Devotion for December 09, 2008

December 9, 2008

Devotion for December 09, 2008 Abraham’s and Sarah’s early responses to God’s pledge that they would have a son and become a great nation were something less than faith-filled. Abraham, for example, pointed out to God that in his currently childless family, one of his servants stood to inherit everything (Gen. 15:1–3). And Sarah is famous...

Elizabeth: From Disgrace to Praise

December 4, 2012

Elizabeth: From Disgrace to Praise We have spent the past two days examining the character of Zechariah, the priest who encountered an angel.

Cleansed by God

July 5, 2019

Cleansed by God Some people (often single males), rely on the "sniff test" to ascertain whether their clothes are clean enough to wear. According to Reader's Digest, 70 percent of the soil on your clothing is invisible. Your clothes may look clean, but they still need to be washed. Even if they pass the sniff test!

Devotion for Jan. 25, 2010

January 25, 2010

Devotion for Jan. 25, 2010 George Santayana said it best: "When experience is not retained, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." The leadership of the divided kingdom of Israel evidently had no concept of the history of their nation, the faith or sins of their forefathers, or the mighty works...

By My Spirit

July 6, 2019

By My Spirit In April, a fire ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The Gothic cathedral, which began construction in 1163, took nearly 300 years to be complete.
