Of Course, We Do (Thanksgiving Devotion)

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits (Psalm 103:2). There are those who feel there is little reason to celebrate this Thanksgiving. They point to a long list of disappointments and fears. They believe 2020 has been a failure. We never did get relief from the pandemic. It only seems to be getting worse. We can’t go out to our favorite restaurant. In fact, many of them are shuttered. Businesses are closing. Workers are laid…

SFC Merlin Heinecke, MIA

The Beginning of the End

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters (Genesis 1:2). To better understand the end of time, it may help to consider its beginning. After all, the One who started it will end it. We have lived our lives with mountains, oceans, and stars in place. It’s hard to imagine them not being there. They impact our lives. They brush off our feeble…

Happy

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live (Ecclesiastes 3:12). Health is important. Wealth is desirable. So is love. People want these things. But most of all, people want to be happy. A healthy, wealthy, loved person who is not also happy will not appreciate or much enjoy the otherwise good things in life. To say he should, will not change how he feels. His disappointment with life…

Waxing Cold

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:12,13 KJV Sometimes the Bible brings a message that is chilling. This is one of those times. We might dismiss the warning, if it had not come from the lips of the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We might think the words are not meant for us if we…

For All The Saints

“But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever—yes, for ever and ever” (Daniel 7:18). Except in reference to a football team that bears the name, most of us don’t talk much about saints anymore. There was a time when most Christians did. During those years, people thought that a saint was a person who had lived such a holy life they could go to heaven immediately upon death. This was supposed to…

The New Normal

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:5) The phrase “the new normal” carries scary overtones. It tells the wounded warrior, “From now on, you will live with only one arm.” It tells the new widow, “The rest of your life will be without him.” Presently, we wonder if one day it will tell us, “You will always need a…
