Group Devotion (January 23, 2017) “For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:8) “A person is successful to the degree that he knows and follows God’s plan for his life.” I was taught this decades ago and have basically adopted it as my definition of success. Dudley Hall with “Kerygma Ventures” shared this in a seminar at a church we were members of in the 1970’s. This week I am focusing on 2 Peter 1:3-11. One question many have is why am I bored in church or my Christian life. We look for external, ecstatic things to bring meaning to our Christian life. We forget to look on the inside. Or, as I have been sharing, “Abiding in Christ.” Here are four points Peter gives us in the passage about boredom or feeling “useless” in our lives as Christians: 1. If a person is not involved in achieving useful goals, he is bored. 2. Many people live a very dull life even though they are a part of the family of God, only because they have not included these qualities as goals for their personal lives. 3. When boredom is present we fail to express our potential in life. 4. Our potential is the character of Jesus and these qualities describe His character. Peter tells us we are to be diligent in adding these 8 qualities to our lives: Faith Virtue Knowledge Temperance Patience Godliness Brotherly Kindness Love These are not just automatically added to our lives. Peter says to “give all diligence” in adding these qualities to your life. This is a conscious choice each of us makes.

Group Devotion (January 20, 2017) “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” (Romans 13:1) “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” (1 Timothy 2:1–2) Today is transition day in America. Many, and I may say, most are excited about today and looking forward to a greater nation moving forward. There are many who are disappointed and fearful of the direction of the nation. As with all changes in the president of the United States, there are concerns. We have a responsibility to the one in office. We are subject to the governing authority in our nation. We realize whether we voted for the president in office or not God has put him in office. We are also to pray for the president. I hope all prayed for the outgoing president as he served in office and will continue to pray for him and his family as he enters into private life. Love him or hate him remember he is loved by God. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” (Psalm 20:7) We know God is in control. Therefore, we trust Him. Human government is God’s instrument to carry out His will and purpose. Today and every day pray for the government God has put in place. The government is placed by go so we can “lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

Group Devotion (January 19, 2017) “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” (Romans 12:1) The idea of a one-time commitment that last for eternity. This is what Paul tells us we do when we accept Christ. We not only are saying we want Christ salvation to be able to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. We are making a commitment to Him for a lifetime here on earth. Our body becomes His temple, His dwelling place. We may not fully understand this commitment. God does not call us to do the unreasonable. Our bodily sacrifice is in response to what God has already done for us. It is in response to the mercies of God. God gave His all for us, we therefore, should give every ounce of our being for Him. Our sacrifice to God is a constant, continuous. We are not committing to God today to take that commitment back tomorrow. This sacrifice is not only on Sunday in the church building, it is sacrifice wherever we are anytime of the day. Our sacrifice does not cater to our own desires and needs, but to the desire of God working in our lives. Our salvation is a total commitment to God willing to give our all to Him.

Group Devotion (January 18, 2017) “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.” (Romans 7:18–20) As a Christian, we do not want to do anything that goes against the will of God. The problem is we are just like Paul. We realize in our flesh there is no good thing that dwells in us. Paul had a desire to do the will of God. He understood outside the Spirit of God he could do absolutely nothing. We can become frustrated wondering why we fail in our spiritual life. We go to church, conferences, read our Bible, listen to good Christian music and still there seems to be something missing. We do everything right except for one thing. We do all the surface things but we seem to forget the most important one thing we have to do. We have to let go of our will and allow the will of God to dwell in us. This is why it is so important to be continually connected to God. Remember Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

Group Devotion (January 17, 2017) “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12) The Word of God is living. We should be living in the Word of God. The Word of God is a sword used not to kill but to bring life to the spirit, separating the spirit of life from the death of the world. The Word of God is light. It reveals the darkness in our lives. Where the Light of Christ is the darkness of sin is removed. Why would a professing Christian not want to live in the Word of God?
