Audible devotions for your day every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Join us as we rejoice in His grace, knowing from His Word that He loves us and forgives us, and confident that He is with us every step of the way – on this side of heaven. Devotions for real life.
Lord, When Did We See You?
Have you seen Jesus today? How about yesterday? It’s no surprise that as God’s children you and I long to see our Savior’s face. Until that day, when He returns again in glory, we’re going to have to wait. However, Jesus assures you there are times in this life when you and I get a glimpse of our Savior – even though we’re not aware of it.
Take That, Death!
One of the verses that often raises eyebrows in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians is this: "The last enemy to be destroyed is death." Why does that seem strange? It's seems strange because, right now, death seems to have the upper hand in this life. On the day our Savior returns in glory we will see firsthand how thoroughly it has been defeated.
What Are You Doing Here?
What are you doing here? It's the kind of question you ask when someone is clearly in the wrong place. It's the kind of question you're glad to hear when the one asking it is there to rescue you. Here's the situation that makes you glad to realize that you have loving God, a searching Savior.
The Ongoing Feast
It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving! And chances are good that your fridge is bursting with leftovers from the feast. Of course, the further out you and I get from the celebration there will be fewer and fewer leftovers until every remnant of the feast is gone. That’s how it works. But how does it work when it come to the Feast of the Lord’s Supper?
Resolving An Ambiguous Image
What do you see? That’s the question that’s posed when you’re looking at an “Ambiguous Image.” An ambiguous image is a picture that can be seen in more than one way. The Parable of the Talents is remarkable as it reveals how the different people in it view the master. By God's grace, knowing the salvation that God has given us in our Savior enables you and me to see the coming of the Son of Man, and His coming, in a whole knew way.
Certainty In The Midst of Uncertainty
When it comes to the timing surrounding the Day of the Lord the matter is not "if," but "when." In Matthew, Jesus Himself makes it clear, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” However, Paul reminds of the comforting certainty that is ours in Christ – certainty in the midst of uncertainty.
