Devotions for Life

“Where Are The Nine?”

“Then Jesus answered and said, ‘Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine — where are they?'” :(Luke 1717 NASU).
Surprised! Disappointed! These two words come to mind as I read these words. Ten men were afflicted with leprosy. They begged Jesus to heal them. He blesses every one of them with a cure of one of man’s most dreaded diseases. They were told to go and show themselves to the priests for verification that they were cured, but when they saw their flesh healed they forgot to even thank Jesus. Well, except for one Samaritan.


Try A Little Kindness

“And be ye kind one to another” (Ephesians 4:32).
Seven little words that carry with them such a powerful impact on our lives. Kindness is defined as being disposed to do good, as an act of good will but like the word “love,” it is difficult to grasp or capture its full range of meaning. Kindness is seen in a good nature, a gentle, tender, loving spirit. We do recognize it when we see it but still find that mere words never seem to do it justice.


Jesus’ Faithfulness and Our Fruit Of Faithfulness

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,…; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).
Jesus revealed God to us while He walked among mankind (John 1:14 and Hebrews 1:3a). So as we look at the fruit of the Spirit, we need to see it through Jesus’ manifestation of the fruit.
