Devotion for Wednesday, October 21, 2020
“I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ” (Galatians 1:6-7).
The world is filled with many ideas and options. Christ came to save as many as believe from the destruction of death the comes through sin. Either Christ saves you or else you remain in your sins. P.C., inclusiveness, happy thoughts, or any other alternative does not change the truth of the salvation which is in Christ alone. Do not reject the only hope there is, but come into the full Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Lord, grant discernment that I would see where I am being led astray. Help me to not chase after those words which tickle my ears, but instead help me hold fast to the unchanging truth of the Gospel revealed once for all. Let me be gracious to others, but firm in commitment that I may never be led astray. You have revealed the truth and have given the words of eternal life.
Lord Jesus, to whom else can we go? There is no Savior but You and no grace but that which You have purchased for us from the cross. Lead me along the narrow path that I would now and always hold fast to the truth You have revealed. Let me not be led astray, nor lead others astray, but live into the truth of Your salvation which You alone have made possible for all who believe. Amen.
