Devotion - May 14, 2013

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life.

Revelation 22:14

The Washing

In his Civil War book, <p>Revelation 22:14</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>The Washing</strong></p> <p>In his Civil War book, <em>Glory Road</em>, author Bruce Catton shows us how dirty a human being can get. He recounts an episode in which a soldier leaves a prisoner-of-war camp to rejoin his old unit. His time as a POW had left him filthy beyond description. He asks his comrades to help him get clean. They take him into a river, strip off his clothes and begin to wash and scrub.</p>

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus, in those moments when I stumble and the stench of my old sinful habits fills the air, remind me of the washing I have in you. Fill me with your peace. Empower me to get back up and to walk again with you. Amen.

Devotion - May 7, 2013

I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

Revelation 21:22

Enduring Temple

Perhaps the most famous church building in all of England is St Paul’s Cathedral in London. It’s famous for many reasons. For one, it has dominated the London skyline since before the birth of the United States. For another, it’s been the site for numerous historic events, from royal weddings to state funerals.

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus Christ, in the smoking rubble of this fallen world, you remain. You endure. Your promises never fail. Move us by your Spirit to find our refuge in you. Amen.

Devotion - April 29, 2013

I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"

Revelation 21:3-5


Individuals with dark hearts set off explosions that kill and maim and injure dozens of people. Flooding destroys farmland and cripples a local economy. A distracted driver loses control and runs down a young student… Sometimes it seems that everywhere we turn we find destruction and heartache in our world.

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus, lift my eyes from the pain of this world to see the victory you have won for me. Help me to look forward with eager anticipation to the glory of my heavenly home where everything will be made new. Amen.

Devotion - April 23, 2013

After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. … And they cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." …Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?" I answered, "Sir, you know." And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; … Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. … And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Revelation 7:9-17 (selected verses)

Sing the Song of the Saints

People say Christianity is elitist. They don’t want to live by anyone else’s rules but their own. Is it any wonder that one of the most requested songs at funerals is Frank Sinatra’s, “My Way”?

Is that your song? Or does your song echo that of the saints in heaven?

Prayer: 

Give me strength, Lord, when life gets hard. Keep me focused on the glory you have waiting for me in heaven together with all your saints. Amen.
