A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, Nov. 24

Updated: Nov 25, 2020


1 Corinthians 15:50-58


verses 53-54: For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”


I have been thinking so much about Pastor Gil’s message on Sunday. Our time here on earth is temporary- our homes are temporary- our appetites, our physical health, our bodies are all temporary. When we show God’s love to others, we do not do it merely to make them more comfortable here on earth- we do it to show them God-to lead them to Jesus. Just like Jesus healing the ten lepers- he wasn’t rewarding them with a healthy body. He was showing them God’s presence, to bring them to Him. May all of our good works leave behind the fragrance of Christ- to lead others to Him. Father and Giver of all Life, I am truly thankful for all you have done for me. May I be worthy. Lord help me to show your love to others through my actions. Amen

20201124 Tuesday, Daily Devotion - 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV)


58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.


“Your labor in the Lord is not in vain” encourages me always. When I look at my English and ability for my ministry, I am so incompetent and ineffective here in the United States. But, when I heard that some people want to read the Word of God more and have more fellowship time with God through prayer and meditation, no labor for the Lord is in vain. God uses everything to work together for…

1 Corinthians 15: 50-58


57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus’ death freed us from sin. I need to be firm in my faith and always attempt to do well and not sin. It is a great privilege to have been saved by Jesus and an honor that God cared about us so much that he gave us His Son. I should always attempt to do the Lord’s service and obey God’s commands.


Dearest Lord, give me the wisdom and grace to increase my faith, so that I may be safe, joyful and triumphant in following you. Amen.

1 Corinthians 15:50-58


51 Listen I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.


It doesn’t matter what happens to our bodies after death, whether buried, cremated or deep six’d, or exposed to the elements. Because at the last trumpet we will all be changed into an imperishable form, whatever that is. I used to worry about people who were cremated because there was nothing for God to work with, but He doesn’t need anything except our spirit.


Dear Lord I realize that You have planned for every possible thing that can happen in our lives and that…

1 Corinthians 15:56-57 - “ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”


There are several words in Scripture used to describe Resurrection of the crucified Christ - atonement, expiation, propitiation, but the bottom line is as stated by Larry D. Hart in “Truth Aflame.” He writes, “In his saving death and resurrection, Christ defeated for all eternity our three greatest enemies: sin, death and the devil.” That is at the top of my Thanksgiving prayer list.


Prayer - Jesus, victor over sin, death and the devil, I give thanks for Your sacrifice for me. Please forgive my continued…
