BE FULL OF CHEER! – John 16:33b Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

BE FULL OF CHEER!

John 16:33b – Devotional

John 16:33b

“In the world you will experience tribulation; but be full of cheer, for I have overcome the world!”

I have thrilled as I have listened to the Gaither’s sing their song, “Because He Lives.” This has been especially true during the times when I stood at the graveside of those who have been the dearest to me.

For the believer, when we say farewell to our believing loved ones, it is not an “eternal good bye,” it is more appropriately a, “until we live eternally in glory, you will live fondly in the storehouse of my memories.”

For the true believers in the Living Lord Jesus, we have a glorious reunion waiting for us in Glory. The precious experience of seeing our loved ones again will only be surpassed by seeing our Lord and Savior who gave Himself for us!

We need to reflect the cheer of being the redeemed of the Lord. Jesus has given us the precious gift of eternal life. For the believer, physical death is a farewell to this sin-sick world and hello to an eternity full of cheer!

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

A BABY SEAL! – John 1:29 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

A BABY SEAL!

John 1:29 – Devotional

John 1:29

“Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.”

I heard of a missionary who was ministering in Eskimo villages along the Bering Sea. He was sharing the Gospel using this passage from John 1:29. The response from the people was blank and empty.

The next day he spoke with one of the elders and asked him why the people acted so confused about this scripture passage. The elder scratched his head and replied, “We do not understand what the word ‘Lamb’ means. Please explain it to us.”

The next time the people gathered to hear the Word of God, the missionary read John 1:29, but with a difference: “Look, the Baby Seal of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” He knew he had found his answer. He explained to the group that Jesus was as innocent as a baby seal. Jesus never used His divine power, but allowed Himself to die so men, women, boys and girls could have their sins taken away and be prepared for heaven.

That missionary’s creative application of God’s Word reached into a culture of ice and snow to reveal that Jesus died for them. Many of the people repented of their sins and accepted Jesus into their hearts as their Savior. Praise the Lord for His tender mercy!

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

AUTHENTIC PEACE! – John 14:25 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

AUTHENTIC PEACE!

John 14:25 – Devotional

John 14:25

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; I do not give as the world gives to you. Do not be troubled in heart, nor be afraid.”

There is a peace that is anything but peaceful. I am told that in the midst of some major battles a cease fire may be ordered in which both sides stop hostilities for a certain period of time. It may be temporarily quiet, but it is not TRUE PEACE.

Prior to the outbreak of WWII in 1938, Sir Neville Chamberlain returned from Germany with a peace compact that was signed by Adolph Hitler. He waved the document and proclaimed, “Peace in our time!” We now know how false that peace really was.

Jesus promises His followers peace that is far different from anything the world can offer. It is peace in the midst of the storms of life. It is the peace that God gave to Stephen when he was being stoned to death (Acts 7:54-60). Other martyrs died with that same peace that can only be described as AUTHENTIC PEACE.

Perhaps you feel like you are being tossed to and fro in the storms of life. It is time to anchor your life to the rock of our salvation and allow the Lord to give you His TRUE PEACE – AUTHENTIC PEACE, that will satisfy your soul.

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

HEAR HIS VOICE! – John 10:27 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

HEAR HIS VOICE!

John 10:27 – Devotional

John 10:27

“My sheep know My voice, and I know them, and they respond to Me.”

As a boy I used to spend most of my waking hours playing outdoors. That was long before the days of television, computers, and various instruments that intrude on the delight of being in the great outdoors!

There always seemed to be several kids of various ages that played together. Each of us could recognize the voice of our mother when we were called to come inside. Did we respond immediately? Are you kidding?! It was only after repeated calls, and a few threats of a punishment, that we reluctantly obeyed.

I look forward to hearing the voice of my mother once again. But even more so do I eagerly long for the voice of my beloved Savior that I have known for over eighty years. Sadly, I have not always responded to His voice as quickly as I should, but I have known since I accepted Him into my heart that I am His child!

If you have never entered into that eternal relationship with Jesus by being born again, I implore you to simply invite Him to be your Savior. He knows your heart and has died for you to become one of His kids! Do you hear His voice?

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