• Woes for the Hard in Heart Devotional

    Matthew 11:20–24 “

    All of us are children of wrath from the moment of conception and deserve only eternal, conscious punishment for our sins apart from God’s gracious renewal of our hearts to trust in His Son. Nevertheless, the sufferings of hell will be greater for those who know more of the Father’s plan and character and yet remain in sin. No matter how difficult this may be for us to understand (Luke 20:45–47), the more we know, the more accountable we will be. View Resource

  • More than a Prophet Devotional

    Matthew 11:7–15

    John Calvin says the new covenant minister’s preaching is greater than John the Baptist’s because “it holds out Christ as having rendered complete and eternal satisfaction by his one sacrifice, as the conqueror of death and the Lord of life, and because it withdraws the veil, and elevates believers to the heavenly sanctuary.” John the Baptist was blessed, but we are more greatly favored to live in an era more cognizant of God’s grace in Christ.

  • Disciples from John Devotional

    Matthew 11:1–6

    Matthew Henry writes: “The remaining unbelief of good men may sometimes, in an hour of temptation, strike at the root, and call in question the most fundamental truths which were thought to be well settled. The best saints have need of the best helps they can get for the strengthening of their faith, and the arming of themselves against temptations to infidelity.” Let us turn to the Word and other Christians so that doubt does not fester into unbelief.

  • Have Mercy Devotional

    Jude 22–23

    Think of someone who may fall into any of the three categories listed in today’s study. What has your attitude been toward that person? Have you gone after them in order to help rescue them from perdition? When you have dealt with someone having doubts, have you been insensitive? Do you pray regularly for those who are denying the faith by word or deed? Take time to pray for wisdom, and then do what you can to help lead a sinner to repentance. View Resource

  • God is Greater Devotional

    1 John 3:19–20

    When it comes to our assurance (as well as everything else in life) we all must ask ourselves, “do I really trust God?” Trusting God is the first step towards assurance and drives us to do what John tells us Christians do. If we trust God we will affirm the incarnation, obey His commands, and love others. If you are having trouble trusting God, ask Him to renew your trust in Him. Make sure to seek out people in your life who will affirm His trustworthiness. View Resource
