DEVO 07.28.22


“Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.” (Romans‬ ‭11:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬)


- BOTH

- God is both, kind and severe.

- Some only want to acknowledge the kindness and compassion of God but ignore that He is also severe.

- He does require something from those who call Him Lord.

- If He truly is your Lord then you must live like it.

- Lord means that He is Lord over every part.

- Lord over your mouth, your thoughts, your attitude and actions.

- He has called you to live Holy and set apart.

- 1 Peter 1:16 says, “You must be holy because I am holy.””

- ‭‭In Romans 11, the apostle Paul was speaking to the Gentiles who were “grafted in” because of Israel’s unbelief in Jesus as the Messiah.

- He says that God is only severe to those who disobey.

- But He is kind to you if you continue to trust.

- He says, “If you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.”

- The key word is, “Continue”.

- Are you continuing to trust and continuing in your faith, just as when you first believed?

- Every Christian needs to dwell on this scripture and do a true examination of their Heart and “CONTINUE”.

- That means, return to your First Love!

- Remember how excited you were when you first discovered Jesus’ love for you and you responded to His love!

- Remember how you lived and served out of that Love!

- Don’t ever forget!

- And now, Repent, if needed, and “Continue”, the same way that you started!

- Repentance is always available.

- It simply means to turn from your way and return to His way, the right way.

- Continue in the way of Life!

- Have a great Thursday!
