Some Encouraging Words

Posted by Men of Redemption on May 4, 2016

C. S. Lewis“God’s love for man and man’s love for God. About the second of these two, people are often worried. They are told they ought to love God. They cannot find any such feeling in themselves. What are they to do? The answer is the same as before. Act as if you did. Do not sit trying to manufacture feelings. Ask yourself, ‘If I were sure that I loved God, what would I do?’ When you have found the answer, go and do it.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on May 4, 2016

Breakfast of Champions

One of the most important strategies I implement when reading God’s Word is trying to read it with purpose and intentionality. It’s one thing to pick up God’s Word and just begin to read it, then say you’ve read a chapter of two, maybe three on a good day. But what I try to do is get involved with the characters of the Bible I’m reading about. I put myself in their place and ask God to show me what should I do in their situation. I ask God what is it that He is trying to tell me or say to me, and how can I learn and apply His Word to my life, to the situations and struggles I face on a daily basis. But I also want to get to know God on a more personal level, finding out who He is, and what He expects of me and from me. I know it’s a lot to decipher in reading or studying His Word, but if I take reading His Word seriously as I should, I will come to know my Savior in a more personal, relational manner, and keeping holy and reverent acknowledgement to His deity and omnipresent being.

My Daily Devotion

Posted by Men of Redemption on May 4, 2016

Devotions“Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation. And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the Lord where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” So he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” And he said, “I did not call; lie down again.” And he went and lay down. Then the Lord called yet again, “Samuel!” So Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” He answered, “I did not call, my son; lie down again.” (Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him.) And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you did call me.” Then Eli perceived that the Lord had called the boy. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He calls you, that you must say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Your servant hears.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place. Now the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.”  –  1  SAMUEL  3:1-10

Today’s Point of Focus:

Know that God is calling you to task, so trust Him to reveal it to you so that you may hear Him clearly.
