We all have those times when we just are down! Sometimes we know why, sometimes we are in the dark as to the cause, but we feel blue and can’t seem to shake those dark feelings. Today’s devotional gives you some of God’s truth with which to combat the blues. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
John 10:27-30 (ESV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
“And if, perchance, thou shouldest remember, O my heart, that thou hast sin yet to overcome, and corruption within thee yet to combat, bethink thee this night that Christ has put away all thy sin, for he is ‘the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth,’ and that he has overcome the world on thy behalf, and said to thee, ‘Be of good cheer.’ Thou hast to fight, but thy foe is a routed foe. It is a broken-headed dragon that thou hast to go to battle with, and the victory is sure, for thy Savior has pledged himself to it. Thou mayest well take thy leisure, for the past is blotted out and the future is secure. Thou art a member of Christ’s body, and as such thou canst not die. Thou art a sheep of his pasture, and as such he will never lose thee. Thou art a jewel of his crown, and as such he will never take his eye or his heart off from thee.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit LI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1905), p. 135]
