• Phoebe’s Commendation Devotional

    Romans 16:1-2

    When others serve faithfully, it is appropriate to recognize them for what they have done. In the case of Phoebe, this meant that it was right for the church at Rome to receive her with open arms and to provide for her needs. In our day, this means showing hospitality to our brothers and sisters in Christ—especially if they have served faithfully. We might also recognize and encourage a brother or sister for a job well done in a more public way, if it’s appropriate. View Resource

  • Tychicus to Ephesus Devotional

    Ephesians 6:21–22

    As Christians, we are called not just to be hearers of the Word but doers as well (James 1:22). We fail at this; before we die, we never live in a manner wholly consistent with what we know and say is right. Yet by the grace of God and empowering of the Holy Spirit, our lives become more consistent with our speech over time, just like Paul. Let us strive to live consistently and be quick to repent when others point out our inconsistencies. View Resource

  • Hope and Encouragement Devotional

    Romans 15:1–6

Let’s get the psalms back into our worship and our private devotions. View Resource
