Devotions for Life

Being Alive

“And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life” (I John 5:11-12).

In His discussion on his being the door of the sheep Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

Did you know that you were dead? “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). God made dead sinners alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:5). They were buried with Jesus through baptism. We were raised by the glory and power of the Father just as Jesus was resurrected. We were raised to the newness of life (Romans 6:3-7). We are no longer dead in sin, but alive in Christ!


Blessed Or Stressed?

Text: “I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life. This includes a lot of things; a lot of blessings.
The ultimate blessings come when we reach our eternal home, in heaven, with our Lord and all the saints. But, in this life, there are many blessings as well. Unfortunately many who profess to be Christians may be missing out on these blessings.


Our Great Creator

“For thou did create all things, and because of thy will they were, and were created” (Revelation 4:11b).

For the last several decades, scientists have been searching for other planets like our planet Earth. With millions of stars in our solar system, they figure there must be another planet that can support life. They look for planets in the Goldilocks Zone, that distance from a sun that is neither too hot nor too cold to sustain life.
