Devotions for Life

Fishing For Faith

“And have mercy on some who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire” (Jude 22-23).
Christ’s followers, and preachers in particular, learn early in their experiences that not all want to be or will be saved, and must console themselves in their best effort. Though far fetched, I’ve compared soul saving with fishing the many streams and ponds in my boyhood area. Fortunately, I had an uncle who visited most of the favorite spots and had equipment enough for me and my aunt, who not only was avid in hooking, but cooking as well.


Enlightening Contrasts

Ponder: 2 Cor. 4:16 – 5:10
Bitter, sweet, sharp, dull, light, dark. Contrasts provide a variety of experiences; contrasts teach. Take a moment and think about the fourteen contrasts in Ecclesiastes three.


A Heart’s Desire

“You are good and what you do is good; teach us Your decrees” (Ps. 119:68).
What God is, is good and what He does is good, and what He has authorized for us is good for us! There are many who ignore the evidence of God’s authority, not for a lack of proof, but for their own desires in this life. In Psalm 119:1, we learn that God’s statutes are a heritage and joy of the believer’s heart. But it may cause those not in Christ to question why it’s a blessing to live under God’s authority.
