Devotions for Life

“And God Was Angry”

Text: “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5 NAS).

During the days of Noah God was grieved, even angry, at the conduct of those ungodly people. “God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth” (Genesis 6:12).


“I’m Not That Bad”

Ponder: 2 Sam. 11, 12; Ps. 51

“The person who sins will die” (Ezek 18:20a NASU).

When David sinned with Bethsheba, who was the wife of another man, he never considered the consequences until she became pregnant.  Her husband, Uriah, was a soldier in David’s army, and at war with the Ammonites.


The Gospel Of God

“Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…” (Romans 1:1-7). 

Many would say it is Paul’s greatest letter that has been preserved for us. As Paul begins that letter to the Romans, he begins with the greatest of all messages: The Gospel of God! A careful study of the opening passage in that masterpiece epistle shows some important facts about the Gospel of God. An easy way to follow Paul’s teaching on these facts is to notice his use of prepositions in the passage.
