Restore Them

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 6:1 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. O-bservation: As St. Paul began to close out his letter to the church at Galatia, he was concerned for those believers who would be found to be involved in a sin of some description. Paul said those who live by the Spirit should “Restore Them.” And he said to do it gently but be careful in case the RESTORER should get caught...

True Freedom Is Right Here! Right Now!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. O-bservation: The church at Galatia, which Paul founded, had struggled mightily with going back to its old ways of religious law. They had been set free from all bondages by the Lord, but instead of growing in their faith, they were turning back to old religious practices. The Apostle told them, “True Freedom Is Right Here! Right Now!” A-pplication: As I write, the entire planet has its eyes...

Is It From God Or Is It From Man?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 1:11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. O-bservation: The Apostle Paul, writing to the young church at Galatia, reminded the church and all of us today that the gospel he had preached he did not receive from humans. Paul’s gospel had been given to him by Christ himself. He went on to talk about people who preach something other than the word of Christ. When they claim to be speaking the word of God, they are liars and hypocrites. A-pplication: Through the years,...

Sowing And Reaping

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. O-bservation: The Apostle Paul, as he was preparing to close out the letter to the church at Galatia, reminds us that a man or woman reaps whatever it is that they sow. It’s part of the law of “Sowing And Reaping.” All of life has to do with the “Law of the Harvest.” A-pplication: During this season, I’ve been preaching a Bible series at the church I’m pastoring here in Miami, Florida, and it has to do with “Sowing And...

Faith Brings The Blessing

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 3:9 So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. O-bservation: In this passage of scripture, St. Paul told the church at Galatia not to rely on the law to experience peace with God. He said Abraham, the Old Testament Jewish patriarch, had originally stepped out in faith to seek the new land God promised to give him. He did not know where he was going but depended solely on God’s word. Thus he was called “The Man Of Faith.” Paul promised that if they would rely...
