Devotions for Life


“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:27).

There is a difference between the world’s peace and the peace that Jesus gives. The world’s peace is totally dependent on everything going perfectly right. Jesus’ peace is with you in good days, not so good days, and absolutely horrible days.


Victory In Jesus

Ponder: 1Cor. 15.54-57
Today’s Verse: “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(1Cor. 15.57).
When I feel defeated by sin I need to be reminded that victory is found in Christ.   Christ won
the battle over sin and death long ago; therefore, as Christ’s possession, we are conquerors.
Through our baptism in the name of Jesus Christ “we were washed, we were sanctified; we were justified in His name and by the Spirit of our God” (1Cor. 6.11). Paul wrote about our victory in
Christ in several of his letters.


Painted Tombstones

Today’s Bible Verse: “Except you repent, you shall all like manner perish” (Luke 13:3).
Most of us have an idea as to what the term “repentance” pertains to, and often means, but is
generally overlooked as a change-of-mind. And though the subject of this story may never have
turned from his former lifestyle, he had a background painted with colorful scriptures.
