Devotions for Life


“We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, and yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us’. But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:28-29).
We live in a culture that is “politically correct.” Among a lot of things that we are not to profess, our religion is one, especially if it is Christianity. It is okay to be a Christian if we keep our mouths shut.


Take Care of My Sheep

“My sheep wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. They were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked for them” (Ezekiel 34:6).
Three times Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love me?” By the third time Jesus asked, Peter was grieved. Jesus knew all things, and He should have known that Peter loved Him. But Jesus was trying to make a point with Peter. “Feed my sheep.”


Moses the Patriot

“Why should the Egyptians speak saying, ‘With evil intent He brought them out to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earth’? Turn from Your burning anger and
change Your mind about doing harm to Your people”
(Exodus 32:12).
The baby Moses was hidden by his family to keep him alive. He was found by the daughter of Pharaoh. His mother was able to take care of him. Moses was raised in Pharaoh’s house, but thanks to his mother, he knew who his brethren were. He even killed an Egyptian to avenge the beating of a fellow Hebrew (Exodus 2:11-12).
