Devotions for Life

Continuing Education

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being My priest” (Hosea 4:6).
The Spirit through the writer of Hebrews admonishes the original readers of that epistle and of course everyone who hasn’t continued learning God’s word. “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food” (Hebrews 5:12).


Knowing One Another

Today’s Scripture: John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

It was simpler then. Shopping was much simpler. Going to a furniture store and making a purchase was easy. You would pay for the item, pick it up and take it home. Today a purchase may have to go to a warehouse where the item will be ordered and you can expect delivery in two weeks with a $50.00 delivery fee. It was simpler back then.


Guilt And A Clear Conscience

For Meditation: Romans 6:8-11

Today’s Scripture: “I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day” (2 Tim 1:3).

Guilt is pervasive and persistent and ugly. One source of guilt is all the laws that we have today. We have laws relating to everything from how to raise our children to when we can mow the lawn. Cross one of these lines and feel the twinge that guilt causes. But the question is not really the source of our guilt, but what do we do with that guilt.
