THE UPPER ROOM 29 APRIL 2022 DEVOTIONAL, FRIDAY

TODAY AND FOREVER
Mark Karpinski (North Carolina, USA)

TODAY’S READING
Titus 3:3-7

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God’s love for me is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5 (NIV)

The Baltimore Orioles have been one of the worst-performing teams in baseball the past few years. But as a lifelong Orioles fan, I still root for them. If I stopped cheering for the Orioles because they have been a losing team recently, I would be a “fair-weather fan,” someone who cheers for a team when they are doing well but ignores them when they are doing poorly.

Sometimes I act as if I worship and follow a “fair-weather God.” That is, I mistakenly believe that when I am good and obedient, God is near to me and blesses me. But when I stumble and falter, God pulls away and ignores me. But the truth is, we have a loving God who is with us always, during our successes and our failures.

Titus 3:4 states, “When the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.” God’s desire is always to be close to us so that we can live in joyful service in this life and look forward to spending eternity in heaven with God.

I don’t give up on the Orioles. Most important, God never gives up on us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for your promise always to remain close to us. Help us always to remain faithful to you. Amen.
