Romans 5:20

Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.

God’s grace is greater than all your sin!

You say, “You don’t know the failure in my life. I fail God; I ask forgiveness; then I turn around and fail Him again.” Maybe you would say, “Even today before I started reading this devotional I failed God spiritually; and now I cannot even approach God because I know He doesn’t want to see me...

1 Corinthians 15:53-57

For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, `DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory. O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the...

Galatians 6:12, 14

Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. ...But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Colossians 2:13-14

When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having cancelled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

When you were dead, He made you alive!

We were made by God as spiritual beings. Our s...

James 4:4-5

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

God takes sin very personally!

Wow. The passage catches you off guard, doesn’t it? This passage is written to Christians! Such emotional, relational language is unexpected.

Listen carefully. James knows that the way we need to ...

Ephesians 1:7-8

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.

Forgiveness is in God’s nature!

We often think that it is only with great effort that God can bring Himself to show us grace and to offer us forgiveness. Sometimes we even go further and say in our hearts, “God could not forgive me again. I cannot even approach God...

Matthew 7:21-23

Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?” And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTISE LAWLESSNESS.”

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Not many people are willing to walk Jesus’ way that leads to life!

Jesus’ way is narrow. Almost everything in the Sermon on the Mount makes us a bit uncomfortable. It is n...

John 19:28-30

After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfil the Scripture, said, “I am thirsty”. A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

It is finished!
