Devotions Week 4:
There is no more urgent and critical question in life than that of your personal relationship with God and your eternal salvation through Christ. ~ Billy Graham
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
(read John 14:5-10)
|The courage to overcome fear.
But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
(read Matthew 14:25-31)
“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”
(read Matthew 16:24-27)
|Faith and action.
What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? …In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
|James 2:14, 17
(read James 2:14-18)
|Trials and Temptations.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
(read James 1:1-5)
|Living for God.
What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ…
(read Philippians 3:7-10)
|Persevere in Love, Faith And Hope.
We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labour prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
|1 Thessalonians: 1:3
(read 1 Thess. 1:1-10)
Now unto Him who is able to keep, able to keep you from falling
And present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.
To the one and only wise God out Saviour be glory and majesty
Dominion and power, both now and forever.
