Devotions for Life


“If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:8-9).
Integrity, honesty, truthfulness, and trustworthiness are values that we esteem. I spent almost twenty years with a company whose corporate value statement began with integrity, not with technical expertise or serving our client’s needs. Integrity was the number one value. We were expected to be honest with our clients and with each other and to stand completely behind our work. In fact, dishonesty in any form was a firing offense with only one warning.


All Of Us Are Guilty

Of Jesus’ Death On The Cross
Around the Cross We See . . . .
All of us are guilty of the death of Jesus on the cross
“If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame”
(Hebrews 6:6 KJV).



“[F]or it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure” (Phil 2:13).
We know God cares for us, and will answer our prayers. These are promises. We know that He carries out His plans, and is actively involved in our lives. He is not the Deist’s God who created everything, set laws in place, and stood back at a distance to see how everything works out. Jesus said, “My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working” (John 5:17).
