• Opposing the Lord’s Annointed Devotional

    Psalm 2:1–6

    The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that Christ executes the office of king by “subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies” (Q&A 26). All who oppose this work do so in vain. He will conquer the hearts of His elect, drawing them all to Himself. He will defeat His enemies and ours. He is the mighty King and Lord of all, and we need not fear anything if we are in Him.

  • Joy in the Present Devotional

    Ecclesiastes 2:24–26

    Often we experience suffering when we have faithfully served the Lord, while other faithful servants experience prosperity. When this happens, it is easy to wallow in dissatisfaction. We are also tempted to try to find the reasons why our situation is different than another’s. The answer, however, is to seek the Lord’s face and ask Him to give us contentment and satisfaction with whatever blessings we do have, whether they are large or small.

  • Our All-Seeing Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 15:3

    Matthew Henry comments that God has “an eye to discern all, not only from which nothing can be concealed, but by which every thing is actually inspected, and nothing overlooked or looked slightly upon… . An eye to distinguish both persons and actions. He beholds the evil and the good, is displeased with the evil and approves of the good, and will judge men according to the sight of his eyes.” God sees all that we do, and He will not forget those who obey Him.

  • Our Wisdom and God’s Devotional

    Proverbs 21:30–31

    God’s wisdom has the final say in all matters. No plan, no matter how well conceived or potent, can keep Him from accomplishing His purposes. His enemies can advance only as far as He allows, and what might look like victories on their part are ordained by the Lord as part of His plan to defeat them fully and finally. If we are in Christ, the undefeatable Lord is on our side. In that we can and must rejoice, for it means that our enemies cannot finally prevail. View Resource

  • God’s Wisdom in the Gospel Devotional

    Romans 16:27

    Take some time today to reflect on the gospel—the message that Christ lived and died to cover your sins with His righteousness, cleanse you from sin by His blood, and give you peace with God. By faith alone in Christ alone, apart from any good works you might do, you enjoy the benefits of what Jesus has done. This is the gospel of grace, our only hope in life and death, and it reveals the sovereign majesty, holiness, and mercy of the Lord. View Resource

  • Paul’s Concluding Doxology Devotional

    Romans 16:25–26

    Note that in today’s passage, those whom the preaching of Jesus Christ will strengthen are the Roman Christians—men and women who are already believers. God not only brings His people to faith through the preaching of the gospel, but He also strengthens them in their faith through the continual preaching and application of the gospel. Attending to the preached Word of God should be one of the primary goals in our lives, for that is how the Lord matures us. View Resource

  • Honoring the Saints Devotional

    Colossians 2:18–19

    One of the most significant achievements of the Protestant Reformation was the recovery of the biblical truth that Christ is the sole Mediator between God and man. When this truth is proclaimed, we have confidence to approach the Lord with humility, to see Him as our Father who loves us and wants us to come to Him with all of our needs, no matter how insignificant we think they happen to be.

  • The God of Peace Devotional

    Romans 15:33

    Many well-meaning people seek world peace, but as Christians, we know that this will not be possible until all the world is at peace with God. The only way to bring about lasting peace between people and nations is to proclaim the gospel. As this happens, the elect will repent and believe in Jesus, and once at peace with God in Christ, they will begin to seek peace where they are. Let us pray for peace and preach the gospel so as to be instruments of God’s peace. View Resource

  • The Judgment of God in Christ Devotional

    Romans 14:10–12

    If we are in Christ Jesus by faith alone, the sin of judgmentalism will not keep us out of the kingdom. We will find ourselves repenting for this transgression, and the blood of our Savior will cover us where we fall short. Still, we must remember that God’s weighing of our hearts will determine the rewards we receive in heaven. We are granted heaven by grace alone through faith alone, but a judgmental spirit will reduce the blessings we will receive once we are actually there. View Resource

  • Stop Stealing Devotional

    Exodus 20:15

    Our primary motivation to give to the Lord’s work should not be to get something in return. Nor does God promise a specific one-to-one correlation between our tithing and the blessings He will give. Nevertheless, our Creator graciously pledges to bless us tremendously when we faithfully support His work. Let us purpose anew to fulfill our responsibility and give to those churches and institutions that are carrying out the Lord’s mission on earth. View Resource

  • The Sum of God’s Commandments Devotional

    Romans 13:8–9

    As disciples of Christ, we must define love by what the Lord has revealed and not by what happens to feel right to us at the moment. Our hearts can deceive us, but God’s Word teaches us only the truth. As we consider our love for others, a desire to act in conformity to the commands of the Lord will show us that what we are experiencing is the godly kind of love that the Lord demands. Is such love evident in your heart? View Resource
