November 26 Devotional

The things we do are not proof of our value, worth, or significance. They are not the measurements by which we try to justify our existence. Instead, the things we do are our expression of love to the God who already loves us more than we dare ask or imagine. They are not a resume. They do not earn us anything. They simply say, “I love you, too.”...

Aren’t you, like me hoping that some person, thing or event will come along to give you that final feeling of inner well-being you desire? Don’t you often hope: “May this book, idea, course, trip, job, country or relationship fulfill my deepest desire.” But as long as you are waiting for that mysterious moment you will go on running helter-skelter, always anxious...

Theme for the Week: Loved. Let me talk very intimately and very earnestly with you about Him who is dearer than life.

Theme for the Week: Grace. I do not at all understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us. It can be received gladly or grudgingly, in big gulps or in tiny tastes, like a deer at the salt. I gobbled it, licked it, held it down between my little hooves. ...

Theme for the Week: Grace. God has infinite treasures to give us. Yet a little tangible devotion, which passes away in a moment, satisfies us. How blind we are, since in this way we tie God’s hands, and we stop the abundance of His grace! ...

The grace of God says to you and to me, “I can make last place more significant than first place. I will use prostitutes to teach others about gratitude. I will use lepers as examples of cleanliness. I will take men who persecute the church and make them pillars. I will take the dead and give them life....

Grace is the good pleasure of God that inclines Him to bestow benefits upon the undeserving. It is a self-existent principle inherent in the divine nature and appears to us as a self-caused propensity to pity the wretched, spare the guilty, welcome the outcast, and bring into favor those who were before under just disapprobation [unacceptable to a just God]. Its use to us ...
