9/14/12 Daily Devotion

2 Peter 3:10-11 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. [11] Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives

What a joy it would be if, within the Word of God, we would find nothing but words of happiness. What a joy it would be if, within the Word of God, we would find only words of guidance towards the prosperity we would all love to enjoy. How then, if this was the case, would we be warned about the reality of eternity? If we only heard messages from the positive side of the gospel, if we only studied the joyous occurrences within scripture, would we really be ready to stand before God in judgement? While it is profitable to absorb the joys of the gospel, it is even more profitable to open our hearts up to all aspects of God’s Word, thus giving us a clear picture of who we need to become and why.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see the positivity within the more difficult to to swallow aspects of Your Word.
