Weekly Devotional

“And when all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king, ‘What portion do we have in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse. To your tents, O Israel! Look now to your own house, David.’ So Israel went to their tents” 1 Kings 12:16. Only a one year-old when his grandfather, David, died and so a kid while his father was living for God, Rehoboam came of age during the time of idolatry’s rise in Israel while Solomon’s weakness for foreign women stole his heart away. With a country in a spiritual decline and never having developed a faith of his own, a great legacy in a fading memory was all that the forty-one year-old king had to hold onto. Yet, from his moral bankruptcy, Rehoboam tried to become a strong king over God’s people all on his own without God, and the Northern Kingdom believed salvation could be found in an even more corrupt Jeroboam instead. None understood that salvation is found in no other name but Jesus’. No fallible man can ever lead a people, whose citizenship is in heaven. So many today look to the Rehoboams and Jeroboams of this world, but we put our trust in ‘Jesus 2024’ for our hope. Who do you trust?

“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” Romans 12:4-5. Often, we had a large group that came to the North Country to knock doors for a VBS or meeting. Their numbers would double our attendance, and the work to house and host would so exhaust our small group that we didn’t have the energy needed to follow-up well. There was so much work and buildup to our Centennial Celebration just a few weeks ago that we may have such a mixture of relief and sadness that we want to just rest … or return to a calmer time. But, by doing that we would lose the unity and momentum that we have gained as the body of Christ. Each line of “God’s Family” speaks of how Jesus has not only saved us through the gospel to make us His body but how we work and look forward to heaven together. The chorus says, “And sometimes we laugh together, sometimes we cry; Sometimes we share together, heartaches and sighs; Sometimes we dream together of how it will be When we all get Heaven, God’s family.” How can we move forward together?
