God’s Good World

By Bill Bowles

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

1st Timothy 4:1-5

Key Ideas

  • The Spirit of Christ and demon spirits
  • Confusing the surface and the depths
  • The scope of Christian salvation

Action step

Do something special for yourself that will allow you to celebrate being alive.


Lord, keep me sober in my life and faith today, but please deliver me from stuffiness.

This devotion is from a book of devotions written by Bill Bowles, resident of Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor.
