Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

The Season of Advent is the first Season of the Christian Calendar.
During the four Sundays before Christmas – we remember that Jesus came to our world as a babe, that he is coming into our lives, churches and communities today - and that he will return to our world on the Day of the Lord.

It is a good tradition to celebrate “Christ the King” on the last Sunday of the Christian calendar, the Sunday before the first Advent celebrated 4 weeks before Christmas.  The final conclusion of preaching, teaching and celebrations is this:  Christ the King is the fulfilment of God’s promises and the ultimate outcome of the gospel.

For this glorious gift of love and unity and for all our privileges received by the grace of God, we ought to live lives filled with gratefulness.

The results of living a self-seeking, self serving life are before us all the time:  unbearable stress about our jobs, neglected marriages and families, few if any real friendships and the nagging sense at the back of our minds that none of what we do, is really making any difference.

1 Samuel 16:7:  "The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

If the gospel is itself mighty to save, if it is the power of God resulting in salvation, then we need but to proclaim it, in simplicity, in purity, and in dependence upon God, who will by his Word and Spirit save those who believe it. And save only those who believe it, by the grace of God.

I can know all about the LORD without knowing the LORD himself.
I can memorize the whole Bible, know a lot of church tradition and even some theology, and still not know the LORD personally.
Without the fear of the LORD,  all that you will have is facts, but no knowledge, figures but no wisdom, details but no understanding, rules and laws but no morality.

How did God’s grace make a difference in Paul’s life?   How did it meet his needs?

We know the Lord’s plans for us are to prosper and that no harm will overcome us.  What we do not know, is what the journey to victory entails.

We are citizens of God’s Kingdom because we seek to follow Jesus in everything we do. All the wrongs and all the evil and all the bad governance we experience on earth can cause so much fear and anger that it robs us of the vision and passion to receive what God’s plans are for us: to prosper and not to be harmed.
