Daily Devotional for Wednesday July 18, 2018


Acts 3:19-20 (ESV) “Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus…”


Maybe it's happened to you too? My smartphone displayed a message, "Update Required." But no sooner had I updated the phone when my laptop I used displayed the same message. Next, it was my vehicle! Today's verse speaks about times of refreshing, kind of like "updating" in a way, and as I begin to think about the next time I will update my electronic devices I wonder if we have ever thought about updating our relationships. Are there friends that need to hear from you; people who you have lost touch with over the years? And what about your relationship with God? Does that need to be updated? In anything that needs updating, it comes down to a choice—to update, or not to update. But the one update you definitely need to do regularly is your relationship with God. Don't click "ask me later." Do it today. Now. It's the best update available and it's free.
