Love Worth Finding 11 January 2024 Devotional
Read Love Worth Finding 11 January 2024 Devotional by Adrian Rogers, Thursday Message. As you study today’s devotional, remember this; “Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:15 (NLT)
TOPIC: Do You Recognize God as The Creator?
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.” – Romans 1:18-19
Suppose I were to pluck some parts out of nowhere, just cause them to appear, and then put them in a bucket and shake them around for a while, and then they become a button and then after a while a compass; and then after a while a steam gauge; and then after a while a speedometer, and then a gas meter, and finally a watch. I’m wearing the watch and I tell you, “That’s the way it came about.” You’d say, “Adrian, I just don’t believe that.” Of course not! How could such a thing happen? But somehow, people have thought that something as wonderful as the human eye just simply happened.
Now I looked up the word suppress, in many translations, and let me give you some of them. Other translations include, “hold back the truth,” “smother the truth,” “repress the truth,” “stifle the truth.” All of them mean essentially the same thing—they resist and seek to hold back the truth of God. They do not want to know. Now blindness is tragic but willful blindness is horrible. There are none so blind as those who put out their own eyes. It’s not that they cannot believe; it is they will not believe.
- How do you regularly recognize God as the maker of all things?
- When are you tempted to ignore or suppress the truth found in Scripture?
Talk with a fellow believer about any areas in which you need to hold to the truth and ask your friend to help hold you accountable.
