Devotions for Life

The Right Connection

Text: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
Recently, it was necessary for me to be away from home for an extended length of time. During that time, I purchased a new router, giving it a network name for my temporary residence. When I returned home, I decided to use my new router on my home network.


A Life Cut Short

“What is your life? For you are a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away” (James 4:14).
Ed and I went to the funeral today of a friend who died of pancreatic cancer. She was age-young by some standards. The preacher said “her life had been cut short.” Many of us can think of loved ones and friends who died at a young age.


Anyone Home?

“So watch,! You don’t know the day or the exact hour when I will come” (Mt. 25:13).
The idea is that Christians have a grand hope and assurance of the Lord Himself that they will be taken home to heaven on the last day of the earth, but it remains painful and terrifying to imagine what that day will be like. Christ’s second coming and the final judgment of each individual will be in the midst of fire and brimstone and earth laid barren ready for destruction.
