“Great Day” Monday 01/22/2018
Unless you have respiratory problems you likely don’t give much thought to your breathing, it just…happens.
God created us that way. Our need for God makes Him the very heartbeat of our existence.
In the 17th chapter of Acts, Luke writes; “The God who made the world and everything in it gives all men life and breath and everything else. For in Him we live and move and have our being.”
A recommended song to accompany this devotion is “Can’t Live A Day” by Avalon.

The Chapel Quotes
““God created sex and He said ‘it was very good’. God created sex as a bond between a husband and a wife. God intends sex to be enjoyed frequently in marriage.”
“We all have our struggles. We all have our demons. We all have our resemblance to the moon, we each have our dark side. If you think you are standing strong, be careful, any of us could fall into sin.”
“Choices have consequences. When we lower sexual standards we lower almost all family standards.”
“God wants us to bond socially, relationally, mentally emotionally, and when we have made a commitment, bond sexually.”

Our Devotion: “Relying on the Keystone” by Elizabeth Hartmann of Carrollton, Ohio, a professional writing major at Taylor University.
Read Isaiah 28:16
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17
The bricks grated against each other as they slid into place. As students added their bricks, the archway slowly stretched over the rounded filler shape my instructor had placed to support the bricks until the keystone was inserted. Finally, only one brick was needed – the keystone. My art teacher shifted the bricks until they were firm and tight. He shoved the keystone in the gap, but it wouldn’t fit. Smiling at the room of students, he said, “It won’t fit without some pressure.” He preceded to use a rubber mallet to pound the keystone into place. When he removed the support, the brick arch stood firm upon the table. He shook the table, but the arch held strong. The bricks relied on one another with the keystone holding them all together. It is because the keystone was pounded into place that the arch could stand.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to rely on you as our firm and stable keystone. Teach me to trust that you will hold me together when the earth shakes. Amen.

Probing: Harbingers, Cycle Three
By Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky
Bethany House, PB, 370 pages
Brenda, Andi, Tank, and the Professor are a team whether they like it or not. Forces beyond anything they’ve ever experienced have drawn them together, sending them on missions to combat an otherworldly evil. They’ve always completed their missions before, but the stakes continue to rise. Faced with more impossible challenges from Hollywood reality shows to pirates, this unlikely team must work together and come through or the whole world will suffer the consequences.
In this third installment, the authors succeed in weaving a story full of intrigue and action. Because this book is composed of four separate missions or sections, each one has great momentum and avoids the lulls that sometimes result from long, drawn out stories. This in addition to unique characters results in a book that more than maintains the readers’ interest.
Readers who enjoy mysteries and science fiction would especially appreciate this novel.
This book reminds us of the impact the media and technology have on our modern world. It also encourages its readers to think more deeply about their worldview and the implications it and their beliefs about God will have on their understanding of truth and morality.
