Only Through Faith

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Romans 4:13 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. O-bservation: When God promised Abraham that he would become the heir of the world, Abraham didn’t accomplish it through work ethic or law-abiding. No! It was “Only Through Faith.” When Abraham believed for a promised son, he moved forward by faith, and God blessed him with a son at one hundred years of age! A-pplication: Now don’t get me wrong, it will require work...

People Are Our Heart

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:20 Indeed, you are our glory and joy. O-bservation: St. Paul had struggled to get back to see the church he planted in Thessalonica. He told them that the people in Thessalonica truly were his glory and joy amidst the suffering he faced. Paul had a tent building business that he owned and operated that took care of his financial needs.

O-bservation: In his exultation of the Almighty, King David proclaimed that just as the mountains surrounded Jerusalem, so the Lord God Almighty surrounds His people. Not just for right now, but forever. Mountains surround Jerusalem on every side. Jerusalem itself sets on four different hills. If you’ve ever been there, you know what is meant when they say, “We must go up to Jerusalem.” A-pplication: There is a popular worship song that’s been out for several years that has...

The Least Of These

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Matthew 25:45 He will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” O-bservation: This is a scathing mandate against those who, while on earth, had the chance to reach the broken of society but refused to do so. In the end, Jesus said those people would be confined to a Christless eternity. Jesus said, “Because you did not help them, you, in turn, did not help me!” A-pplication: Many, even today, wonder who Jesus was speaking of when He defined certain...

Enough About You, What About Me?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Matthew 20:20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. O-bservation: This event immediately followed Jesus telling His disciples that He was going to Jerusalem, where He would be crucified and would arise from the dead on the third day. After hearing this, Mrs. Zebedee brought her sons, James and John, to Jesus to ask Him a favor. James and John were two of Jesus' disciples. The favor she was asking for was that her sons could sit on either side of...
