Devotionals Zone

Need to give a DEVOTIONAL at the next meeting or gathering?

Looking for a 'little something' to encourage someone, or re-focus a group?

These devotions are about children, children's ministry, or Christian living, but are primarily designed for adults rather than for use with kids, as most of the other ideas on the site are for direct ministry to children.

Have a nice devotional you have shared? Please share it here too!

All Access Feed My Lambs

The obvious question, "Do you love me more than these?" when asked three times, ultimately "rocked" Peter's world. In order to take seriously Jesus' commission, "Feed My Lambs," Peter had to change his whole orientation to ministry. Now he had a ministry mandate that included nurturing the children, the lambs! Therefore, his obediently humbling himself to minister to children became the "litmus test" of his loving Jesus. Dare we do less? (Based on John 21:15-20)

God's Will
