Wednesday - Reflect & Pray - ODB

  Reflect & Pray How can you get closer to Jesus today? Do you follow Paul’s “anyone and everyone” approach to sharing the good news about Christ? Jesus, thank You for loving everyone and offering eternal life to anyone who truly wants to know You. Help me to represent You well in the world today.

Wednesday - Today's Scripture / Insight - ODB

  Today's Scripture Romans 10:5–15 (NIV) Insight  In  Romans 10:5–15 , Paul cites multiple references from the Law (the first five Scripture books). But in verses 11 and 13 , he quotes from  Isaiah 28:16  and  Joel 2:32 . When he cites Isaiah, he quotes the Septuagint—the Greek translation of the Scriptures. This is why the quotations don’t match precisely: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame” ( Romans 10:11 ), and “the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic” ( Isaiah 28:16 ). In quoting Joel, Paul uses the Old Testament term  Yahweh  (Lord) and applies it to Jesus. Paul is clearly teaching his readers that Christ is Lord.

Wednesday -Today's Scripture Lesson - NKJV, Logos

 By: Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy Romans 10:5-15 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, ( Lev. 18:5; Neh. 9:29; Ezek. 20:11, 13, 21; Rom. 7:10; Gal. 3:12 )  “The man who does those things shall live by them.”   6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, ( Deut. 30:12–14 )  “ Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above )   7 or, ( Deut. 30:13 )  “ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).  8 But what does it say? ( Deut. 30:14 )  “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):  9 that ( Matt. 10:32; Luke 12:8; Acts 8:37; Rom. 14:9; [ 1 Cor. 12:3 ]; Phil. 2:11 )  if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto s

Wednesday - Fresh Start Devotions - Logos

  Prayer When Herod’s persecution broke out against the church, James was killed, and Peter was thrown in jail in preparation to give him a fair trial before they killed him. The night before Peter’s trial, he slept, chained between two guards, when the Angel of the Lord appeared and awoke Peter. When he awoke, Peter followed the angel’s instructions. Half awake and half asleep, he put on his robe and sandals and walked with the angel past two sets of guards, out of prison. The angel escorted him to the city gates, the iron gates opened by themselves, and Peter walked into the city, and when he did, the angel left him, and Peter was left standing alone a free man. Where do you think he went? He went to where he knew people would be praying for him; he went to Mary’s house. Rhoda, the servant-girl, sat listening to the prayers of the church for Peter. When the knock came at the door, she ran to answer it. Who would it be? Another member of the church coming to pray? The Romans coming

  November 25: You Have to Mean It 2 Kings 15:1–17:5; Galatians 5:1–6:18; Proverbs 8:1–8 Wisdom really isn’t all that difficult to find. We think of this attribute as hidden or fleeting, but the book of Proverbs portrays Wisdom calling out to us: “Does not wisdom call, and understanding raise its voice? Atop the heights beside the road, at the crossroads she stands. Beside gates, before towns, at the entrance of doors” ( Prov 8:1–3 ). When we seek Wisdom, she shows up. She’s everywhere. She’s waiting—not to be found, but to be embraced. The intelligence of Wisdom, the prudence she teaches, is at our fingertips. In Proverbs 8:3–5 , Wisdom cries out, “To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to the children of humankind. Learn prudence, O simple ones; fools, learn intelligence.” Maybe the real problem is that few of us are wise enough to be what Wisdom requires us to be. The folly of humankind may not be in a lack of seeking, but a lack of doing. If we really want something, we work
