Devotions for Life

Fear Not Their Fear

Bible Verse for Today: “Being ready always to give answer to every man that asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear” ( I Peter 3:15).

Not long ago a man was standing on the street corner in London preaching against homosexuality. He was arrested and sent to prison for his words of belief in God’s will. Like Peter and John who were arrested for preaching, he might have said, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to hearken unto you rather than unto God, judge ye; for we cannot but speak the things which we saw and heard” (Acts 4:19, 20).


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!
