Devotion 1/9/11

Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

I am honored to share with you daily devotions, but I will do this only six days a week…So let me encourage you to enter the house of God, on His day, the Lord’s Day, and receive your message from one of His many dedicated servants. May God bless you as your enter His house to receive His message and His guidance.

Devotion 1/8/11

Revelation 1:9 I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

John was exiled to the island of Patmos because of his refusal to discontinue the spreading of the gospel. The island of Patmos was located in the Aegean Sea, approximately 50 miles from the mainland.  Its surface was found to be protruding with various sizes of rocks, thus  making living conditions less than optimal for anyone. But even here upon this undesirable place, John continued to live within the purpose God set before his life. John had the opportunity to end his service believing that there was nothing else he could do, but instead he found ways to continue to serve within his present circumstances. As we grow, the manner in which we serve God begins to change. There are things that we are no longer able to do as we once could, but there are still many other opportunities to serve God, many other ways we can make a difference for the sake of the gospel.

 Prayer Starter:

Lord, I want to be used to bring about Your desires within this world. Use me any way You can.
