• The General Epistles Devotional

    James 1:27

    Take some time to read through the book of James before we begin our studies tomorrow. As you read, meditate on a few of the verses, and pray that the Holy Spirit would begin to open your mind and heart so that you may rightly apply to your life the teaching of this book. Ask the Lord to show you how to be one who, by faith, lives out the Word of God. Pray that He would make you willing and able to do so. View Resource

  • Who Were the Galatians? Devotional

    Galatians 1:1–10

    Christian scholars continue to debate the topic of today’s lesson. While such an exercise might be valuable, we must be careful to insure that the issue of the book’s original audience does not obscure its meaning to us, its current audience. As we study Galatians, make your goal the discovery of the book’s message for you. View Resource

    James 5:13–20

    Think of ways that God, through this study of James, has been challenging you in the areas of testing, wealth and generosity, and wisdom and speech.

  • 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
