What About The First Commandment?

First Commandment

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.—Exodus 20:2-3 (ESV) God’s Power A simple understanding of sin is that we break the first commandment. In Exodus 20, we  read that Moses is to tell the people that they are to have no other gods besides the one  true God. But lucky for us thisRead More

“Home Alone 2 – Stand Still”


But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you! – 2 Chronicles 20:17 (NLT)   Wait On The Lord A devotion that I read this morning ended with these four words, “Wait on the Lord.”  Don’t you know, that prompted me to start writingRead More

How Do We Define Faith?


Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.—Hebrews 11:1 (ESV) Trust In so many places, we hear the word “faith.” But what does this word actually mean? The author of Hebrews defines faith as being sure and being convicted. We are sure in where we place our hope. And we are convicted, knowing those things we’ve never seen. But faith is not blind. Children have faith that theirRead More

How Great God’s Love


How Great God’s Love “We love because he first loved us.”—I John 4:19 (ESV)     WHY WE LOVE In the many religions of this world, we find that so many seek to appease their gods. We see, too, many people who think that if they do one thing correctly, then God will do something for them. This is not how God shows himself to us. God shows us pure love. Love that dies brutallyRead More

We’re All Sinners, So Now What?


We’re All Sinners, So Now What? “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”—Romans 3:23-24 (ESV)  Grace How can someone possibly achieve God’s glory? It is not something that can be done by earning good favor with Him. It is not something that we can find on our own. And that struggle is allRead More

Getting Through Challenging Times


Getting Through Challenging Times “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”—Romans 12:12 (ESV)   Hope How does someone rejoice when they are suffering? When you face the trials of life, how do you be patient? When the noise of this world deafens your ears, how do you lift your voice to God? Only through new life in Christ is it possible to rejoice, show patience and praise God while facing challenges.Read More

“Home Alone” – An Uplifting Devotion


Home Alone Elijah Predicts a Drought Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”  Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah:  “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan.  You will drink from the brook, and IRead More

Do We Really Have All The Answers?


Do We Really Have All The Answers? “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”—Proverbs 3:5 (ESV)   WHAT GOD SAYS Too often we think we have all the answers. We know what’s best; no one else really does. I know what’s best for my family, I know what’s best for my life. The question we must ask ourselves is this: Do we really know what’s best?Read More

God Calls Us


God Calls us “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it givesRead More

For God So Loved The World


God Loves The World! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. – John 3:16-17 The ultimate gospel message In this beautiful message from John 3, we learn of God's motive for sending HisRead More
