    Godliness and Contentment

    Godliness and Contentment

    Today's Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 6:6-10
    6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trapand into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

    On Anger and Slander

    On Anger and Slander

    Today's Scripture Reading:Ephesians 4:26-31
    26 “In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
    29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others upaccording to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
    Summary:
    All of us get angry at some point in our lives. Whether it is as injustice that you watch or hear about, or whether it is because your neighbor has said or done something wrong to you. For some of us, the emotion of Anger is a frequent occasion. We have a short fuse, and it doesn’t take much for us to get mad at something that we don’t feel happy about. Some of us store it deep inside, so our anger is stuff away deeper and deeper until one day it manifests itself in an explosive manner. Some of us pretend like we aren’t angry at all, and deal with it in a passive aggressive way. Some of us will burn the bridge by walking away and avoiding the people involved altogether – severing relationships and ties and never speaking to them anymore, or at least for a certain amount of time until it has cooled off.

    Feb. 8, 2019 - Somebody to Love

    Feb. 8, 2019 - Somebody to Love

    ANNOUNCEMENT:
    There will be no new podcast devotional uploads for the next few weeks as I will be away preparing for a number of Church Retreats with my Youth Groups. I will resume uploading starting March 4, 2019. Until then, you are more than welcome to go back to some of the previous devotionals if you have missed any!
     
    Today's Scripture Reading: 1 John 3:18
    "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth."
     
     
    Excerpt:
    Words can be empty without action.Because God could not communicate to us enough his love for us, he showed it to us in the ultimate of action for you and I. He died on the cross for us and paid the debt that we could not pay.
    It says in 1 John 3:18 that we ought to love with our actions and in truth. If you cannot confess with your mouth that you love that person - either because you are too angry at them, too shy, or too hurt, then begin by doing something for them.

    Feb. 7, 2019 - Put it into Practice

    Feb. 7, 2019 - Put it into Practice

    Today's Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:4-9
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
     
    Excerpt:
    There are things that we may have major anxieties about. We worry as if it is the end of the world and we have no salvation from it. One thing we often forget not just as Christians, but as humans, is how to find joy in the midst of our circumstances. The news is flooded with sadness, anger, injustice, and is a rare gem to see something celebratory hit the headlines. We often picture our lives that way as well...

    Feb. 6, 2019 - More of Jesus

    Feb. 6, 2019 - More of Jesus

    Today's Scripture Reading: Galations 2:20
    20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
    Excerpt:
    To taste and experience the knowledge of the gospel of Jesus in our lives is one that is staggeringly transformational. There is no other taste like it, to know and have the reassurance through the revelation of the gospel and convicting faith in our salvation through Christ is nothing that can be compared to. But the question may be for some of us today - how do I have that kind of faith? how do I experience Christ in that manner?
