Not Defeated (Monday)

Read: Romans 6:12-14; 1 John 1:9

At her youth group outing at an ice skating rink, Piper clung to the handrail when she first stepped onto the ice. She was skating for the first time. It looked so easy, but she found it to be much harder than it looked. She finally let go of the rail and eased out onto the ice. She was doing quite well when her feet suddenly seemed to slide right out from under her, and she fell. "Whoa!" she exclaimed. She got up slowly, went back to the handrail, and hung on once more.

After a while, Piper ventured out onto the ice again. As kids zoomed by, she lost her balance, and down she went. She got up slowly, skated a short distance, and then...oops! She fell again...and again! Piper finally headed for a bench and sat down--and stayed there. Mrs. Bell, her teacher, sat down beside her. "Need some help?" she asked.

Piper shook her head. "It's no use. I keep falling."

"Skating takes practice," said Mrs. Bell. "Forget about falling, and keep trying. Come skate with me. I'm sure you can learn to do it."

Piper wasn't so sure, but she agreed to try again. By the time they were ready to leave, she was doing much better and having a great time.

At church the next day, Mrs. Bell walked up to Piper. "As I watched you learn to skate yesterday, it made me think of our lesson for today," she said. "It's about how we can keep sin from defeating us, and you gave us an illustration of what we need to do."

"Really?" asked Piper. "What did I do?"

"Even though you fell several times, you didn't just sit around and feel bad about it. You got up and went on learning to skate," replied Mrs. Bell. "That's what we need to do when we sin. We confess it to Jesus and ask Him for forgiveness, but then we need to forget it and go on living for Him. He forgives us and continues working in our lives to make us more like Him. We shouldn't let ourselves feel defeated by sin, but Jesus defeated it for us! We can accept His forgiveness and then get back on our feet and keep walking with Him." Betty J. Thomas

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do you feel down and defeated by things you’ve done that were wrong? Do you ask God’s forgiveness several times before you really feel forgiven? If you’re truly sorry for something you’ve done, confess it to Jesus. He promises to forgive you. You don’t have to keep dwelling on what you’ve done in the past. Leave the sins you’ve confessed behind and go on living for Him.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV)

Forgetting what is behind…I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus. (CSB)

Part of the Story (Tuesday)

Read: ROMANS 6:4-11; COLOSSIANS 3:1-4 

 

Rami tore the wrapping paper off the birthday gift from his dad. When he saw the book that was inside, he jumped up and down. "All right! The next Archer Perry book!"

 

"Did I get the right one?" asked Dad.

 

"Yeah! This is the next one in the series I need to read. Thanks, Dad!"

 

After they had cake and ice cream, Rami curled up on the couch and began to read. He stayed there most of the evening, engrossed in another of Archer Perry's adventures. When he finished the last page, he put down the book and stretched.

 

"Did you finish that book already?" asked Dad.

 

"Yep!" Rami said, grinning. "It was so good, Dad! In this one, Archer goes back to the magical land he discovered in the first book to help his friends battle an evil king. They had to fight giant monsters and rescue a princess--but then they found out she was evil too! Things got pretty bad for Archer, but he and his friends won in the end." Rami swished an imaginary sword through the air. "When I read those books, I wish I could be part of the story."

 

"I understand the feeling," said Dad. "But Rami, don't forget that you're part of a much bigger story than Archer Perry's."

 

"I am?" Rami furrowed his eyebrows. "What story is that?"

 

Dad picked up his Bible from the coffee table. "You're part of this story--God's story. It's the story of how He sent His Son to rescue us from sin and save the whole world."

 

"I never thought of the Bible as a story like that before," Rami said.

 

"It's the greatest story of all!" Dad replied. "It's not a story about made-up characters--Jesus is real, and His story is our story. When He died on the cross, He paid the price for our sin. And when He rose from the dead, He conquered death so we could have eternal life. When things are looking bad, we need to remember how the story ends--with Jesus getting rid of sin forever and making the whole world new."

 

Rami smiled as he got up to get ready for bed. "Before I go to sleep, I think I'll get my Bible and read some of that story." COURTNEY LASATER

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do you love a good story? Maybe you have a favorite book or movie that you read or watch over and over, wishing you were part of the story. It’s fun to get wrapped up in a good story, but don’t forget the epic story you are a part of—the one the Bible tells of how Jesus saved the world from sin and will make everything right. That story is real, and it’s the greatest story of all.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE:  ROMANS 6:5 (KJV)

SINCE WE HAVE BEEN UNITED WITH [JESUS] IN HIS DEATH, WE WILL ALSO BE RAISED TO LIFE AS HE WAS. (NLT)

Francis's Painting and Lucy's Dandelion (Wednesday)

Read: MATTHEW 11:28-30; 2 CORINTHIANS 12:9-10

 

"It's not good enough!" Francis frowned at the picture in front of him. It was messy. He didn't like it.

"It is good enough," Mom said, her voice calm.

"Look at that." Francis pointed to a spot where his paintbrush had slipped. "That blue isn't supposed to be there. I'm not going to submit it. It's garbage."

 

"Look what Lucy found!" Dad came into the room with Francis's baby sister in his arms. He helped her hand Mom what looked like the head of a dandelion.

"Oh, Lucy, this is beautiful!" Mom said.

Francis watched in disbelief. But it's all squashed up, and it doesn't have a stem, he thought. It's a weed!

 

Dad passed Lucy over to Mom and came over to the table. "What's that, Francis?"

 

Francis sighed. "I was going to enter it in the contest at the library, but it's no good."

 

"What do you mean, it's no good?" Dad picked up the painting, his eyes traveling over it. "I like it."

"I do too," Mom said. "You worked hard on it, and it really shows."

 

"If you gave it your best, that's what matters," Dad said. "It doesn't need to be perfect. God wants us to use the talents and abilities He's given us so others can enjoy them, and that's what you did with this painting."

 

"God?" Francis shook his head. "I don't want God to see this painting. He wouldn't like it. I wouldn't want Him to see how I messed up."

 

"Francis," Mom said, "God does see that painting, and He likes it. He likes it because you made it and He loves you." Mom held out the dandelion. "I like Lucy's gift because she's my child. It doesn't have to be perfect. And you're one of God's children. He knows all the ways we've messed up, which is why He sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to save us. He loves it when we use our gifts to create new things, even though they're not perfect."

 

"I think your painting is beautiful," Dad said. He leaned over and kissed the chubby cheek of Francis's sister. "Just like Lucy's dandelion." EMILY ACKER

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Are you always trying to be perfect? It’s good to want to do your best, but trying to do everything perfectly will only exhaust you. No one is perfect except Jesus—and He loves you no matter what. He takes pleasure in the things you do for Him, even when they’re less than perfect. You don’t need to be perfect because He already is. Just enjoy the gifts He’s given you.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: ROMANS 8:35 (KJV)

WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST? SHALL TRIBULATION, OR DISTRESS, OR PERSECUTION, OR FAMINE, OR NAKEDNESS, OR PERIL, OR SWORD? (NKJV)

No Excuse (Thursday)

 

Read: Romans 3:19-24

 

"Come on, Aaron. Step on it!" Blake urged his older brother. "You can make the light."

 

"Okay," said Aaron. "Hang on!" With a burst of speed, they zipped through the traffic light just after it turned red. But then Aaron groaned as he glanced in his rearview mirror and saw a police car with lights flashing. He pulled to the side of the road and was soon handed a traffic ticket by the police officer. Blake felt guilty knowing he had urged Aaron to go through the changing light.

 

When their parents learned about the ticket, Aaron made excuses. "I don't see why that police officer couldn't have just overlooked it. All I did was go through one little red light when no cars were coming anyway!"

 

Mom shook her head. "It was both foolish and dangerous not to stop for that light. You broke the law, and now you have to pay."

 

"That's right," said Dad. "You seem to think what you did wasn't so bad, but the truth is that it was wrong." He sighed. "Your excuses remind me of a man I used to know."

 

"Did he get a ticket too?" Blake asked.

 

"No, but like you boys, he didn't think the things he did were so bad," said Dad. "He didn't think he was bad enough to go to hell. That sounds harsh, doesn't it? But he needed to realize that's what would happen if he didn't trust Jesus to save him from his sins. He may have been pretty good in the eyes of the world, but anyone who is honest has to admit to having done at least one wrong thing. And I happened to know this man had done quite a few things that were wrong."

 

"How did you know that?" asked Blake.

 

"Because he was me!" said Dad. "Then God helped me understand that everyone--including me--is guilty of breaking God's law, and the fine must be paid." Dad handed the ticket back to Aaron. "You'll have to pay this fine yourself--but thank God you don't have to pay the penalty for your sins. Jesus has already done that by dying on the cross." Phyllis M. Robinson

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do you think you’re good enough to go to heaven? Have you ever told a lie? Disobeyed at least one time, had even one bad thought, or done some other wrong thing at least once? Of course you have, and God says you’re guilty—you’ve broken His law. There’s a penalty to be paid. Jesus paid that penalty for you so you could have eternal life. Trust Him as your Savior today.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: James 2:10 (KJV)

Whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. (NIV)

The Fixer-Upper (Friday)

Read: Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:22-24

Addy tiptoed around the piles of junk strewn all over the floor. "This place is a mess," she called to her dad. "I don't know why you would want to live here!"

Dad grinned. "But this fixer-upper has so much potential, Addy! You have to look beyond the mess and see what each room could be like with some cleaning up and a little bit of paint!"

"A lot of paint, you mean!" said Mom as she came from the kitchen. "Did you see the color of the kitchen walls? Bright orange! I'd need to wear sunglasses just to cook dinner!"

Addy's parents had been wanting to move out of the city, and this house seemed like a good fit. But Addy wasn't sure she wanted to move into such an ugly house even though she would like having a small yard and space to ride her bike.

"Come take a look at this bedroom, Addy!" Dad said. "It could be yours to decorate however you wanted."

Addy walked into the room and grimaced at the cobwebs and faded wallpaper. But then she started imagining the room painted in a pale purple with white curtains around the big window and her giant stuffed panda in the corner. Maybe she could like living here.

Addy's parents decided to buy the house, and after several weeks of cleaning and painting, they were ready to move in. Addy couldn't believe the transformation.

"This house looks amazing!" Addy told her parents as they were unpacking boxes. "I can't believe how this ugly little house turned into something beautiful!"

"I know how you feel," said Mom. "I never would have wanted to live in this house before we fixed it up. But now it looks warm and inviting." She smiled at Addy. "It reminds me of how Jesus changes us. He takes our sinful, ugly hearts and transforms them by filling them with His love and joy. He makes each of us a new creation!"

Addy smiled. "Well, this house sure is a new creation, and I'm glad Jesus has made me a new creation too!" Kendra Angle

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Has Jesus transformed you from a fixer-upper into a new creation? He can change the ugliest heart full of selfishness and pride into a beautiful heart full of His love. Jesus makes us new creations from the inside out! Trust Him as your Savior and see the amazing work He does in you.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come! (CSB)
