The Light You Have

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Philippians 3:16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained O-bservation: All of us are probably like the people who were part of the young church at Philippi. They wanted more information about how to live this new life of faith, yet they had made tremendous mistakes in living the part they had already learned. So here, St. Paul said, “Let’s, first of all, live up to The Light You Have!” A-pplication: I’ve used this illustration, I’m sure, over the past eight years or so that I’ve been writing these daily devotionals.

Any And Everything You Will Ever Need!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Philippians 4-19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

All Good!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Philippians 1:12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. O-bservation: St. Paul wrote these words to the young Christians at Philippi. He was writing from prison, so they knew he had and was at the time suffering for the sake of the gospel. But he said to them that the things he had suffered for the gospel’s sake had actually advanced the gospel. He told them that the entire prison guard knew he was there because he preached the good...

As Long As Jesus Is Being Promoted

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Philippians 1:18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice. O-bservation: From a prison cell in Rome, St. Paul wrote the newly established church at Philippi. He told them in earlier verses that he knew the gospel of Jesus was being preached and promoted in some cases through men who were preaching for self-promotional and other selfish reasons. But Paul said to the Philippian Christians, “As Long...
