Devotions for Life

Rising to the Occasion

Leviticus 23:1-8


The LORD said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. These are the LORD’s appointed festivals, which you are to proclaim as official days for holy assembly.”

“You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of complete rest, an official day for holy assembly. It is the LORD’s Sabbath day, and it must be observed wherever you live.

“In addition to the Sabbath, these are the LORD’s appointed festivals, the official days for holy assembly that are to be celebrated at their proper times each year.”


He’s Coming Back

Luke 17:20-37


“For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so it will be on the day when the Son of Man comes. But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation.”

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.


Power over Life and Death

John 11:17-37

Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who
lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”
“Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the
world from God.” Then she returned to Mary. She called Mary aside from the mourners and told her, “The Teacher is
here and wants to see you.” So Mary immediately went to him.
