Tyndale Life Application Daily Devotion
Tumblr media
Devotional for May 3rd
Young people, it's wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God for everything you do. So refuse to worry, and keep your body healthy. But remember that youth, with a whole life before you, is meaningless. - Ecclesiastes 11:9-10
Insight
We often hear people say, “It doesn't matter.” But many of your choices will be irreversible—they will stay with you for a lifetime. What you do when you're young does matter.
Challenge
Enjoy life now, but don't do anything physically, morally, or spiritually that will prevent you from enjoying life when you are old.

Tyndale Life Application Daily Devotion
Tumblr media
Devotional for April 28th
And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God's purpose is that people should fear him. - Ecclesiastes 3:14
Insight
What is the purpose of life? It is that we should revere the all-powerful God. To revere God means to respect and stand in awe of him because of who he is. Purpose in life starts with whom we know, not what we know or how good we are.
Challenge
It is impossible to fulfill your God-given purpose unless you revere God and give him first place in your life.

Strive Hard Now For Nothing Is In The Grave
Tumblr media
Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark that is set before you – George Whitefield.
Work is sometimes tough, boring, and monotonous. However, this is not true for those who see their work as their vocation. We should also consider our faith as our vocation, striving hard on everything we do in service for Christ's ministry. Moreover, we work as a result of the saving grace from God through Jesus Christ. 
Bible Reading
Today’s devotional reading is from the Book of Ecclesiastes 9:10. Please, read our recent devotional from the Letter of Paul to the Romans 14:9: Jesus Is The Lord Of The Living And The Dead
Emptiness in the grave, strive hard today
In Psalm 88, we read forsaken among the dead, Like the slain who lie in the grave, Whom You remember no more, And they are cut off from Your hand (Psalm 88:5). Job also said, which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? (Job 3:22). The grave is empty and filled with nothingness. We will be cut off from God's hands. Further, we instinctively know that there is nothing we can do in the grave, for no one is striving hard for it nor looking forward to it.
Let us not waste our time doing nothing and packing a lot of regrets in life. And the biggest regret I am talking about is the insufficient service we give to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Furthermore, our lack of enthusiasm in knowing Him will not be of our benefit. Thus, we have to strive hard in everything we do now and offer everything for the glory of God. 
Strive hard for Jesus Christ
King Solomon wrote, works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and striving after wind (Ecclesiastes 1:14). Our works and learnings should not be motivated by worldly desires. But as Paul said, press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
Everyone should strive hard to work for the kingdom of Jesus. Also, strive to get to know Him deeper. And we are able to know Him better by reading the Scriptures. The Bible will also guide us as we work and interact with other people. Letting them see the works of Jesus with our lives.
Reflection
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.
Do you see your work or role in life as a vocation?
What are the things you strive hard for?
Is the command of Jesus part of it? Accept Jesus Now.
How do you share His Gospel with others?
Are you striving hard to share the Good News with everyone you meet?
An inspiration to keep you striving hard for His glory.

Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13

I know that whatsoever things God has done, they shall be for ever: it is impossible to add to it, and it is impossible to take away from it: and God has done it, that men may fear before him. — Ecclesiastes 3:14 | Brenton Septuagint Translation (BST) Brenton Septuagint Translation of the Holy Bible, 1884.

Moon dust #2 spending our lives
Moon dust #2 spending our lives
What do we spend our lives committed to and is it worth it? In the grand scheme of things will our little projects or our careers have any meaning? When I say ‘grand scheme’ I’m not talking about reflecting on my life upon my death bed but reflecting on my mortal life having been alive for a million years in the presence of God. The only thing that will matter then is the fact that we used these…

Activity versus Accomplishment
Our church is putting thought and prayer into what church will be like after lockdown.  I have a fair idea of what some of it will be like, and it won’t please everyone. Our vicar has his thoughts, our curate too, so too everyone involved.  I’d like to see the continuation of all the extra communication and online presence and our improved meet & greet.  So I’m doing a bit of reading around all…

Identity in the Resurrection
Identity in the Resurrection
When we die we all come to decay. Our life is finished, and we shall not be able to think or to do anything. We all disintegrate into dust. All the dead in the graves shall be called, by the return of Jesus, to stand up and come out of the sepulchres, so that Jesus shall judge the living and the dead. It is known that “the ordinary progression moves from death to the dissolution of the body to…

February 25--CONVERSATION HEART : TIMELY SPEECH
MOUTH MEDICINE: To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: …A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;  Ecclesiastes 3:1,7 [NKJV]
TONGUE TALK: Timely speech can make a great difference in someone’s life. As Ecclesiastes says there is a time for everything, so if we happen to speak into someone’s life at just the right time or if we do not speak at that certain time, our speech and actions could be what God uses to make a difference in their life.
MY PRAYER FOR TODAY: Dear God, I always want my words and actions to be timely. Please help me to be aware of this each day so I might be used of You to speak or act in someone’s life at just that right time. I pray my speech will always be timely because Your Spirit is helping me to discern the time to speak and the time to be silent. Thank You God. Amen.
HEART HELP: And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 1 Corinthians 2:4[NKJV

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV) - He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
