Which Last Times?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Peter 1:20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. O-bservation: The Apostle Peter was like every other disciple of Jesus, save Judas, in this one area. Each one of them believed that Jesus would return in their time. In other words, each of them believed that he was living in the “Last Times” before Christ’s return. But when you fast forward to today, you’ve got to ask yourself, “Which Last Times” was he talking about? A-pplication: The other night, I was on the...

Love Covers It Every Time

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. O-bservation: Here the Apostle Peter reminds us all that we are to keep on loving no matter what. Not just that, but he also says we are to love each other DEEPLY. That way, whatever sin has been or is there right now will be totally covered by love.

O-bservation: In this, St. Peter’s first letter written from Babylon to various churches throughout Asia Minor who were suffering religious persecution, he states, “If you’re going through hardship of any kind (CARES), give them to Jesus immediately because He cares for you!” A-pplication: Remember, this was written by the man who would eventually be crucified upside down for Jesus. In other words, Peter knew tribulation in his life. You don’t slide carelessly through life unscathed in any way and then out of nowhere...

ALWAYS Be Ready

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. O-bservation: The Apostle Peter told all of us who follow Jesus to “ALWAYS Be Ready” to give an answer as to why we have such hope when people ask us the question. But when we do give our answer, we must do it with gentleness and respect. A-pplication: What would happen if every time someone asked...

The Lord Is Good

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Peter 2:3 Now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. O-bservation: In his letter to the church, St. Peter talks to all of us about getting rid of everything that is impure in our lives. Impurities break us down, and it’s important that we rid ourselves of such things. He then said, like newborn babies begin to CRAVE spiritual milk so that they can grow, we will also crave the same thing because we’ve tasted that “The Lord Is Good!” A-pplication: I’m not sure if you’re like me, but when I taste something...
