    Many have asked me if it’s okay, based on 1 Corinthians 7, to marry an unbeliever. Some think that such a union can result in the salvation of a spouse, almost like an automatic ticket to heaven. I don’t believe that is what the apostle Paul intends to convey. While it is true that a person can have a sanctifying influence on their spouse, salvation is an individual matter.

    Let’s look at the passage. First, Paul writes to encourage those who are already married to an unbeliever to stay married and not get divorced: “To the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband” (1 Corinthians 7:10, 11).

    Then Paul goes on to explain, “A woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband” (verses 13, 14).

    What does it mean that the “unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife?” We find the answer in verse 16. “For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?” We also read that husbands “may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear” (1 Peter 3:1, 2). In other words, your example can be a saving influence to an unbelieving spouse. But there is no guarantee of salvation.

    Again, the passage in Corinthians is specifically for couples who are already married and one becomes a Christian. If you’re already married to an unbeliever, don’t automatically get a divorce. Be a positive influence in his or her life. For those who are not yet married, Paul’s advice is best: Do not join your life with an unbeliever.

    SIMPLE?
    Or maybe it is. Because all of this boils down to one thing—to love. God, the God who made the universe and everything in it, deciding to come down into the mess and the trouble and the ordinariness of our daily lives. God coming down out of heaven and into a young woman's womb. God, becoming one of us.There are many ways to show love—even at a distance. God could have sent an angel. He could have showered His blessings on us from far away. He could have even stuck with the prophets we were already used to. But He came Himself.And because Jesus came, everything is different. Because this is the beginning of the Gospel, the beginning of the Good News—which is for me and you and everybody, which goes on forever.THE PRAYER: Lord Jesus, thank You for making Yourself our new beginning. Amen.Reflection Questions:* When do you most want a new beginning?* Tell about a time when you went yourself to help someone.* Why do you think Jesus calls Himself the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (see Revelation 1:8)?Advent Devotions were written by Dr. Kari Vo.

  • Good day brothers and sisters. I pray that this finds you well and content from the Thanksgiving festivities. I must admit that I am overjoyed at the win Michigan had over Ohio State. Now they must face Iowa to have a chance at the playoffs. I pray that they win again. Whenever you hear of a big win by a team and they talk to the Coach and players, they almost always mention how it was a team effort. Do you know that our walk with the Lord is a team effort too? Let’s see what the Smart Book has to say today;
    Psalm 25:1-10 King James Version
    25 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
    2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
    3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
    4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
    5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
    6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
    7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
    8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
    9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
    10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
    1 Thessalonians 3:9-13 Amplified Bible
    9 For what [adequate] thanks can we offer to God for you in return for all the joy and delight we have before our God on your account? 10 We continue to pray night and day most earnestly that we may see you face to face, and may complete whatever may be imperfect and lacking in your faith.
    11 Now may our God and Father Himself, and Jesus our Lord guide our steps to you [by removing the obstacles that stand in our way]. 12 And may the Lord cause you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; 13 so that He may strengthen and establish your hearts without blame in holiness in the sight of our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints (God’s people).
    Look at how Paul and the Ministers that worked with him prayed for the Saints of the Lord in Thessalonica day and night. We were meant for prayer. We all have a ministry of prayer for the Saints, God’s People. Who are the Saints? They are; all born-again believers (saints) have been reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, made holy and set apart for God’s purpose. We are all on God’s team now. Winning and learning His way is a team effort. Let’s all do our part to stay on the paths of the Lord, paths of mercy and truth, and to keep His covenant and His testimonies. Let’s pray for and minister to one another.
    The Lord bless and keep you, His Face shine upon you,
    Chaplain Loehne

    AN AMAZING FACT: George Washington Carver was born to slave parents in Diamond Grove, Missouri. He was rescued from Confederate kidnappers as an infant.
    Carver is perhaps the nation’s best-known African-American scientist. In the period between 1890 and 1910, the cotton crop had been devastated by the boll weevil. Carver advised farmers to cultivate peanuts, and before long, he developed more than 300 different peanut-based products—everything from milk to printer’s ink.

    At Tuskegee, Carver developed a crop rotation method that alternated nitrate-producing legumes—such as peanuts and peas—with cotton, which depletes soil of its nutrients. Following Carver’s lead, southern farmers soon began planting peanuts one year and cotton the next. While many of the peanuts were used to feed livestock, large surpluses quickly developed. When he discovered that the sweet potato and the pecan also enriched depleted soils, Carver found almost 20 uses for these crops, including synthetic rubber and material for paving highways.

    George Washington Carver was not left as an orphan. His slave owners loved him so much that they adopted him when his mother was carried away by kidnappers one dark night when he was a baby. They cared for him as their own. Carver grew up to be one of the greatest turn-of-the-century scientists in American history.

    We live on a planet torn by war and sin. Jesus promised His disciples, before the crucifixion, “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:18). Carver longed to see his mother again, but that was not to be. We too have a longing to see our heavenly Father. We can be thankful that this longing will be fulfilled.
    KEY BIBLE TEXTS
    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27

    Upper Room Devotional for November 27th, 2021
    I knew no other students in my new sixth-grade class. I cried every day after school, and I felt alone, scared, and empty. I begged my mom not to make me go and even asked her to homeschool me. I was afraid of being alone all day. One day I was determined that I was not going to school. ...

  • GOD'S WORD FOR TODAY
    DAILY DEVOTIONAL
    CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
    READ ROMANS 1:1 THROUGH 4:25
    When Jane was sick for an extended time, she did not leave home except for doctors’ appointments. Her church friends visited, bringing cards and food. While she appreciated their efforts, it was not the same as worshipping with them. Finally, the day came when she returned to church. What a welcome she received! Many said they had missed her.



    The church is a God-ordained meeting place for Christians. The purpose for gathering is so Christians will grow in faith. Paul realized the power of believers’ fellowship.



    I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong—that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith (Romans 1:11–12).



    Every Sunday people with a myriad of needs enter houses of worship. Christians should ask God what they can do to make other worshippers stronger. A smile, a handshake, and a prayer can go a long way. God will use those who make themselves available.



    Prayer Suggestion: God, please help me to help others.

    Quicklook: Romans 1:11–17
