A Devotion May Be Someone's Only Bible

"A devotion may be someone's only Bible for the day."

Today's Devotion

And Stuff

May have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.  Ephesians 3: 18-19 NIV

We were on our way home from a birthday party where she had a small taste of a bounce house and was eager to get back on it. I thwarted her plans by reminding her we would be going to church the next morning rather than heading outside to bounce.

She didn’t feel church was necessary since Jesus loved her . . . and stuff. Her innocent proclamation was actually very powerful. We often allow the “and stuff” of our relationship with God to become a second thought. Although Jesus does love us, He also wants a relationship with us. He desires that we sink into His Word and fully explore the dimensions of a relationship with Him. 

While God’s love covers us, it’s the “and stuff” that carries us through the troubles of our days. His unending grace, constant presence, and perfect plans are all part of the “and stuff” that my daughter has yet to fully grasp.

As you revel over how much Jesus loves you, dive into His Word and discover just how much other stuff there is.
