    What’s the Result of Faith?

    Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone. Psalm 33:22 You can feel burdens of stress, of strained relationships, and of crammed schedules each day. You speak of feeling “weighted down” at times as challenges pile up, and as you’re weighted down by fear, worries...

    Abundance of Grace

    Through One Man Romans 5:12-14 ESV Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from...

    What is the Good News?

    Pure Milk 1 Peter 2:1-3 ESV So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. Another name for the gospel of Jesus...

    What Kind of Persuasion?

    For Freedom Galatians 5:1 NIV It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Jesus Christ died that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. This is the essence of the gospel message. He died on that...

    As Christ Loved Us

    How are we to love one another? What should that look like? What does it mean to love others “as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us”? “Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant...

    Put Off / Put On

    “I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Eph. 4:1-3 ESV To what...

    You Bet I Am!

    For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 ESV Over the course of the forty-five years of my marriage to my husband, he was not free in Christ, although he claimed to be. He claimed to be a follower of Christ, or I would...

    Free in Christ

    What does it mean to be “free in Christ”? Truly it means our sins are forgiven and we are no longer under condemnation. Amen. And, if we are in Christ, by faith in him, we, thus, have the hope of eternal life with God in glory. But, is there more to this freedom than that? The Lord Jesus led me...

    Free Indeed

    Do you ever feel like what you have done is so bad that you could never be forgiven? Are you afraid to tell the truth for fear you will be rejected? Or, out of fear of other consequences? Do you remain in sinful addiction because you have given up hope of ever changing? The Lord Jesus led me to...

    Abide in Truth

    What is love? It can be many different things, depending on what type of love we are talking about. There is erotic or romantic love, and then there is friendship (companionship or brotherly) love, and I believe there is also a special kind of love a parent has for a child, and then there is...

    No Temptation

    In 2014, I tried my hand at some short devotionals where I spoke them, and I put the words into a Power Point Presentation, and then made them into videos, and I posted them on YouTube. I had forgotten about them until I was going through some of my older writings today. So, I am going to share...

    Yielded to God

    If you are in Christ Jesus, by faith, how long have you known him? And, do you really know him? Do you know what he requires of you, you who have believed in him? And, are you living what you know, by his power? So many say they know God, that they believe in Jesus Christ, and that they are in...

    Breaking Free

    (An allegory from real life) About three weeks ago, my husband and I each had to have a crown removed from a tooth in our mouths, and a new crown each was put on order. While we waited for the new (permanent) crowns to arrive, we were each given a temporary crown, which was not as good as the...

    The Gift

    When you hear the phrase, “The grace of God,” what comes to mind? What is grace, in fact? And, if you accept God’s grace into your life, what does that mean? What does that look like exactly? The Lord Jesus led me to read Titus 2:11-14 (ESV). “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing...

    Walk in Victory

    We are saved from our sins, and given eternal life with God, not just so we can escape hell and have the promise of heaven as our eternal home. When we believe in Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of our lives, our new lives in Christ Jesus have only begun. He has so much he wants to do in and...

    Walk in Love

    The Lord Jesus led me to read Ephesians 5 (Select vv. ESV). Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. vv. 1-2 The goal of our salvation from sin is that we might be Christ-like...

    A Common Thread

    If you, being a follower of Jesus Christ, were to write a testimony of what difference Jesus Christ has made in your life, what would that say? Surely, each of our testimonies would be as individual as we are, but there should also be a common thread weaved throughout all of them. The Lord...
