DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Day 19

Matthew 5:48, NIV

     One of the questions to which I responded when ordained as an elder within the United Methodist Church was this:  Are you going on to perfection?  One of the three theological strands that tied together the way of salvation for John Wesley is the idea of sanctification or holiness.  Wesley believed that through the work of the Holy Spirit, God is reforming the human spirit into the image of Christ, the author and perfecter of the Christian faith (see Hebrews 12:2).  C.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Day 18

     I pray you weathered the storms that swept through the Greater Cincinnati area last evening. The wall of clouds left widespread damage across the tri-state area. Early reports claimed that 167,000 homes were without electricity. Our home was one such example.

     Strangely enough, as I surveyed the neighborhood in which my wife, Cathy, and I live, was spared from great harm. Suddenly, I felt a rush of gratitude well up in my soul. Though I had debris strewn about the yard, I thanked God that no one around me was injured.
