Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

HOST: Michael Whitworth

If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

Is Jesus seriously suggesting that we should resort to mutilating our bodies for the sake of avoiding sin? Not necessarily, but there are two very important principles that Jesus is trying to impress upon us with this harsh imagery. First, He is making the point that there is nothing in this world, even including our own physical lives or bodies, that is more important or that should be valued more than our eternal salvation. Second, He is making the point that if there is something in our lives that is coming between us and our faithfulness to God, that thing should be removed (unplugged, disconnected, gotten rid of, severed) from our lives. The point is that there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that is more important than spending eternity in heaven with God, and our lives should reflect that great truth!

Why is heaven and eternal salvation so important?

Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
