Daily Devotional – Pillar 1 – Who is Man

By on October 1, 2020
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Romans 7:21-25. How can we humans be so loving and ugly at the same time? We live in a world where we create such beauty and pain for ourselves and the world around us.

So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[d] a slave to the law of sin.

The origin of man is vital to the truth?

“Of all kinds of knowledge that we can ever obtain, the knowledge of God, and the knowledge of ourselves, are the most important.” Jonathan Edwards

Who are we as humans? Where did we come from? These are two vital questions that we have been trying to answer for generations. Outside of God, this question has a very different answer. Some believe that stalks drop us off at the doorstep, while others believe that we evolved from monkeys.

Within each of us, we know and hear the call of purpose. If we truly have evolved from nothingness and will return to nothingness, then there is no point in life! We may as well eat, drink, and be merry. It is for this reason that atheistic cultures are some of the most dishonest cultures on earth. They have been taught that there is no reward at the end of this life for those that do good!

A clear picture of human nature and who we were created to be by God is important to living a life of consequence.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Jesus, that in You all things were created. You have created me for the plans that you have. I trust You and the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me for Your glory.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
