Welcome to DevotionsA Daily Connection
I’ve been a preacher since June 1999 and I’ve seen a few things. That does not mean I am an expert. In fact, I still feel like this is an area of struggle. But through trial and error, and even by watching others, I’ve learned many things NOT to do. And I have also learned some things that we CAN do. If you want to be able to successfully serve and help a friend or family member who is grieving, start here.
Jesus came to rule over the earth as the Messiah and Satan made an offer he thought Jesus couldn’t refuse.
Satan tempted Jesus to jump from the temple pinnacle. Why did Satan choose this temptation? Why would Jesus be tempted to do it?
Why would it have been wrong for Jesus to turn stone to bread? It’s about character, and that’s decided by the things we tell ourselves. See what Jesus did.
God wants us to overcome temptations, but He did not leave us to figure it out alone. He has shown us the way by a glimpse into the temptations of Jesus.
Salvation comes through faith. Merit is not part of the equation, but works are. That’s because God defines faith as more than belief. Faith requires actions to be effective for salvation, but more than that. It requires zeal.
Jesus’ baptism was important. Its importance has been missed by a few assumptions and false ideas. Learn this valuable lesson for your faith.
We’ve all said it–Sorry–but words are not enough. When we need to go from sorry to healing, the heart must change and actions must come from it.
Kung Fu can teach a great lesson about worshipping God. One common characteristic is that both are ancient, and they emphasize the connection to the past.
Some people think wisdom is inherent: that we are either born with it or not. Others seem to have too many excuses for lacking it. How do we get it though?
Fake news. False information. How do we know that our knowledge is correct? See why it all begins and ends with a basic understanding of God.
Loneliness, heartache, and sorrow, are all temporary. Our darkest days will see light as long as we hold on to the God of salvation.
Worry debilitates. It robs you of joy, and even hurts your relationship with God. Your focus will determine whether your anxiety becomes worry or faith.
The spiritual heart is a part of every human life, but sometimes we dismiss part of it as unimportant. Emotions are vital to Christians. Here’s why.
