Christ Crucified | Easter Devotional by Katherine Kehler – Christian Article

This is the last week of Lent, also called Passion Week, and I have been reading and reflecting on the last days of Christ and His crucifixion. I will be forever grateful for Christ’s willingness to go through the agony of carrying our sins (the sins of more than six billion people), and to suffer extreme physical pain — the torture of being whipped and nailed to the cross — and rejection and loneliness. When I think about the love…

God’s Grace | Thoughts about God Daily Devotional – Christian Article

“In Christ we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” — Ephesians 1:7 Thought Forgiveness! What a sweet and precious gift. What we were powerless to fix, make up or pay for, God did for us in Jesus. With him, each day is a fresh start and rebirth of Springtime. But my, such a terrible cost he paid to give it to us! Prayer Thank you, Father, for your anguish…

Easter Devotional by Gail Rodgers – Christian Article

Beth purchased the chocolate bunnies and headed to the parking lot. Company was coming and she still needed to get groceries and clean. She made a mental note to get extra eggs for the kids to color. It was Easter week. They wouldn’t likely get to church. Her mental check list went on. She knew she was too busy, but she squeezed God in where she could. I’m sure God knew how easy it would be for us to do…

Triumph in Tragedy | Devotional by Max Lucado – Christian Article

Please open your Bible and read John 20:1-10 What do you say we have a chat about grave-clothes? Sound like fun? Sound like a cheery topic? Hardly. Make a list of depressing subjects, and burial garments is somewhere between IRS audits and long-term dental care. No one likes grave-clothes. No one discusses grave-clothes. Have you ever spiced up dinner-table chat with the question, “What are you planning to wear in your casket?” Most folks don’t discuss grave-clothes. The apostle John,…

Easter Devotional by Alec Niemi – Christian Article

The word “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise or joy. In the original Rabbinical Hebrew it is interpreted to mean ‘save, we pray’. As we read part of the Easter story we are reminded that as Jesus was entering Jerusalem, “a very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son…

I Want to Know Him – Christian Article

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him” Philippians 3:10 I have been thinking about Jerry McGrath. He was a marvelous singer and performed at many of our staff conferences. He had been in the secular entertainment industry when he was struck down with leukemia and was longer able to sing. He yielded his life to the Lord, and the Lord touched and healed him. After…

The Most Unimaginable Thing Jesus Endured on the Cross – Christian Article

I cannot possibly fathom the physical pain Jesus endured before and during his crucifixion. Before he was crucified, Jesus was scourged. Romans would strip a man of his clothing, and flog his back, buttocks and legs. A Roman soldier would have used a flagellum, a whip of several strands, perhaps 3 feet long, and each strand would have jagged pieces of lead and/or sheep bone in them to rip open the flesh. Romans were not limited by the Jewish law…

Poured Out Like Water | Easter Devotional by Charles Spurgeon – Christian Article

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.” Psalm 22:14 Did heaven or Earth ever witness a sadder spectacle? In soul and body, our Lord felt Himself to be weak as water poured out on the ground. Placing of the cross in its socket shook Him with great violence, strained all His ligaments, pained every nerve, and more or less dislocated His bones. Burdened with His own weight, the glorious sufferer felt the strain…

Inner Peace | Thoughts about God Devotional by Gail Rodgers – Christian Article

“You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is focused on you because He trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 We all need two kinds of peace in our lives. We need inner peace, and we also need outer peace with others. God addresses both. He tells us what to do to find both. Inner peace begins with a relationship with God, and it continues as we focus on His strength and allow Him to fill us. We can exchange…

Peace I Leave With You – Christian Article

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27). Does life sometimes seem overwhelming? You’ve received a troubling report from the doctor. One of your children is in crisis. You wonder how you will pay your bills. Then there’s a car accident. It seem like trouble comes in bunches. The disciples found themselves in a…

What Matters to You Matters to God – Christian Article

The first miracle of Jesus was at a wedding—no small event.  For several days, there was gift-giving, speech making, food-eating, and wine-drinking.   Hospitality was a sacred duty  The absence of wine was a social embarrassment.  Mary asks her son to help, and he tells her that his “time has not yet come.” But he changed his plan to meet the needs of his friends. This miracle tells us that what matters to you matters to God. You are his child.…

God’s Sufficiency Exceeds our Needs – Christian Article

For every need, there is a name of God that meets the need.  Our lack is perfectly engineered to magnify His perfect sufficiency.  The great I AM stands ready with His supply from His eternal riches.  His infinite supply magnifies in bold relief our complete dependence on Him. It is not I, but Christ.  Celebrate how he reveals himself to you this week in his names. When we need a hug, Abba-Father takes us in His arms to love us…

The Trustworthy Character of God – Christian Article

Read: 2 Samuel 7:21-22 Whom do you trust? It isn’t easy to find many people who are true to their word. At some point, we all learn the hard way that anyone other than almighty God can disappoint us. Let’s look at the Lord’s character to discover why He can be trusted. He is the one true God. Back in Old Testament times, it was common for people to actually carve and worship a false god. Today, it is more…

Yielded Heart | Devotional by Kathy Cheek – Christian Article

Why is it so hard to surrender and yield to a high and Holy God, who is our Abba Father? Yield:To relinquish control to someone or something;To give something up to someone else;The opposite of being in control or in charge. Yes, it’s a hard thing to do; but when it’s done, surrender yields a sweet reward of intimacy with the Lord. The relationship between Father and child becomes knit together in strength, trust, and love. That’s when we learn…
