Devotions for Life

Here am I send me

Ponder: My personal responsibility
Scripture: “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” (Isaiah 6:8, NKJV)
Have you heard about the four church members, Sam Somebody, Evan Everybody, Andy Anybody, and Norbert Nobody? Whenever a job needed done at church, Everybody figured Anybody could do that. But Anybody thought Somebody would surely do it. However, Somebody figured it was Everybody’s job. Of course Nobody ended up doing it. Poor Nobody was worked to death, so Nobody went to Heaven. As for Anybody, Everybody, and Somebody, you can finish the story.


To Know One Another

Today’s Bible Verse: “He will swallow up death for all time and He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth” (Isa. 25:8).
As time goes by one becomes more of an “elder” than ever imagined, but I’m finding old age is a subject of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter!


Hold Fast

Today’s verse: “But Christ was faithful as a Son over His house – whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end” (Hebrews 3:6).
Peter echoes this idea that we are God’s house. We are living stones being built up as a spiritual house (I Peter 2:5). God does not live in a tabernacle, a temple, or in any other kind of a physical structure. God lives in His people.
