Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - December 19, 2007

Good morning,

Our devotion for today comes from James 1:17 "Every good action and every perfect gift is from God.  These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows."  

Remember to think on these things on your job, home, school, church, business, military, mall, or where ever you are.  The conclusion is unavoidable: self-salvation simply does not work.  Man nor woman has no way to save himself or herself.

But Paul announces that God has a way.  Where man fails, God excels. Salvation comes from heaven downward, not earth upward.  "Every good action and every perfect gift is from God" (James 1:17).

Please note: Salvation is God-given, God-driven, God-empowered, and God-originated.  The gift is not from man to God.  It is from God to man through Jesus the Christ.

Merry Christmas!

Your brother in Christ,
J. H. Flakes, III
