Making Melodies

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 87:7 As they make music they will sing, “All my fountains are in you.” O-bservation: The Psalmist was saying all of my joy, hope, encouragement, and victory are in you, speaking of Zion. That was the home of the people of God in the Old Testament. However, with the birth of the Church in the New Testament after Jesus the Messiah’s sacrifice on the cross and subsequent resurrection from the grave, New Testament writers and theologians believe that the Old Testament prophecies concerning Zion were really a vision of the Church to come....

LASTING

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. O-bservation: Shortly before St Paul died, he wrote these words to young Timothy, his disciple.

The God Of Reason

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jonah 4:11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left-and also many animals? O-bservation: These are the words of God Almighty to Jonah, his prophet. Jonah had rejected God’s directive to him to go to Nineveh and preach. Jonah didn’t like the people of Nineveh and so jumped on a boat headed in the other direction. A storm came up, and Jonah knew that if they didn’t throw him...

It’s Time For Pastors To Pray

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Joel 2:17 Let the priest, who minister before the Lord, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, Lord. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a bad word among the nations. Why should they say among the people’s, ‘Where is their God?” O-bservation: Through the prophet Joel, God was preparing his people for what was to come. He told his people that it was time for the priests of God to weep in intercession between the porch and the altar in Solomon’s temple for revival to...
