Today's Devotion

» Devotion - April 24, 2014

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

This is the Day the Lord Has Made!

When I was a youngster, my father bought a stand-up poster, probably 18"x24" on which that verse was printed underneath a picture of a 12-18 month-old child. The child was eating spaghetti. And of course as little ones eat, they don't seem to think they'll get the full nutrients unless they try to absorb some of it through their skin. :-) So, this little one had taken the bowl of spaghetti (yes, noodles and sauce) and had dumped it over his head!

Of course, after beginning to "wear" the spaghetti, the child discovered that it wasn't as pleasant an experience as he had anticipated, so the child was now sitting there, covered with spaghetti and sauce, and crying his eyes out, miserable. At the bottom of this picture it read: "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Yes, life can be messy. Unfortunately, often we cause the messes ourselves, because of our own sinfulness.

Yet, we rejoice!

How can that be? Because of Jesus. Jesus' death washed our sins away. And Jesus' resurrection guarantees that we, too, will get out of the grave someday. No doubt about it! Trusting in Jesus' wonderful work of salvation, we WILL go to heaven.
 
And now, on every day that God still grants us life here on earth, we rejoice in the living hope that we have through Jesus. Even on those days when there's some spaghetti sauce running down our face!

Prayer: 

Jesus, you are the reason for my joy that can’t be taken away even on difficult days. In you I rejoice, today and every day, for your blessings of forgiveness and eternal life.  Amen.
