• The Nations Cling to the Jews Devotional

    Zechariah 8:16-23

    Only Christ can keep God’s covenant perfectly, which is why His righteousness is the only thing that avails for our justification, for being declared righteous in God’s sight. Having justified us, the Lord expects obedience out of gratitude for His grace, and as our lives reflect a pattern of holiness and obedience, more and more people see our witness and are attracted to the Christian faith. Are you being a good witness to your unbelieving neighbors by what you say and do? View Resource

  • The New Covenant Devotional

    Jeremiah 31:31–40

    John Calvin writes, “God speaks to us now openly, as it were face to face, and not under a veil, as Paul teaches us, when speaking of Moses, who put on a veil when he went forth to address the people in God’s name… . Under the Gospel … the veil is removed, and God in the face of Christ presents himself to be seen by us.” Both covenants teach the same thing—the Lord saves us by grace alone. But the new covenant shows God’s love in a way not seen under the old covenant. View Resource

  • Jerusalem Receives the Nations Devotional

    Isaiah 60:10-14

    The incredible contribution of Gentiles to the building and restoration of the church of God demonstrates the accuracy of Isaiah’s passage. Since the first coming of Christ, Gentiles have been streaming into the Lord’s Holy City, using their gifts and talents to edify God’s people, systematize doctrine, and perform loving service to both church and world. As we use our gifts in the body of Christ, Isaiah’s prophecy continues to come true. View Resource

  • Freedom in Christ Devotional

    Galatians 5:1

    It can be easy to forget the freedom we have in Christ and let our fear that we will never serve God as precisely as He desires keep us from serving other people. We are covered with Christ’s blood and must not let such fears paralyze us. By the Spirit we can attempt great things for the Lord with the knowledge that our failures cannot destroy the kingdom and that God has provided for our forgiveness and will restore us as we turn to Him.

  • Wine for Fresh Wineskins Devotional

    Matthew 9:14–17

    Many of Jesus’ contemporaries were unwilling to accept the change God was bringing to His covenant with them, and they rejected Him. Though the essence of God’s covenant of grace is the same for those who live on either side of the coming of Christ, the outward forms, rites, and customs have undergone a significant transformation. Rejoice that we live under the new covenant and have greater knowledge of Jesus as well as a fuller experience of the Spirit. View Resource
