Devotions for Life

Smiling Herod

Luke 23:11

“And Herod with his men of war set him at naught, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.”

No, Herod may not have actually been standing around the cross, but by his actions, he had a hand in sending Jesus to the cross. We can just picture the scene: Herod laughing, putting a fancy robe on Jesus and simply making fun of our master.


Seeking Love

For the Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).

The apostle John in his letters tells us plainly, and over and over, that God is love. Jesus taught and went to great pains so that we could grasp what kind of love God is. God is a seeking love.


What A Gift

Today’s Scripture Reading: Joshua 1:7 – “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.”

The fourth of July has come and gone. All the popular sites for viewing fireworks were filled to capacity. It seems to this writer that there was more flag waving this year than in years in the recent past. That led me to search concerning the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
