JOY AND PEACE! – Romans 15:13 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

JOY AND PEACE!

Romans 15:13 –  Devotional

Romans 15:13

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

If there were some way of measuring the amount of joy and peace you had in your life, what would that gauge read? I fear that for many it would be closer to empty than full.

That is tragic! If ever there was a time when the world needed the joy and peace of the Lord, it is today. There is no end to the violence and hatred that surrounds us. But there is also no end to the joy and peace that is ours through our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The call to go forth to bring hope to the hopeless people around us is loud and clear. We have a great opportunity to do something significant in our day and age. The Lord has given His new life that we in turn can share that new life with others.

I remember a song we sang when I was a young boy. It had the words; I have the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart to stay. I want that joy to be seen by others as I live my life for the Lord.

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

LEAD ON LORD JESUS! – Romans 8:18 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

LEAD ON LORD JESUS!

Romans 8:18​ –  Devotional

Romans 8:18

“I consider the sufferings and trials of this of this sin-sick world are not worth worrying about when we consider the glory that waiting for us.”

In the past few weeks I have spent a considerable amount of time in a dental chair. As I enter the dental office I have a good idea of the ordeal that awaits me, but the alternative is poor dental health. I endure the pain in order to receive the reward.

Many years ago I had a dental appointment in Ontario, Oregon. The dentist asked if I wanted deadening or not. I thought he was kidding, but he was serious. He explained that he never used Novocain and he survived to live another day!

I thought if he could do it, so could I. Dental professionals think I am either brave or crazy. I just keep them guessing which is true. The fact of the matter is that pain is more fear of what might hurt than what actually hurts.

I have no idea what the Lord will bring across my path in the days that lie ahead for me. It really does not matter for I know that He will be right there beside me each step of the way. LEAD ON LORD JESUS!

FAITH! – Romans 5:1-2 Devotional

FAITH!

Romans 5:1-2​ –  Devotional

Romans 5:1-2

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

If grace is not a blue eyed blonde, neither is faith a brown eyed brunette. Perhaps the best way to describe what we read here in Romans chapter 5 is faith in the completed works of Christ is the means by which we find peace that surpasses all.

There is no way we can be saved by doing anything. All of our works are nothing but filthy rags before a righteous and holy God. It is total dependence on the free gift He offers that matters.

The thief on the cross next to Jesus never accomplished a single righteous act that assured him of eternal life, other than a plea for Jesus to remember him when He (Jesus) came into His kingdom, Can you just imagine the scene later that day when the thief died and awoke in Paradise and saw Jesus as the Savior of the world! WOW!

Faith in the trustworthiness of God’s Word allows us to live our life to the full and eagerly anticipate the joy that awaits us when we enter our eternal home with all of the saints of God who we will meet in glory. Faith opens our eyes to what God has waiting for us in glory.
