Devotions with Pastor Jason

  • spiritual warfare

    Paul the Apostle tells us in 2 Corinthians 2:11 - not to be ignorant to the schemes of Satan. Our enemy is clever and cunning and he knows the areas where we are strong and where we're weak and vulnerable. So in light of knowing this we need to be aware that we are in a spiritual battle. We need to be on guard against the wiles of the devil (Eph. 6).

    Paul also tells us in Ephesians 6, to put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil and to take up the shield of faith in order to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one.

    Those darts more often than not are aimed at our thought life. Thoughts about sin, thoughts of depression, thoughts of bitterness, thoughts of discouragement, anger or lust. Thoughts that will distract us from Jesus Christ are fired our way! Our thought life is a real battleground.

    Someone once asked, "How do I know if these are my thoughts or that of the enemy of my soul?" I'll answer that question with another question - Do you like those thoughts when they come? If your answer is - No - then realize today that they're not your thoughts! Don't own them, they are from the wicked one! Satan and his hellish henchmen want to steal, kill and destroy you (John 10:10). He wants to steal your joy, kill your peace and destroy the good work that God is doing in and through your life.

    Christian - know this - you belong to Jesus Christ! Put on the full armor of God and stand in His promises (2 Corinthians 1:20). Greater is He (Jesus) who is in you than he (Satan) who is in the world ( 1 John 4:4). And let's not forget, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37).

  • share this new year

    1Thessalonians 2:4, “But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.”

    Paul the Apostle not only told the church in Thessalonica that they were entrusted with the gospel but so too are we who believe! As believers we’ve been called to share the Good News; to get the gospel out into the world. God entrusted not the angels in Heaven but His servants on earth to deliver the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” “Go” meaning “as you are going.” As you go to the big box store, as you to the grocery store, as you go to the post office, as you go to work, or as you go to school…wherever you are going, share the gospel!

    Now some might be called evangelists, but every believer is called to do the work of an evangelist! Paul the Apostle once wrote to his young protégé Timothy, “according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust” (1st Timothy 1:11). Paul would again write in 1st Thessalonians 2:4, “But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts” emphasizing this sacred trust of the gospel.

    Christian – be faithful to share the gospel that has been entrusted to you even if you don’t see people coming to Christ. How many converts did Jeremiah have? And what about Noah? He was a preacher of righteousness (2nd Peter 2:5) and he didn’t see anyone turn from sin and come to faith in God. After all those years of preaching and still no one really believed. But here’s what we need to remember – Noah was still faithful in what God had called him to do!

    Be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ! Be faithful in what God has called you to do. Be faithful to share the gospel. Be faithful as a witness of Christ as you go about your day. Be faithful in your call as a husband or wife. Be faithful to pray for your children and teach them the Word of God.

    Christian – you may never see the results of your faithfulness, but God does! You might never see the fruit but God does. So simply keep sharing, be faithful, and leave the results up to Him!
