THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

W. Paul Jones tells of a woman who shared her memory of
childhood as a polio victim.

"When my mother left me in Sunday School, I always asked
to wear her locket.
She thought I liked the locket. That wasn't it at all.
I knew I wasn't worth coming back for, but I also knew that
she would come back for that locket."

Light from the Word.

Sometimes, we Christians tend to think of our acceptance in relation
to our present experience.
When we are doing well, and our hopes are bright, we feel good
about our acceptance.
When we are not doing well, and our hopes are dashed, we doubt
our acceptance.

Isn't it wonderful to know that Christians, born under the blood of
Christ, are ACCEPTED!?
Our feelings of highs do not make us more accepted.
And, our feelings of lows do not make us less accepted.

In HIM we are accepted!
In CHRIST - the "BELOVED!"
In Him we are objects of God's divine grace, divine love, and
divine redemption.

Yes, we are sinners. And if we focus upon our sins, we shall
certainly feel ashamed and rejected.

But our focus should be on CHRIST - the "BELOVED!"
He never changes!
His love is always the same.
God has "MADE" it so, and He will never unmake it!

Wear the blood of Christ upon your heart always.
It means divine redemption.
And "for the glory of His grace"
He shall surely return for that!

Love ya!
