Woodland 101 Daily Devotion Guide – Lesson 10
Wednesday, November 14
“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch; like me! I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.” The first stanza of the well-known hymn “Amazing Grace” proclaims how God’s grace truly is amazing! It provides a way for us to establish a relationship with God and to have our eyes opened to the working of his hand in our lives. As you consider your faith and spiritual journey in life, take a few moments to share your story of God’s “Amazing Grace.”
Being “holy” is comprised of three different components. It involves: 1) an inward change, 2) an outward commitment to God and 3) an ongoing devotion. As you read Acts 2:36-47, consider the following questions:
- What were the main points of Peter’s message to the crowd? How did people in the crowd respond?
- How did the people who believed Peter’s message show an outward commitment to God?
- What did a life of “ongoing devotion” to God look like for those who believed Peter’s message? Are there similarities between their lives and your life?
“O God, ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved; how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed! How precious is your grace! How amazing is the grace you lavishly provide for all who ask for it in this life. I ask for your grace to flood my heart, mind and soul today. May every fear, doubt, struggle and hardship in my life be swallowed up by your grace and replaced with your peace, patience, strength and guidance. Thank you for how your amazing grace has changed my life. May I share this grace with others today. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
