Daily Devotional for Wednesday October 11, 2017


Romans 5:9 (NASB) Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.


It’s something we don’t like to talk about, but reading God’s Word, and yes, the Old Testament too, we see God’s wrath. It was and is a terrible thing, but the act of one man changed the world and eternity forever. His precious blood was poured out for ALL. His willingness, despite the pain and suffering, to give up His life for us was the greatest act of love. Have we ever spent some time at the foot of that cross realizing that the debt of our sin was paid in full? Now, we have a decision to make—do we accept it Him in full or do we make some excuse and choose to walk away from that act of love? Three days after the cross, there was a day of glory. Like today’s verse shares, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Jesus Christ.


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.
