Live and Walk By The Spirit

Galatians 5:25-26 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another. NASB It is hard to separate these two verses. They go together in the same context of living and walking by the Spirit and staying humble. We can’t do…

You Are Doing It Wrong

Galatians 4:19 My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you— As I was coloring with my youngest, she gave me a marker in order for me to color the hair of a princess. Since I know my princess very well I realized she gave me the wrong marker…

Lord, How Did You Do It?

I don’t believe it is necessary to offer specifics. Just to seriously contemplate the question is enough to fill the mind with wonder. If you have a fair knowledge of Jesus, you begin to see some answers. But how did he do it? How did he hang in shame and unbearable pain while listening to…

Freely Give

Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.   Have you ever been charged for something that was supposed to be free? I remember my brother doing that when we were little. My dad would buy a churro and divide it among the kids,…

Your Talents to Teach Jesus

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” – Matthew 3:11. Everyone has a special talent; something you are good at doing. We all have something important…

Be Positive

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. 10 For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.”   You may not know this, but when I…

Breaking the Shackles

During our last pre-teen devotional we discussed a problem most of us face as Christians. We like to hold on to the burdens that weigh us down. We struggle, because we don’t turn everything over to Jesus. It may be bad habits, bad company or any other sin in which we are entangled. To demonstrate…

Who Are You Jesus?

The woman at the well in Samaria said, “I know Messiah (Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” Jesus said to her, “I am he.”  (John 4:26)   “I am the bread of life. The living bread that came down out of heaven.” (John 6:35, 51)   “I am the…

Vision

Do you ever see pictures or experience breathtaking scenery that make you wish you could live there? Then, for weeks and possibly months or longer you find yourself daydreaming about your life there? As time continues, you start making plans to revisit that place with hopes of making your permanent residence there? Do you ever…

Misunderstood

1 Samuel 1:13 “As for Hannah, she was speaking in her heart, only her lips were moving, but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk.” (NASB) Have you ever tried to read lips? I have tried, but I hate to say I’m not good at it. When people whisper or people…
