Devotions for Life

Who Is This Jesus? Part 7

Ponder: “Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in all things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sinsof the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted” (Hebrews 2:17-18).
Jesus is the One who lived the life that I could not. I failed to live a sinless, obedient, compassionate, and forgiving life since the age when I could understand right and wrong.


Anger’s Spread

“Be angry and yet do not sin’ do not let the sun go down on your anger” (Eph. 4:26).
It’s a pity we take out our moments of rage on others, spreading the venom to ease our own frustrations. Even Jesus indicates this deep emotion is difficult to avoid. So how to alleviate
such a trying and hurtful feelings? Try humor!


Christian Challenges

Today’s Verse: “All who live godly in Christ shall suffer persecution” (2 Tim. 2:12).

Christians, of course, enjoy an amazing number of benefits, most importantly that of salvation from their sins, the fellowship of brothers and sisters in Christ and the hope of heaven.
