• Worship in Jerusalem

    Zechariah 14:10–21

    When Christ returns to consummate history, there will be no one left who tries to rely on his own efforts or foreign gods for redemption. Even those who are finally cast into hell will be forced to acknowledge that He ...Read More

  • Asking, Seeking, Knocking

    Matthew 7:7–11

    We persevere in prayer knowing that our Father in His goodness will never withhold from us what we really need. We also need to recall, Matthew Henry says, that “we often ask that of God which would do us harm ...Read More

  • Is Christ the Only Way?

    John 14:1–6

    Pluralism is the cover that secular humanism has used to persuade Christians to give up their influence in society. Today it is politically incorrect to believe an “intolerant religion” that holds up ethical absolutes. Be willing to stand up and ...Read More

  • Remember the Word

    2 Peter 3:1–2

    The second coming of Christ is another fundamental doctrine of which we will be reminded over the next few days. However, as we will see in 3:11–12, even this doctrine is given to us so that we might be motivated ...Read More

  • Assured by Love

    Romans 5:6-8

    We tend to think secretly (perhaps subconsciously) that God must have loved us for some reason within ourselves. But Scripture says there was nothing in us to love. Have you begun to understand the amazing nature of divine love? Pray ...Read More

  • The Word of a Man

    James 5:12

    Dr. Sproul says that one of the chief differences between us and the Lord is our penchant for breaking promises, while He always fulfills His promises. Think today of a promise you may have not yet fulfilled and then go ...Read More

  • Repentance: A Vital Step

    Luke 13:1–5

    Think back to your conversion to Christ. In what ways did you “change your mind” when you came to Him? From what sorts of behaviors did you turn away? Have you kept the resolutions you made or do you find ...Read More

  • The Prototypical Prophet

    1 Kings 18:17

    We do not believe that the office of prophet continues today. God established the prophets as the foundation of the church, and a foundation is laid only once. However, God’s people are called to build on that foundation alone (Eph. ...Read More

  • Jonah, Son of Amittai

    Jonah 1

    The story makes clear that the sailors onboard Jonah’s vessel are more concerned to obey God than Jonah was. A non-believer’s good deeds can never save his soul, but we should be ashamed anytime non-Christians are more concerned with living ...Read More

  • Jonah’s Anger

    Jonah 4

    Jonah’s depression over the death of a plant (Jonah 4:5–9), Dr. R.C. Sproul tells us, means that the prophet cared more about plants than about people. Jonah forgot that no sinner deserves God’s forgiveness—even a prophet of God Almighty—and ...Read More
