In his devotional book Sacred Meditations the young Rev. Johann Gerhard (d. 1637 AD) meditates with beautiful grace upon the Salvation we have in Jesus Christ our Lord. Many of these devotions were written by Gerhard during his own times of suffering, grieving, and even serious illness. For nearly twelve years now this book has been a part of my own daily devotional life. I have attached a free .pdf copy in the link below and it is my hope and prayer that it will be a help and blessing for you. Like Gerhard we are being called to turn to the Lord our God and see His mighty salvation in the midst of our own tumultuous world. May God bless and keep us now and forever. Amen.
