Devotions for Life

Managing Preaching

“. . . but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness” (2 {et/ 2:5).

It should be the desire of each of us to one day be “. . . a preacher of righteousness”! After retiring from a management position in an elementary school district, I was invited to preach and attempted to do so although difficult in those first years. My work in management was state and federally goal-and-result oriented, which is not the purpose of the Lord’s work.


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.
