May 28, 2020 – An Eternal Perspective (Synod Devotion)

Lynn Daily Devotion

Dear Trinity Family, Here’s today’s devotion from our synod. Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17,18 Imagine a regular day. …

May 27, 2020 – Praise God For His Acts of Power

Lynn Daily Devotion

Pentecost was a pretty exciting day. It started with the continued anticipation of the arrival of the Holy Spirit. Then there was the sound of the rushing of a violent wind. Then the tongues of fire appeared. The Holy Spirit had arrived! And he gave them to ability to speak in other languages. That’s a big day. Of course, the …

May 26, 2020 – Trust Jesus

Lynn Daily Devotion

“Mommy don’t leave!” “Daddy, don’t go!” It’s heart-wrenching to watch a small child’s reaction to separation. They don’t understand. They don’t have an adult’s perception of time or priority. They can’t see that sometimes Mom or Dad have to leave to take care of them. All they know is the fear and the pain. They have to learn to trust …

May 25, 2020 – Pentecost Power

Lynn Daily Devotion

We still get to experience the most exciting part of Pentecost. The most exciting part wasn’t the sound of the wind or the tongues of fire or the crowd that gathered. It was God’s pouring out the Holy Spirit onto his disciples. Centuries before, God had told his people that it would happen. In the middle of prophecies of judgment …

May 23, 2020 – Live as Strangers (Synod Devotion)

Lynn Daily Devotion

Dear Trinity Family, Here’s today’s devotion from our synod. “Live your lives as strangers here.”1 Peter 1:17 Live as strangers? It sounds like pretty shoddy advice when you first read it. You mean we shouldn’t make friends? We shouldn’t care about our family? We should be apathetic about others and not get involved in our community? It can’t mean those …

May 22, 2020 – One More Sight (Synod Devotion)

Lynn Daily Devotion

Dear Trinity Family, Here’s today’s devotion from our synod. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in …

May 21, 2020 – Still There (Synod Devotion)

Lynn Daily Devotion

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. Acts 1:9 I would assume that most of us have had the experience of watching a jet airliner flying across the sky. Eventually, to our eyes anyway, it gets so small that we can’t see it anymore. It’s not really …

May 20, 2020 Aha!

Lynn Daily Devotion

Don’t you just love “aha!” moments? When your mind is opened and you can see something you never knew before? I wonder how many “aha!” moments the disciples had after Easter. For three years Jesus had been teaching them. And, for three years they mostly didn’t get it.               Here in Luke 24 Jesus opened their minds. Think of that aha moment …

May 19, 2020 – Reminders

Lynn Daily Devotion

My phone buzzed again. It just reminded me of another appointment. It’s always doing that. Good thing, too. It’s easy for me to get lost in what I’m doing and then I forget about what’s coming next. God gave a reminder like that to the congregation in Colossae. He had Paul write it down to remind us, too. Good thing. …

May 18, 2020 – Little Things

Lynn Daily Devotion

Did you ever think that God isn’t doing much these days? Evil people are doing evil things and they seem to be getting away with it. Bad things happen to good people and nothing seems to be done about it. Where are the miracles? Where are the acts of God? What is God doing? Chapter six of the book of …
