Daily Devotionals

  • Jesus told the blind man, “Go, and wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated sent)” (John 9:7). Access to the pool of Siloam involved the descent of three sets of stone-hewn steps, five steps each—no casual stroll for anyone, much less a blind man. But he did it, an...

  • “After saying this, Jesus spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes” (John 9:6). Now there’s something you don’t expect to read in the Bible: Jesus spitting. A prayer would’ve seemed appropriate, perhaps a “halleluj...

  • “As Jesus went along, he saw a man blind from birth” (John 9:1). No one else saw him. The disciples saw only a theological case study. “‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’” (John 9:2). They didn’t see a human being. They saw...

  • From heaven’s viewpoint our earth is populated by sightless people. They do not see the meaning of life or the love of God. How else do we explain the confusion and chaos? How else do we explain the constant threat of world war, plagues of hunger, racism, and the holocaust of the unborn? Billi...

  • Christians love to sing the hymn,  Amazing grace!  How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see.  Blind, blind to the promise of eternal life, blind to the provider of life.  We relate to the words of the was-b...

  • On April 21, 2008, Katherine Wolf suffered a massive stroke. She lost her ability to walk, talk clearly, and care for herself.  She went from being a California model to a wheelchair-bound patient.  God stepped in.  In her wonderful book, Hope Heals, she writes, “I felt a d...

  • We’d rather be spared the storm.  Or if the storm comes, let it be mild and our deliverance quick. Let the job dismissal come with a severance package and an offer of a better position.  Let the marital strife turn quickly to romance.  Sometimes it does.  But when it doesn&...

  • Jesus says to us what he said to the disciples on the stormy sea.  “It is I!  Don’t be afraid” (John 6:20). The literal translation of what Jesus said is “I AM; don’t be afraid.”  I AM.  That’s God’s name.  When we wonder if Go...

  • “…[Jesus’] disciples went down to the lake, where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them.  A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough” (John 6:16–18). The disciples were t...

  • During World War I, Biddy Chambers, her husband, and small daughter moved to Egypt, where he served as a chaplain.  He taught, she transcribed.  It was a perfect partnership. Then her husband’s complications from appendicitis rendered Biddy a widow.  All dreams of a teaching min...
