THE BREAD OF LIFE! – John 6:47-48 Devotional

THE BREAD OF LIFE!

John 6:47-48 – Devotional

John 6:47-48

“Without question, I tell you: anyone who truly believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life.”

All around us are people who are seeking answers. So-called psychics claim to have all the answers, yet when push comes to shove, they are never able to save others or even themselves.

For those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we may have the same problems and challenges as the unbelievers, but our hope is not in what benefit we receive here on earth (and there are many benefits), but our great reward is waiting for us in glory.

Christ’s faithful followers look beyond the travails of this life and see the reward that Christ has provided for those who place their trust in Him. In John 14, Christ assures us that He is preparing an eternal home designed for us in glory.

My hope is not so much to reside in the spectacular home he has prepared for me, but to spend eternity with the Savior who loved a sinner like me. I want to praise and glorify Him forever and ever!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

TRUST IN THE LORD! – Proverbs 3:5-6 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

TRUST IN THE LORD!

Proverbs 3:5-6 – Devotional

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the LORD with all of your heart rather than relying on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will lead you.”

All of us have some core of reliance. It may be our physical attributes, our mental acumen, our family heritage, or some other basis of reliance. Then there are those of us who seemingly have little or no self esteem. We delight in the fact that we are nothing and therefore have no responsibility to do anything. BEEP!

There are some people who seem to take pride in belittling themselves and taking glory in that they are nothing. That foolish attitude reveals that they have become guilty of the pride in their humility. How utterly foolish!

I once heard a pastor share his dismay by a comment one of his flock shared after he had preached a message on humility. This person was simply glowing as she shared how much the message had meant to her. She felt she had very few spiritual gifts to offer the Lord, but she was proud of her gift of humility! YUCK!

We all need to lean more on the Lord and seek His leadership in our life. Jesus made it very clear that to offer a cup of water in His name was far more vital to a parched throat than the most eloquent sermon. Let’s live our faith!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and your actions!

LIVE WITH A GLOW! – John 16:33b Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

LIVE WITH A GLOW!

John 16:33b – Devotional

John 16:33b

“In this world you will have to endure tribulation, but be filled with pure joy, for I have overcome the world.”

From time to time I have encountered people that are sour-faced and see only doom and gloom. They see trials and troubles in even the most glorious of times. I have to confess that I usually try to insure that I have something to attend to that will give me an excuse to get away from them and spend time with the Lord.

Now that I have confessed one of my short-comings, let me share that there are other people who I find great delight in spending quality time with. These are people who keep their eyes on the Lord and in His precious Word!

The reality is that we are one or the other of those qualities to those we encounter in our daily activities. It causes me to ask myself the question; “Is my life projecting a growl or a glow?

There is no question about the fact that we will all face adversity in this world. Jesus shares this reality in today’s Scripture. But with the reality that we will all face trials, He will be with us and that is enough to give us a glow!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

GODLY WISDOM! – Proverbs 23:9 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

GODLY WISDOM!

Proverbs 23:9 – Devotional

Proverbs 23:9

“- – a fool will totally reject the wisdom of wise words.”

I recall talking with a good friend and he mentioned he had heard a comment to keep in mind: “Never argue with a fool. You will lower yourself to his level and discover that he has more experience than you at that lower level.”

I often reflect on the homespun wit and wisdom of Ben Riordan, the Juvenile Court Judge I worked for many years ago. One of his favorite expressions was to describe a fool as one who might just appear to be a fool… until he opened his mouth…at which time he removed all doubt!

There is a definition given in Psalm 53:1; “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.” As we consider that definition we discover that many people fall into that category. It is frustrating and counterproductive to argue with those who deny God.

Argumentation will never lead to victory. We must live out our faith in such a way that Jesus will be seen in and through us without a word being spoken. The best witnesses for Jesus are those who allow Him to use us as His instruments of grace. May the beauty of Jesus be seen in us!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
