Devotion for October 02, 2005 Devotion for October 02, 2005 Pastor Rich Clement’s twenty-something daughter was going through a very difficult time.

Every Day Is Thanks Giving

November 28, 2019

Every Day Is Thanks Giving Sometimes I get so full at Thanksgiving dinner I skip dessert. This is unfortunate because the end of the meal with its pumpkin pie and whipped cream is one of the best parts. The vision John describes at the end of the book of Revelation is definitely one that sparks thanksgiving. He begins by seeing the Holy City,...

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification

May 7, 2013

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification “Do as I say, not as I do.” It’s a tempting refrain, especially for parents who live under the constant scrutiny of sets of small eyes. And it’s not always the wrong message. Children ought to wait until appropriate ages to do many of the things their parents do: drive a car, wear makeup, or trim the...

Gates of Death

March 6, 2020

Gates of Death The Bible’s gates of hell or “gates of death” (v. 13) may remind Lord of the Rings fans of the Black Gate of Mordor. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and the movie adaptations, the Black Gate is a fearsome structure—dark, huge, seemingly invulnerable, and guarded by legions of powerful, evil creatures. Merely to approach this gate...

Devotion for December 28, 2007

December 28, 2007

Devotion for December 28, 2007 As is well-known, today’s culture is increasingly driven by sexual immorality. Sex outside of marriage is portrayed as the norm; sitcoms and movies are replete with obscene jokes and sexual innuendoes; and magazines and Web sites glorify lust. Today’s reading is as relevant to contemporary Christians as it was...

Devotion for Nov. 15, 2009

November 15, 2009

Devotion for Nov. 15, 2009 For many people, the ideal Thanksgiving looks a lot like the Norman Rockwell painting, "Freedom from Want," which appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1943. This famous painting depicts a grandmother in a bright, white apron placing a large turkey before a grandfather in his Sunday best, who stands...

November 22, 2009

Devotion for Nov. 22, 2009 There once was a very wealthy man. His farmland was very productive. In fact, his crops were so abundant that his barn couldn't hold the harvest.
