Devotions for Life

Promised Victory

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us”

(Rom 8:37 NIV).

One of the burning issues of the day is “Will we ever defeat Isis?” “Will we ever defeat the Islamic terrorists that wish to destroy our way of life and take away our freedoms?”


Genuine Obedience

“But thanks be to God that though you were slaves to sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed” (Rom 6:17).

There’s a church in Charlotte, North Carolina, that has introduced a novel idea. They secretly built a water slide that leads to a small pool to serve as a baptistery. People known to have yet been baptized were ushered through a door out to the edge of the slide, and then were pushed on the slide and swirled down into the pool and were baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That Sunday was dubbed Splashtism Sunday!


What Samson’s Riddle Doesn’t Teach

“Out of the eater something to eat, and out of the strong something sweet” (Judges 14:14).

Recently, I wrote a devotional on this verse to show that from the life of Samson, God is teaching us that He can work wonders even through the bad things in our lives and even overrule our own stumbling for good. The riddle was also a clear declaration of Samson’s life for his people and the plan of God.
