainly does not mean that David always did what was right. He was as much a sinner as each and every human born into the world. But I am so thankful that David confessed his sin and continued to walk with the Lord.

God never calls us to be perfect! If that was the case I certainly would fall short of that goal. (Don’t become too smug. God knows your heart as well!). God does call us to reach out to Him and allow Him to be our light and salvation.

In what or in whom are you relying for your eternal destiny? If you trust in the so-called wisdom of men you will face terrible disappointment. Only the Lord Jesus Christ offers us confidence that we can face eternity – – FEARLESS! My hope is built on nothing less than Christ and His righteousness!

THE SANDS OF ETERNITY! – Ecclesiastes 3:11 Devotional

THE SANDS OF ETERNITY!

Ecclesiastes 3:11 – Devotional

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

Years ago I heard a minister tell of an incident in a hospital elevator where he had just come from visiting a very ill patient. A young man overheard him speak about eternity and, perhaps wanting to mock his view, asked the minister where eternity was. The minister told the boy to place his hand on his chest to feel the beat of his heart. Young man, eternity is one heartbeat away! That may answer where eternity is or at least how close we are to it, but just how long is eternity?

Our daughter was in the hospital near death. One afternoon as the two of us spoke quietly, she said she felt she was cheated out of half of her life. She went on to say that grandpa was 74 when he died and here she was just 35.

That evening as I drove into the garage I noticed that the car had been bringing in sand. I took out a sheet of typing paper and swept up some of the sand. I then sat at the kitchen table and counted out 74 grains. Some were larger than others, but all of them were quite small. I placed the 74 grains of sand in a tiny sample perfume bottle.

The next day as I entered her room I placed the bottle on her bed. When she asked what it was I told her it was grandpa. I asked her to imagine the earth being nothing but a ball of fine sand. Each grain represented one year of eternity. The 74 grains in the bottle represented grandpa’s life. Compared to the entire globe of sand it was nothing. Whether a person’s life lasted long or short – – compared to eternity it was nothing.

It is what we do with the years we are given that matters. We can choose to confess our sins and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior or we can continue our own willful way and suffer the dreadful consequences prepared for the lost.

I pray that the video that accompanies today’s Daily-E-Votional will assist you in making the right choice. Please feel free to share it with others while there is still time.
