Devotions for Life

Part Of The Family


Ponder: Your status as a member of God’s family.

Scripture: “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:18 NKJV).

The song is true – we really are the “house (family) of God . . . the church of the living God (1 Timothy 3:15). “Now, therefore, you are . . . members of the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19). Christians are children of the same Heavenly Father (2 Corinthians 6:18). 


Cool Of The Day


“They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden” (Genesis 3:8).

Adam and Eve enjoyed a close relationship with their Creator. Sin had not imposed a barrier between that relationship. Then enter Satan, and with him came temptation. Adam and Eve failed to resist temptation, and their relationship with God became broken. Adam and Eve tried to avoid God. 


What Is The Will Of God?


“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (Rom 12:2).

Many years ago Bible translator, J. B. Philips, wrote a book titled “Your God Is Too Small.” It was a very insightful book, and certainly demolished many misconceptions about God. Getting a good understanding of God is critical for the way we live our lives.
