His Blood Shed for Many

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you, I will not dri...

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purg...

The Messiah

1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as i...

In his book Life’s Sentence, Chuck Colson says this: “We humans obviously have a problem of maintaining a steady level of spiritual fidelity.

Today's Devotional

Commitment, Not Love

I am convinced that commitment, not love, is the basis for marriage. It is the fact that we promised each other before God and not some romantic feeling that keeps us together and keeps us faithful to one another. Our promises, not our feelings, are the foundation of marriage.

That’s right!

However, it is easier to keep the commitment if you love the person you are living with. The Bible underscores this when it says, “Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith” (Proverbs 15:17). This is a teaching by contrast. It says that the worst possible meal (herbs and bitter fruit) in an atmosphere of love, peace, and harmony is better than the best possible meal (a T-bone steak from a crib-fattened steer) in an atmosphere of strife and contention. A good steak with a good fight going on is not only tasteless but will usually give you indigestion.

There is nothing more wonderful than to love the person you are committed to.
