Devotion – September 30, 2015 – His Return is Coming

zechariah8_21The inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, “Let us go at once to entreat the LORD and seek the LORD Almighty. I myself am going.”
—Zechariah 8:21

When Jesus returns every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord.  What a glorious day it will be!  This passage from Zechariah is a prophecy for the people of Israel of the Lord’s return.  While we look forward to that day when we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever, we don’t do so while sitting idle.  Our call is to go out and bring the Gospel to the people today so that they may confess with their tongues even today that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Devotion – September 23, 2015 – He Is Near To Us

acts17_27[The apostle Paul said] “God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.”
—Acts 17:27

Back a few years ago when my daughter was 4, she first started to learn hide and seek.  Being 4 she wasn’t really very good at the game, but we had a great time playing.  I quickly found that the real fun in the game was to be found.  So, I would “hide” in pretty obvious places and I’d even make sounds so she could find me.  She would get the biggest smile when she found me.

Devotion – September 22, 2015 – Tearing Down and Building Up

ephesians4_29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
—Ephesians 4:29

It can be so easy to join in with a little gossip or, when you are feeling annoyed/angry with someone, to go vent to a friend.  And, hey, what’s wrong with a crude joke here and there.  But that’s not what our mouths are intended for.  We have been made holy by blood of Christ, even our mouths.

Our mouths are intended for something so much greater.  Our words can speak the Word of God.  We can convey the love of Christ.  We can share words of comfort for those who are hurting.  We can build up those who are discouraged.  We can speak well of our neighbor or defend them when others say hurtful things about them.  We can speak the words of life found only in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 4:29 isn’t just a command to watch what you say.  It’s also a message of opportunity.  We have the wonderful ability to, as the Toby Mac song puts it…speak life.

Dear Jesus,

You are the Word made flesh who came down and dwelt among us to life and die and rise again that we might have life.  Help our words to reflect Your Word that those who hear us will hear a message of hope, love, and life through You.

Amen
