Devotions for Life

The Passage of Time

“. . . His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Pet. 1:3).

It took time to realize, but I have come face to face with aging. I know Jesus arose from the dead, so I have tossed anxiety away. All the childhood castor oil and Vicks, and an adult life of vitamins hasn’t done much to keep up with others my age. What are continuing pains the doctor now advises me, “get use to it.”


Yes, Jesus Loves Me

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. . . (John 13:34).
The story is told of a retired preacher in his 90’s asked to speak at his past congregation’s 60th anniversary. As he put together a sermon for one last time in their pulpit, the preacher who took his place, asked, “What was the greatest lesson you learned in your preaching days?”


To Heal And To Care

“Look after My sheep” (Jn. 21:16).
After W.W.II, my Navy friends and known veterans who depended on the national veterans’ facilities, complained about how difficult and uncaring it was for them. There was the distance that had to be driven, the long hours waiting for service, and the abrupt attention given by those appointed to render aid.
