  • I have three friends who are going through a difficult time. One is in the hospital with double pneumonia, one just had knee replacement surgery, and another, as well as her friend, are going to have kidney transplant surgery. One friend is donating her kidney to another. All of these asked me to pray for them.
    The Bible speaks of a friendship between David and Jonathan. Their friendship is one of the deepest and closest recorded in the Bible (I Samuel 18:1-4). We each are committed to God, not just each other. True friends will draw closer together when problems come.

  • Hopefully you read last week’s devotion because I want to expand on what Paul said to the Christians in Colossians 3:1-4. He says, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above ... Set your minds on things above…”

    He uses an imperative ... “set.” The Christian is to seek heaven. We are to think of heaven. Paul realized that you change your actions when you change your thinking and beliefs. In due course your actions will change. So the Apostle wanted us to give a large place in our thoughts to heaven.
