Daily Walk Devotional


Daily Walk Devotional

Take an epistle you have read recently and make it your marching orders for the next week. Be a doer of the truth.

Excerpt from today’s reading:

 

About every seventh day, you’ll have the chance to pause and reflect on what you’ve been learning. You can use the following devotional to guide your reflections if you’d like. And don’t forget to share what you’ve been learning from the Daily Walk Bible on Facebook or Twitter!

 
 
   
 

Daily insight:

 

The epistles you have read this past week may seem at first to have confusing and even contradictory messages.
“After all,” you might ask, “am I supposed to ‘Bolt the Door’ (2 John) or ‘Open the Door’ (3 John)? Am I supposed to give thanks for painful circumstances (1 Peter) or avoid the source of that pain (2 Peter)? If good works can’t save me (James), then what are good works really good for anyway?” The key is in the context.
You should bolt the door if someone is selling you poison (and certainly, false teaching is every bit as lethal as poison), but you should open the door to faithful teachers and preachers of the truth.
You should give thanks for circumstances you cannot change, but you should work hard to change things you can change—such as the presence of false teachers in your church.
You should remember that good works cannot save you, but that you are saved for the purpose of good works.
Take an epistle you have read this past week and make it your marching orders for the coming week. Don’t just read the truth—be a doer of it.
