DAILY DEVOTION


HI!

A business man was having trouble with his sales company.
He decided to call in a consultant.

Before the consultant came, he prepared a lengthy
presentation of historical facts and figures.
He even prepared a large map to show all the sales areas.

Pins were placed in the map with the salesmen's names on them.
After presenting the factual information to the consultant,
the businessman asked, "What do you think I should do FIRST?"

The consultant thought a moment, then said, "Well, FIRST
I think you should take the pins out of the map and stick
them in the salesmen!"

SCRIPTURE______________________________

1 Peter 1:2-9
2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and
sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you,
and peace, be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of
gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found
unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see
him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and
full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
KJV

LIGHT from the WORD.

Need a "boost" in your spiritual walk with God?
Just read what all God has done for you!

You are the "Elect," chosen because God knew by
His omniscient "foreknowledge" that you would
surrender to the Lordship of Christ.
That "foreknowledge" caused God to "work all things
together for good"
to you. (See Rom. 8:28)
He made sure you heard the gospel, so you would be
convicted and convinced, and know Christ as your Lord and Savior.

He has sanctified you by His Spirit's entrance into your heart.
(See 1Pet. 2:2)
And He has justified you by the "sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ."
(See 1Pet. 2:2)
Grace and peace has been multiplied to you!

You are a NEW CREATION in Christ, because you have been
BORN AGAIN!

The hope (of heaven eternal with God) has been SECURED
by the resurrection of Christ from the dead.
That hope is of an inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled,
and is reserved for you by God Himself.

And now, you are being "kept" by the power of God through
FAITH until the ultimate revelation of that eternal hope!!

Today we walk by FAITH and NOT by sight!

This gives us a reason to GREATLY rejoice!
Even though the trials of life may be difficult at times,
our "hope" cannot be taken away by the world!


Therefore, even though we haven't received the fullness of
heaven yet, we HAVE RECEIVED the "end of our salvation"
That is FAITH that brings us to the ultimate destination!

Ain't God GOOD?!?!

Love ya!
