          Daily Devotion

                                                  JULY 27


Good morning <<First Name>>, as you go through this Friday, just take some time to reflect on the privilege it is to be part of the body of Christ, and that you are God’s temple, filled with His Holy Spirit.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: THE HEAVENS DECLARE GOD’S GLORY SO WHY DON’T WE?
Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

Unfortunately, many Christians don’t live as though God dwells within them. The rest of creation seems to be doing what they were created to do. The animal kingdom reflects the glory of God in so many ways, that we stand in wonder and awe of it. All living creatures operate by divine instinct, but they are not created in the image of God as is humanity.

Here is a poem that humorously illustrates the differences between humans and animals:

Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree;
   and talked of things that were said to be.
Said one to the others: “See here, you two!
   There’s a rumour afloat that can’t be true,
That man descended from our lofty race,
   To think of such is a great disgrace.
No monkey ever beat his wife,
   or starved her child or spoiled her life;
And whoever heard of a mother monk
   parking her babes for another to bunk,
Or passing them on from one to another
   till they couldn’t tell who was their mother.
And another thing you’ll never see,
   is a fence around a cocomut tree.
If a fence I should build ’round a coconut tree
   starvation would force you to steal from me;
And there is another thing a mink won’t do,
   that is go out at night and get on a stew;
Then use a gun, a club, or a butcher knife
   to take another poor monkey’s life.
Man may have descended, the ornery cuss;
   but brothers, he didn’t dsecend from us!”

Makes you think!

Let us pray together:
 Prayer (pray aloud with me):  Dear Heavenly Father, as I look at the wonder of Your creation, the life of the animal kingdom, I stand in awe of Your handy work. It truly declares Your glory, and yet I see how humanity has tainted your world with the stains of sin. I also acknowledge that we Christians, Your children have not lived as though You dwell within us. I confess my sin in this and repent renounce of every action that has given witness to that me not living as though You dwell within me. I ask by the power of Your Holy Spirit, to make fully aware of Your amazing presence in my life, thus live accordingly. In Jesus powerful name I pray through the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit living within me. Amen.

Blessings,
Jono, Sandy, Michelle & Sarah
