Grabbing the Lifeline of Hope

Grabbing the Lifeline of Hope

We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God… — Hebrews 6:18-19 The Message I am haunted by this passage. The promised hope.

You Are Fathered by God

Editor’s Note: Happy Father’s Day from Devotionals Daily! We hope you enjoy this excerpt from John Eldredge’s Fathered by God.  One of the most haunting experiences I have ever had as a man took place on an early summer day in Alaska. My family and I were sea kayaking with humpback whales in the Icy

Nothing Is Lost

The Incarnation Continues

And what a thing to celebrate! The entire pageant comes down to this: Jesus took on a genuine humanity. And of course, this

The Invasion of Christmas

From Heaven’s Point of View Her child was snatched away from the dragon… Then there was war in heaven. — Revelation 12:5, Revelation 12:7 NLT I would pay good money to have a nativity scene with Revelation 12 included.
