This Is Not A One Man Job!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

O-bservation:

As he closed out his famous letter to the church at Ephesus, St. Paul told them to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Then he spoke concerning being completely dressed in the full "Armor of God." I believe he was telling them ... "This Is Not A One-Man Job!"

A-pplication:

How many times have you ever gone to work without your clothes on? I thought so. A football player gets dressed for the challenge. An astronaut gets dressed for the task ahead. Special attire is required for a surgeon to operate. Yet, oftentimes, as "Followers Of Jesus" we have a tendency to feel as though it's just another day alone in our daily routine. However the "Routine" is rife with potential disaster and special attire is required. The next several verses give us the proper attire for our daily "Routine." The greatest thing about this verse, and this special armor, is that it reminds us that our power is found in the Mighty Power Of The Lord. He has promised to be with us every SECOND of the journey. Because of "His Mighty Power and Presence," we can move forward into today's challenges knowing ... "This Is Not A One Man Job!"

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, I love You this AM! I am thankful that You are with me every step of the way again today. Also, thanks for the special attire, I'm sure I'll need it. Putting it all on Now! Amen

Night And Day

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Romans 13:12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

O-bservation:

St. Paul reminded the Church at Rome, and he reminds all of us today, that salvation is near at hand. That salvation, of course, is the Coming of the Lord. In the previous verse, he told us that it's closer now than when we first believed. Because of this, the Apostle told us we should disrobe ourselves of anything pertaining to "The Night," and instead dress ourselves with the "Armor of the Light."

A-pplication:

The devil's kingdom operates in the darkness, while the Kingdom of God operates in the light. They are as different as "Night And Day." Paul tells us that decent living and dress occurs in the daytime, while the activities of the night lend themselves to the flesh. He mentioned carousing, drunkenness, sexual immorality, debauchery, dissension, and jealousy. Those are clothes of the flesh, adorned at night. But the "Armor of Light" is to be worn "Night And Day." Paul mentioned these clothes in Ephesians 6:14–17. They include: The Belt of Truth, The Breastplate of Righteousness, The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, and The Sword of The Spirit, which is The Word of God! See what I mean by ... "Night and Day?

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Thank You for another beautiful AM, and that I can serve you "Night And Day!" Help me live with the same spiritual clothing in the Night as You help me wear during the Day. Amen
