Devotions for Life

Our Price

Ponder: “From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and
suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised
up on the third day” (Matthew 16:21).
“But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities”
(Isaiah 53:5a). Jesus paid the price for our redemption. What a price! It began with His
leaving Heaven, giving up the rights and privileges of being part of the God Head
(Philippians 2:6-7) and becoming like us.


Children Our Rich Heritage

Today’s Bible Verse: “‘Permit the children to come to me; do not hinder them;
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does
not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter at all.’ And then Jesus took
them in his arms and began blessing them” (Mark 10:14-16).


Do Not Disturb

Today’s Scripture: 1 Peter 5:6-7 – “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that
He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”
We are all familiar with the door knob hangers that read, “Do Not Disturb.” You can find them in hotel/motel rooms and sometimes hanging on the door of a teenager’s room. The message is plain; you want your peace and quiet.
