The Power Of The Cross

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. O-bservation: In the very first chapter of the first letter to the young church at Corinth, St. Paul states the main reason why Christ sent him. He hadn’t come to make a name for himself or have the biggest numbers in his ministry or even preach something attractive and popular. NO! Jesus sent him to preach the gospel of the good news of Jesus....

Watch Out For The Spin

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Numbers 15:36 So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the Lord commanded Moses. O-bservation: This is a shocking story. It has to do with a man within the Israelite community who was found to be breaking the Sabbath by gathering wood (Num. 15:32). The people brought him to Moses, and Moses sought the Lord, and the Lord said, “Stone him to death outside of the camp.” A-pplication: The Jews had what is known as the written law (Old Testament), and they had what was referred to as the oral...

By The Power Of The Spirit, Things Change

Scripture says in verse 67 that Zechariah was filled with the Spirit, and then he prophesied an incredible word over his newborn son that indeed came to pass. A-pplication: What a change came over this old man, Zechariah. I say that because sometime earlier the angel of the Lord had...

Show Us Your Power, Oh Lord!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 68:28 Summon your power, God; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before. O-bservation: Here, the great King David, ruler of Israel, asked the Lord of Heaven and Earth for a demonstration of the power of God. He says, “Show Us Your Power, Oh Lord!” A-pplication: When I was a young boy, I remember hanging with other little guys my age and getting into huge arguments over who’s Dad was stronger. I’d get so frustrated that I would finally say, “I’d just love to see you bring your Dad down here, because...

Power, Wisdom, And Understanding

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jeremiah 10:12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. O-bservation: The great Prophet Jeremiah describes the Lord's architecture of the cosmos as we know it. He speaks of the Earth being assembled by God’s POWER. The World being assembled by God’s WISDOM. And the Heavens being assembled, “stretched out," by God’s UNDERSTANDING. A-pplication: Just the sheer POWER of God’s might made the earth from nothing. What do you need made today on your behalf, by God’s POWER? The World was...
