Daily Devotional for Monday November 20, 2017

Scripture:

Romans 5:8 (NASB) But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Observation:

I don’t like to think about it for long, because it scares me deep down to my core, but what if there was no God? For me personally, I know I would be where I am today. I think that my life would have taken a far different course. Growing up, I was a child who was, more times than not, driven by anger. It wasn’t that I was bad all the time, but the things I have done in my rage… well, let’s just say I am not proud of them. Although I know I have been forgiven and am starting to forgive myself, if it wasn’t for the love of my parents, family, wife and the many who I have hurt along the way, I would never come to understand who God is to me. A loving and forgiving God who cares so much for me and wants me to know His love that He gave the life of His Son. He didn’t just give His life, but a life given to pain and suffering and death on a cross to show me just how much He loves me. For me, God is a forgiving and loving God. Who is God to you? 

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
