Devotions for Life

Who Is This Jesus? Part 7

Ponder: “Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in all things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted” (Hebrews 2:17-18).
Jesus is the One who lived the life that I could not. I failed to live a sinless, obedient, compassionate, and forgiving life since the age when I could understand right and wrong.


Anger’s Spread

“Be angry and yet do not sin’ do not let the sun go down on your anger” (Eph. 4:26).
It’s a pity we take out our moments of rage on others, spreading the venom to ease our own frustrations. Even Jesus indicates this deep emotion is difficult to avoid. So how to alleviate such a trying and hurtful feelings? Try humor!


One Direction

Today’s Bible Verse: “So you will walk in the way of good men . And keep to the paths of the righteous” (Prov 2:20 NASU ).
The number one musical group among teens today is a group of five males from England who are in their late teens and early 20s and they call themselves “One Direction.” They are the craze today, especially among the girls and they are coming to Denver in a few days. I’m not promoting this musical group, but I am promoting the idea of “One Direction.” That ought to be the focus of every individual on earth. Our “One Direction” should be heaven.
