• The Apostolic Church Devotional

    Ephesians 2:18–22

    It may be important to know the historical succession of church leaders, but it is more important to preach the gospel faithfully. A church can be built on the Apostles only if it loves what the Apostles loved and affirms what the Apostles affirmed. That is why it is so important for church leaders to be grounded in the Scriptures. Pray for your church, that it would remain faithful to the gospel and teach it with boldness. View Resource

  • The Cornerstone and Foundation Devotional

    Ephesians 2:20

    Without the Word of God, we do not have access to the teaching of the Savior, and so Christians must always be known as people of the Book: men and women who believe and proclaim the teachings of the Old and New Testaments. Understanding this teaching is a lifelong process of reading Scripture, hearing it preached, encouraging other believers, and more. Are you doing all that you can to learn the Word of God?

  • Founded on the Apostles Devotional

    Ephesians 2:18–22

    Liberals tend to elevate the words of Jesus (except for the ones about hell), over the rest of Scripture. Evangelicals may not do this knowingly, but there is still a tendency to think the words of Jesus (in red letters) are somehow more binding than the rest of the canon. But God’s words are found in the letters of Paul, the law of Moses, and every other part of the Bible. Take care not to elevate one portion of Scripture over another. View Resource

  • The Epistles of the Apostles Devotional

    Colossians 4:7–18

    As you study the epistles over the coming months, occasionally think of what it must have been like to be in the early church receiving a letter from Paul or Peter or John. That same excitement and anticipation about what they would say should touch us today. Ask God to help you read those letters as if for the first time. View Resource

  • What Was an Apostle? Devotional

    Acts 2:15-26

    Paul is suspect to many people. He is criticized for his leadership style, his certainty in matters of faith and practice, and his uncompromising stand for the Gospel. Paul takes prominence as the apostle in Acts. It is important that he be esteemed by all Christians. If you need to reevaluate your estimation of Paul, do so today. View Resource
