Devotion - July 26, 2015

We ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

Romans 8:23

The Groan of the Chrisitan

It’s the beginning of another workday. Your clock radio goes off. You hit the snooze button as many times as you dare. Finally you pull back the covers, swing your feet to the floor, and sit there for just a moment.

Then it comes. The groan. Perhaps it’s audible, or perhaps it stays inside you, but nevertheless the groan is there.

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father, when I groan under the burdens of life, remind me by your Spirit that, in Jesus, I also look forward to victories and joys beyond my imagination. Amen.

Devotion - July 4, 2015

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned—for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come. But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!

Romans 5:12-15


Can One Man Make a Difference?

Albert Einstein changed the world of physics. Martin Luther King Jr. brought momentum to the civil rights movement. President Abraham Lincoln kept the United States unified.

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus, thank you for doing all that is necessary for my eternal security. Lead me to receive your gift by faith, trusting that in it I find full forgiveness and certainty of an eternal life with you. Use me to share this gift with others who do not know about it. Amen.

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations.

Romans 4:18


Ever feel surrounded by hopelessness? Its dark cloud can come from many directions. It can come from the condition of your finances. It can come from your workplace. It can come from your marriage, from your family or from your chronic bad health. It can come from bad memories you can't shake. It can come from some sinful weakness that you've been battling for years.

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father, when the devil tries to surround me with hopelessness, empower me by your gospel to pierce it. Because at the end of the day, your promises are real, and my hopelessness is not. Amen.

Devotion - June 7, 2015

But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

Romans 3:21-22


"Do you have everything you need?" That's a pretty typical question, isn't it? A parent asks their child that question as they head off to the first day of high school, or as they get into the car to head to college. That question is directed to a co-worker as they head off for a meeting or business trip.

Prayer: 

O Holy Spirit, I praise you that through the gospel you have given me Jesus' perfection. Assure me that I have all that I need to enter heaven, because of Jesus' work in my place. Amen.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13

I am an admitted fan of March Madness. As the 2015 NCAA basketball tournament came to its conclusion, my favorite team was still competing—they had made it to the Final Four. I was hoping for two more wins for my team.

I was hoping, but there was no guarantee of victory.

Prayer: 

Dear Jesus, by your Spirit create in me a confident faith in the promises of God. Grant me the daily and eternal peace of knowing my life is safely held in the loving arms of the Father. Amen.
