• Unworthy at the Table Devotional

    2 Samuel 9

    God truly loves His people, but there is nothing in us that makes us worthy of such love. He saves us on account of His promises to Christ and His love for Him. What a marvelous blessing! Because He loves us in Christ, we are assured that God will love us forever, never allowing anyone, even ourselves, to take us from His mighty hand. Let us be grateful that redemption, which we do not deserve, is ours truly in Christ. View Resource

  • David’s Great Friendship Devotional

    1 Samuel 20

    As the people of God, we must be especially careful never to show loyalty to the wrong people and we must be worthy of the trust of our friends and family. This can be easier said than done at times, but the Holy Spirit is with us to help us maintain our loyalty even when doing so is difficult. Let us repent of any disloyalty we have shown and work to make it up to someone we have betrayed. And may we always keep our vows to the Lord Himself. View Resource

  • Saul “Troubles the Land” Devotional

    1 Samuel 14:24-30

    Saul was something of a Pharisee—he required more from his men than God did. We, of course, are prone to the same sort of behavior, dreaming up guidelines for ourselves and others that God never lays upon us. Beware of commands that have no basis in God’s Word. And strive not to bind others’ consciences beyond Scripture. View Resource

  • The Faith of Jonathan Devotional

    1 Samuel 14:1–15

    In his faith, courage, and willingness to wait on God, Jonathan compares favorably to Saul. In human terms, it is a tragedy that Saul’s sin prevents Jonathan from coming to Israel’s throne. But Jonathan accepts God’s judgment and later befriends David. May we be as willing to acquiesce to God’s will, even when it seems to “cost” us. View Resource
