Evening Devotion: Finished

"It is finished!" John 19:30 NKJV It is finished! Three of the most powerful words in all of Scripture. What was finished? The work of redemption that Jesus came to do. Man's separation from God. The Sacrificial system. The power of death, hell and the grave. When we think about those three words, there is... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Know

"Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that... Continue Reading →

True Worship

A familiar story in the gospel of John is Jesus's encounter with the woman at the well. What's interesting is the topic she brings up once she perceives that Jesus is a prophet. John 4:19-26 NKJV “The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain,... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Faith

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1 NKJV I was reflecting on the subject of faith again the other day and the word substance was very prominent in my thinking. Faith is the substance... as I began thinking through the chapter it hit me, there... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Believe

Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.” John 6:29 NKJV Sometimes we can think believing is simply to believe, yet the demons believe and tremble. So is there "more to belief" than just acknowledging Jesus. Yes, acknowledging He is Lord, Romans 10:9.... Continue Reading →

"Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You." Psalm 63:3 NKJV The Psalms are full of reflection on the lovingkindness of God.
