The Bible
One of the most staggering truths of the Scriptures is to understand that we do not earn our way to heaven. ...works have a place--but as a demonstration of having received God's forgiveness, not as a badge of merit of having earned it.

Thanks for other Christians
"How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you? Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith."—1 Thessalonians 3:9-10

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was a gifted preacher in Great Britain during the latter part of the nineteenth century. He served the huge Metropolitan Tabernacle in London and helped found a pastor's college and an orphanage, both of which are still in existence today. One night during the last few years of Spurgeon's ministry he shared the pulpit with Mark G. Pearce, a young, gifted preacher, author, and artist. During a break in the service, Pearce said to Spurgeon, "When I was a young fellow, I used to sit over there and hear you expound the Scriptures. You'll never know how much good you did for me. I was so inspired, I could go for weeks just feeding on what you told us and heeding your wise admonitions." Charles Spurgeon was overwhelmed with joy and gratitude. With tears welling in his eyes he said, "God bless you, brother. I never knew I had helped you that much." Sharing our lives with other Christians and helping them grow in their own faith is an important aspect of being a Christian. In prayer today thank the Lord for the Christians in your life. This week as you talk to other believers let them know how you appreciate them and how they have strengthened your faith in Jesus Christ.

"The grace of God leads to thanksgiving, an activity that results in the increase of God's glory as more and more people recognize his goodness."—I. Howard Marshall
 
There's a lot to be learned from history, and this volume, From Generation to Generation, puts a distinctly spiritual spin on lessons from the past. Drawing upon the famous and the ordinary of years gone by, From Generation to Generation finds nuggets of Godly wisdom in every story, making practical application for today. Beginning with a scripture, each entry includes a short edifying story, a miniature lesson, and a quote, hymn, or additional piece from the Word of God to finish up. In this devotional the reader can find wisdom and encouragement in the triumphs and tragedies of men and women from the past and present--such as Matthew Henry, Charles Swindoll, Oswald Sanders, C.S. Lewis, and William Shakespeare.
