Daily Devotional for Sunday December 03, 2017

Scripture:

John 3:27 (NASB) John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given him from heaven.

Observation:

Ever thought about belonging to God’s family business? Christians are in the ‘family’ business. So often, we think that all we have is because of who we are or what we have done, but the reality is all we have is from Him. I can get caught up in Satan’s lies that what I have is because of what I have done. Baloney! All I have is from God and getting to that point can be tough but not impossible. We fall to the daily pressure of thinking we are in charge when we aren’t. We were created for one reason: to bring glory to God. How we do that is up to us, but we must realize the example we share with the rest of the world when we say that we are Christians and then beat each other up racing to be first or to be called the greatest, and making it all about us. Let’s make it about Him today.

Application:

Personal Application: Continue spending time with the Lord daily. Sow righteousness and reap the fruit of God's unfailing love.

Family Devotional: Read this chapter to your family. Ask them if anything spoke to them as you read. Talk about their answers and show them that one important aspect of this chapter is that we must continue to spend time with the Lord and keep our hearts focused on His plans and purposes. Pray for them.
