David’s Fall

2 Samuel 11:1-5 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2Sam.11.1-2Sam.11.5&version=NIV Being powerfully used by God does not mean we are exempt from sin or temptation. It is hard to understand why a servant of God like David would behave so recklessly, engaging in adultery and then murder. Yet, as one theologian phrased it, “Sin is at its root irrational.” In today’s reading, David was at the height of his power. He had sent his army to complete his victory over the…

Flee Dear Friends

So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols. (NLT) -1 Corinthians 10:14 It’s easy to think that this verse doesn’t apply to us anymore, since we don’t pray to false gods and we can forecast the rain. But getting to the heart of the matter, an idol is anything we put our trust in. Isn’t it true that we rely less upon God when we have money in our pocket and food in…

                                                                                The Beatitudes: Part 3                                                 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”                                                 “The only true sign of wisdom is knowing you know nothing.”  Socrates   The Pharisees thought they knew everything; the only way to Heaven was to follow God’s law completely.

Where is Christ in your life?

Morning and Evening Daily Devotional by C.H. Spurgeon June, 28 (Evening) Devotion “But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.” Exodus 7:12 This incident is an instructive emblem of the sure victory of the divine handiwork over all opposition.

Sleeping through Life

In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned how much I enjoyed storms, whether it be daytime or nighttime. Starting with the approach of the dark storm clouds, then the lightning filling the air, followed closely by the echo of the thunder as it vibrated across the sky. The trees sway in the ever-increasing wind as the approaching storm gets closer. Then the rain droplets begin to fall to the ground slowly, building to a…

Icing on the cake

June, 23 “Ephraim is a cake not turned.” Hosea 7:8  A cake not turned is uncooked on one side; and so Ephraim was, in many respects, untouched by divine grace: though there was some partial obedience, there was very much rebellion left. My soul, I charge thee, see whether this be thy case. Art thou thorough in the things of God? Has grace gone through the very centre of thy being so as to be…
