Love Worth Finding Devotion for Today

January 27

BIBLE MEDITATION:“...and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21


Are Christians fools for believing in Jesus? Are we serving a false God? If you go to the tomb of Confucius, you’ll find it’s occupied. If you go to the tomb of Buddha, you’ll find it’s occupied. If you go to the tomb of Jesus, you’ll find it empty. He is a risen Savior. Now that’s very important, because, you can take Confucius out of Confucianism and still have Confucianism, and you can take Buddha out of Buddhism and still have Buddhism. But you cannot take Jesus Christ out of Christianity and still have Christianity because Christianity is not a code. It’s not a creed. It’s not a cause. It is Christ Himself.

ACTION POINT:You have a hope that the world needs to hear about. Who can you share that hope with today?

I have to throw in my 2 cents. The devotion today cranked my tractor! I don't serve a dead man, I don't worship some "thing", but I know, serve, and worship the risen Christ Jesus. I don't know about you, but that stirs me! As the old song goes, If God is dead, then who is this living in my soul? LG

This post makes me think about the chorus to a Christian rock song my oldest daughter used to listen to. It went like this: Buddha was a fat man...so what! Muhammed thought he had a plan...guess not! Hindu god is an old cow...You could be a god if you knew how...
My God died on a cross
My God died on a cross

I really enjoy Love Worth Finding when I hear it on the radio! Great teaching, huh? Thanks for the inspiration!
