• Bishop of Our Souls Devotional

    1 Peter 2:25

    Dr. R.C. Sproul says that you can summarize the Bible thusly: God, who by His mighty power and wisdom sustains the universe in all its complexities, nevertheless has His eye on each and every one of His people, so intent is He on their welfare. Even when human shepherds and elders fail us, Christ is leading us through the valley, keeping us safe that we might see Him one day in glory (Ps. 23). Let us be comforted by this fact no matter what is happening in our lives. View Resource

  • The Glory of God Devotional

    James 2:1

    It is hard for us to understand exactly what God’s glory may look like, but the various descriptions of it in Scripture seem to indicate that it will be the most beautiful sight we will ever experience. All of the goodness and beauty we see in the present will be nothing in comparison to the refulgent glory of God. As we think on the Lord’s glory, let us be concerned to reflect His beauty and goodness in all that we do and say. View Resource

  • The Christ Devotional

    Luke 9:18–20

    Of all the titles given to Jesus in Scripture, Christ may be the one with the richest meaning since it incorporates the three offices of prophet, priest, and king and everything that is connected to them. We who are suffering the effects of the fall need someone to reveal God to us, to intercede for us, and to lead us in the way we should go. Let us be thankful that the Father did not neglect these needs but has sent the Christ for our sake. View Resource

  • He Who Comes in Clouds Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    We may not often use the title Son of Man when we refer to Jesus, but we must never forget the reality behind it. Jesus alone is the King of kings and Lord of lords. It is His will that stands supreme and must be obeyed even if it conflicts with lesser authorities. It is Him in whom we hope, not the kingdoms of men. When we look at the world around us we should be comforted that our Savior rules over all and that we are a part of His never-ending kingdom. View Resource

  • The Son of Man Devotional

    Mark 9:30–32

    Though we heed His teaching in the Gospels, we can forget that Jesus is a prophet. In fact, He is the prophet, par excellence. As the Word of God (John 1:1), He speaks, by the Spirit, throughout Scripture. Some people believe that Jesus has nothing to say about topics never mentioned in the Gospels, even if they are discussed in other biblical books. But all the doctrines of the Bible are the doctrines of Jesus, even if they are not directly recorded in the Gospels. View Resource

  • Overseer Devotional

    1 Peter 2:25

    As the Overseer of our souls, Jesus keeps guard over us so that we will persevere in faith and inherit all the promises He has given to us. Even though Scripture constantly reminds us to persevere in the faith, we can rest assured that Jesus Christ will preserve all those the Father has given Him. View Resource

  • Servant of the Lord II Devotional

    Isaiah 53:4–11

    The atonement of Christ has healed us spiritually and physically. Even though many of us suffer from various ailments, the Servant of the Lord, Jesus Christ has secured our complete health in His perfect sacrifice. As we anticipate the return of Christ, we should rejoice in the truth that God will heal us completely. View Resource

  • Servant of the Lord I Devotional

    Isaiah 53:1–3

    We see from today’s passage that we should not be surprised when people reject the Messiah. We have been told ahead of time that people will do so. But we also know that some reject Jesus at first but later confess Him as Savior. If you know someone that has rejected Christ, consider how you might continue being His witness to them. View Resource

  • Prophet Devotional

    Deuteronomy 18:15

    Jesus comes into the world as the covenant prosecutor par excellence. His exposition of the Law (Matt. 5–7) makes clear the extent to which we have violated the terms of the covenant. But this Prophet not only predicted judgment, He also took our judgment upon Himself. Rejoice that the One who tells us of our sin also saves us from it. View Resource

  • Savior Devotional

    Luke 2:11

    Too many people today think that God is not terribly concerned with sin and does not really get angry with His creation. But the book of Romans makes it clear that God’s wrath will be poured out upon unrepentant sinners. However, Jesus has borne this wrath in our place, and you are saved from it if you trust Him alone.

  • Logos Devotional

    John 1:1–18

    Eastern religions point to a god who is a nebulous force or impersonal substance. However, the Bible tells us that God is a personal God who gives meaning and purpose to all things. Pray that you would not let our culture’s infatuation with Eastern religions make you forget that we serve a personal God. View Resource

  • Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    Enemies of the faith say that Jesus never claimed a special heavenly status or kingship for Himself. But, as we have seen, when Jesus calls Himself “Son of Man,” He is claiming to be sovereign over all things. Pray for those who will not submit to Christ’s rule that they may see that they owe obedience toward the King of kings. View Resource

  • Lord Devotional

    Philippians 2:5–11

    The early Christians endured martyrdom before confessing, “Caesar is lord.” They knew that Jesus alone was divine, and they were unwilling to allow anyone to usurp His status. Our modern culture offers many competing lords for worship. Pray that you would stand like the early Christians and confess that Jesus Christ alone is Lord. View Resource

  • The Christ Devotional

    Mark 8:29

    The word christ corresponds to the Hebrew word messiah, which also means “anointed one.” Although these are comon words in Scripture, they are most fully expresed in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is “the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power” (Heb. 1:3). View Resource
