6/20/13 Daily Devotion

James 2:11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.

Christianity would become more popular within society if we were able to follow only those rules and regulations that we felt were necessary. We could remove a few from one book of the Bible, while adding some to another. We could get rid of completely those books that refer to much to how we are to live, leaving us only those that focus on eternity. Well, if we were do this, then there might not be much left to the Word of God when we were finished, but that is exactly what some people and some religions practice. They look only at the positive side of the Bible and avoid the negative, all in the attempt to have a better life. What they fail to understand is this: God wants us to have a better life here on earth, and in wanting this He has laid out before us, through His Word, the proper path for us to follow that will make this come to fruition. But even greater than that, He has also given us the instructions that will lead to a glorious eternity within His presence.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, find me faithfully following Your Word here on this earth, that I might have the blessings of an eternity with You in Heaven.
