Devotional Reading for the year
The price of being faithful
Proverbs 30:12 “She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.”
This quality is of great importance.
She is not a quitter but is consistent in her love to her husband over the years.
She is a source of comfort and encouragement.
Titus 2:3, 5, 7
What should a wife’s attitude be when her husband is not applying scriptural principles to his role in the home?
She should approach each day as an opportunity to serve the Lord (not just her husband) enthusiastically and whole-heatedly.
Approaching marriage as a 50/50 proposition will not work - each individual will be careful not to give more than 50%, and watch to be sure the other individual is doing his / her part. This will lead to an attitude of selfishness, instead of selflessness. We must determine to give 100%.
DO YOU KNOW THAT ALL HAVE SINNED?
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
DO YOU KNOWTHE PENALTY FOR SIN?

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
DO YOU KNOW YOUR SIN DEBT HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL?

to God . . .” (I Peter 3:18)
WILL YOU REPENT OF YOUR SIN AND TURN TO GOD?
“. . . that they should repent and turn to God . . .” (Acts 26:20b)
WILL YOU TRUST JESUS, AND NO WORKS OF YOUR OWN, FOR SALVATION?
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is
counted for righteousness.” (Romans 4:5)
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his
mercy he saved us . . .” (Titus 3:5a)
WILL YOU TRUST THE ETERNITY OF YOUR SOUL COMPLETELY
TO JESUS CHRIST?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . .” (Acts 16:31)
I CHOOSE TO TRUST JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED PAYMENT FOR MY SIN.
To trust Jesus Christ as your Savior, pray a prayer similar to this one: “Lord, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive my sins, come into my life and be my Saviour. I am trusting You and You alone as payment for my sins. Help me live for You from this day forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
