Forgiveness

Posted by Michael Lane on 09/29/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 8 votes : Accessed 30188 times
Description: Forgiveness is difficult, and we often have many reasons to avoid doing it. Perhaps the hurt is too deep or too recent. Perhaps the person has not apologized or feels no remorse. This devotional will examine all of these reasons and help us to overcome them in order to offer the forgiveness the Lord commands of us.

Description: Spiritual warfare is an unpleasant concept, and not one we like to think about or talk about. Nevertheless, it is very real and we need to be equipped to engage the enemy.

You Never Thoroughly Intended It

Posted by Michael Lane on 04/30/07 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 8 votes : Accessed 5417 times
Description: If we consider Christianity to be a life-long journey, then surely the destination is a perfect and complete union with Christ. If we stop to take a look at the things which prevent us from reaching that goal, it will appear that there are hundreds of little things on the journey which block our way, but in reality, there is just one simple, common thing which prevents us from perfect union with Christ.

Adulterous Hearts

Posted by Michael Lane on 12/03/07 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 7 votes : Accessed 11144 times
Description: How does our sin look to God? Does He see it as a mistake? A little problem? No, it's much worse. Our sin is like adultery. In this devotional, we look at a parable of a loyal wife and her unfaithful husband to try and comprehend how deeply our sin grieves God.

Humility and Thankfulness

Posted by Michael Lane on 02/10/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 6 votes : Accessed 30044 times

The Hero of the Story

Posted by Michael Lane on 06/01/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 6 votes : Accessed 9161 times
Description: Our perspective will help determine our reaction to trials and difficulties in our life. If we see our life as a story where we are the hero, we will constantly ask, "Why God?"

Almighty God

Posted by Michael Lane on 02/02/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 5 votes : Accessed 14095 times

Work Hard, Play Hard

Posted by Michael Lane on 07/29/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 5 votes : Accessed 12328 times
Description: God surely wants us to make the most of our time on earth, so we tend to jealously guard both our work and leisure time so that none of it is wasted or interrupted. But what does this kind of lifestyle do to our relationships, especially our relationship with Jesus? This devotional examines why it's so important to trust God to tell us how to spend our time wisely and make it meaningful.

God Is Good

Posted by Michael Lane on 08/29/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 5 votes : Accessed 8011 times
Description: Often when we pray, we do so "just in case" it might help, but we don't usually expect God to actually come through. Why do Christians have such a hard time trusting in God's goodness?

Human God

Posted by Michael Lane on 10/18/07 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 5 votes : Accessed 4204 times
Description: We have no trouble remembering that Jesus was God, but might we minimize and overlook the fact that He was also fully human? Jesus was not just God in a human mask, nor was He merely a spirit indwelling a human body. Jesus Christ was fully human.

Obsessed with Distraction

Posted by Michael Lane on 09/27/10 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 4 votes : Accessed 19241 times

Love Our Enemies

Posted by Michael Lane on 04/24/08 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 4 votes : Accessed 16385 times
Description: Jesus commanded us to love our enemies, but to fully appreciate this commandment, we need to understand the type of love He means.

Spring Cleaning

Posted by Michael Lane on 05/10/09 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 4 votes : Accessed 12222 times
Description: Keeping our lives free from sin is a bit like keeping our house clean and in good repair. There are chores we must do daily to stay on top of it, but sometimes that is not enough. Sometimes we need to compile a list of all the little things that need to be fixed or cleaned and then perform some much-needed spring cleaning.

One Answer

Posted by Michael Lane on 06/23/09 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 4 votes : Accessed 6291 times
Description: If we were to die today and meet Jesus at the gates of Heaven, what could we say to convince Him that we should be allowed into paradise? Could we tell Jesus that we prayed to be saved when we were young? Could we tell Jesus that we tried our best to live a good life? What kind of answer would suffice? This devotional looks at what scripture proclaims to be the one and only answer we should be prepared to offer.

A Foundation For Faith

Posted by Michael Lane on 01/11/09 : Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 in 4 votes : Accessed 4954 times
Description: A pilot flying through clouds has to trust her instruments. What can a Christian use to keep themselves on the right path when they have to navigate through storms?
