Devotions for Life

Pure Joy

“These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full” (John 15:11).

Yesterday we experienced great joy. At the end of several tests, a doctor told us I did not have cancer. I have a new lease on life.


Every Drug Imaginable

Text:  “For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to do that which is good is not. For the good which I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I practice” (Romans 7:18-19).

Recently we saw news accounts of a former NBA star who was hospitalized in critical condition and clinging to life. The report said that he had every drug imaginable in his system.


Something We Must Not Love, The World

Ponder: Doesn’t God love the world? Why shouldn’t I?

Scripture: “Do not love the world or the things in the world” (1 John 2:15a, NKJV).

Who would deny that love is good? Yet God’s word teaches that we should not love certain things. Even love can be misdirected.
