• Impurity Condemned Devotional

    Ephesians 5:3-5

    The antidote to covetousness and the sexual immorality it inspires is thanksgiving (Eph. 5:4). When we recognize how greatly the Lord has blessed us and how we do not deserve God’s favor, we are more likely to be content with what our Creator has given us. In turn, contentment kills our natural inclination to think that we do not have enough and that we deserve what God has given to others. Thank the Lord for your blessings this day. View Resource

  • The Lord Knows How Devotional

    2 Peter 2:9–10a

    That God keeps the unrighteous under punishment by turning them over to their sin should be a sober warning to us. While those of us with true faith will never lose our salvation, if we persist in disobedience, we may become more entangled in sin, making it more difficult for us to grow in our love for righteousness. Think of a persistent sin that you have trouble overcoming and find a friend who can stand with you as you fight against it. View Resource

  • Blasphemous Judgments Devotional

    Jude 8–10

    Christians today often substitute other authorities for the authority of the Bible. Many in the Pentecostal movement base their doctrines more on visionary experiences than on the Word of God. Even among Reformed believers, there can be a tendency to spend more time studying systematic theology than Scripture. Make a plan to allow for the devotion of your time and effort to the study of God’s Word. View Resource

  • Gain from Wrongdoing Devotional

    2 Peter 2:15–16

    Even a broken clock is correct twice a day, or so the saying goes. False teaching is particularly dangerous because rarely will false teachers speak no truth at all. That truth is spoken on occasion, however, does not make one approved by God, for even the vilest of sinners have the capability to know and teach true things because they bear the image of the One who is Truth. Remember to take into account the motivations of your teachers as well as the words they speak. View Resource

  • Full of Adultery Devotional

    2 Peter 2:14

    Most of us would readily leave a church in which a leader is promoting a view of sexuality not in line with Scripture. However, though today’s passage is primarily a warning about false teachers, we should all likewise beware lest our own eyes be found to be full of adultery. Unfortunately, the increasing sexualization of everything in our culture can affect us. If you struggle with sexual sin, find accountability and pray that your eyes and thoughts would be pure.

  • Not Like Esau Devotional

    Hebrews 12:16

    Sanctification is a process. We do not become holy all at once, but we manifest righteousness slowly and imperfectly. When the Spirit is at work in us, we begin to become more and more sorrowful over our sin and more and more eager to repent. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you into repentance for sin and to help you walk in holiness. View Resource
