• Living in the Light of Day Devotional

    Romans 13:12-14

    Jerome, one of the most important biblical scholars of the ancient church, comments on today’s passage that we are to “live our lives in the same way now as we are going to live in the day, that is, in the future world.” Our lives should not mirror those who have no hope and are trapped in the darkness; rather, we are to live as citizens of the kingdom to which we belong, the kingdom of light for which the Lord is preparing us by His Holy Spirit.

  • Salvation Draws Near Devotional

    Romans 13:11

    God always finishes the work that He starts, and if we are in Christ now, our future glorification is assured. This helps us put our confidence in the right place. Because the Lord has us in His hand, we can trust that He will work out all His purposes for us. When we grow discouraged with the lack of holiness in our lives, we must remember that God is working in us, that He will finish what He started, and that if we seek His face, we will enjoy all the benefits of His redemption.

  • Our Longing for Bodily Redemption Devotional

    Romans 8:23-25

    Christians have a deep, persistent longing to be completely free from our fallen condition. Sometimes we do not feel very patient in waiting for freedom from the presence of sin, but the surety of its coming should cause us to experience more and more patience as we await the full and final outworking of God’s purposes. Since we know that we will be glorified, we can endure all of our shortcomings in the present, repenting over them as we look forward to what is to come. View Resource
