Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

Life in the Son (July 21)

Life in the Son (July 21)

Let’s avoid thinking that “eternal life” is different only in that it lasts longer than our earthly life. It is indeed “eternal” because it is unending, but more than that, it is of a different quality. It is not only longer, but it is better.

Getting the Right Answers (July 21)

Getting the Right Answers (July 21)

Devotion to God

Devotional strength must be built up by constant, disciplined practice over time. Paul reminded his young friend Timothy of this when he said, “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).

DFBS 130 — God wants us to think before we act
