• A Priest from Judah Devotional

    Hebrews 7:13–14

    We serve Christ as the sovereign King seated at the right hand of the Father. But this sovereign King also serves as High Priest, interceding on our behalf. The kings of this world would never express such concerns for their subjects. Worship Christ as both a mighty, sovereign King and a loving, merciful High Priest. View Resource

  • Seventy Years of Exile Devotional

    Jeremiah 25

    John Calvin also writes on this passage that “there is a great difference between these and God’s servants, who, when anything is commanded them, seek to render that obedience which they ought—all such are faithful servants.” Although all people, in some way, serve the Lord’s sovereign will, only those who do so because they love God will be rewarded. Let us pray that we will always be those who follow the Lord willingly and eagerly. View Resource

  • Trouble in Egypt Devotional

    Jeremiah 44

    Matthew Henry comments on today’s passage: “God can find his people, with the visits of his grace, wherever they are; and, when his ministers are bound, yet the word of the Lord is not bound. The spirit of prophecy was not confined to the land of Israel.” The Lord acted in grace to continue speaking to his sinful people in Egypt, just as He continues to speak to us in Scripture when we have sinned. Yet that must not make us complacent, for we too will be disciplined if we do not heed His voice. View Resource

  • Wicked Sons of Judah Devotional

    Genesis 38:1–11

    Paul tells us that anyone who fails to provide for his family has denied the faith and is “worse than an unbeliever” (1 Tim. 5:8). Onan was killed when he would not give a son to Er or a provider for Tamar, and so we must not take a failure to provide for our families lightly. Note that provision is much more than just food and shelter. God will also reckon with us if we fail to spend quality time with spouses and children or do not point them to Christ (1 Sam. 3:10–14).

  • The Word of the Lord through Micah Devotional

    Micah 1

    Scripture is clear that all sin begins with false worship (Rom. 1:18–32). Therefore, recognizing the idols and false worship behind our other sins advances our sanctification. At root, all sin manifests a desire to get what we want apart from the God who is, leading us to create all manner of idols that promise but can never satisfy. Moreover, those who persist in impenitent idolatry will feel the Lord’s wrath. Let us reject all idols and pursue ultimate satisfaction in Christ alone. View Resource
