• Unity of the Sanctified Devotional

    Hebrews 2:11–13

    The Bible tells us that Christ is at the same time both fully God and fully man. Though we cannot explain how this is so, it is unspeakably awesome that the Lord of the Universe did not think it beneath Himself to take on a human nature. In prayer, thank Jesus for sharing in our frailty that we might one day share in His glory. View Resource

  • Instruments for Good Devotional

    Romans 6:12-14

    Does your eye stray to sinful images? Does your tongue use unedifying language? Does your stomach drive you to consume too much? Think about the sins to which you are most prone and then identify the body parts that are responsible. How can those parts be used for righteousness? Ask God to help you use your members for Him.

  • Focus on the Facts Devotional

    Romans 6:11

    Our enemy the deceiver does not want us to know ourselves to be dead to sin and alive to God. He wants to persuade us to believe we are still under sin’s power and need to earn God’s favor. Thus, we must allow our minds to be renewed by God’s Word (Rom 12:1–2) lest we forget the facts. Make time for reminders from Scripture. View Resource

  • Newness of Life (Part 2) Devotional

    Romans 6:8-10

    In a sense, the Christian life is like the process of learning to ride a bicycle: You fall off a lot, but you have to get back on to learn. Yes, you will sin, but surrender is not an option. You must “press on,” asking God for grace to pass the next test. Remember that you have been set free to live to God. He Himself has made it possible for you. View Resource

  • Newness of Life (Part 1) Devotional

    Romans 6:5-7

    It is good for believers to take the measure of their progress in the Christian life. What were some of the sins that most troubled you before your conversion? Have you advanced in your ability to resist them? Remember that your “body of sin” has been rendered powerless and strive ever harder toward the righteousness of Christ. View Resource

  • Changed by Christ Devotional

    Romans 6:3-4

    Have you ever fallen into a period of sin and rebellion since your Christian life began? What happened? In all likelihood, your enjoyment of the sin swiftly waned, godly brothers called you to repentance, or the Holy Spirit convicted you. If you are a true believer, you cannot return to a life of sin. Praise God for that today. View Resource

  • Dead to Sin Devotional

    Romans 6:1-2

    At times, our growth as Christians seems painfully slow. Sin entices us; discouragement stymies us. We may be tempted to give up. But that is not an option. One who is truly born again simply cannot return to a life of complacent sinfulness—God will not let him. Look to Him for grace and press on toward the goal of Christlikeness. View Resource

  • Faith for Sanctification Devotional

    2 Peter 1:2-11

    We are to live our lives by faith in God. We are to let our roots grow deep into Him, trusting Him for all we need. We are to do all we can to grow in obedience, relying on Him for our growth. Are you doing these things? Search your heart for self-dependence and areas in which you fail to trust God. Repent and surrender them to Him. View Resource

  • The Source of Joy Devotional

    John 15:1–17

    How constant is your joy? Jesus tells us that if we want to know His joy, we must stay close to Him. Do you need more time in prayer and Bible study? Remember, many people do these things and do not abide in Christ, but trust their works instead. Commit to making those changes that are necessary for you to abide in Him. View Resource

  • The Practical Syllogism Devotional

    1 Timothy 1

    Take the one area in your life that you selected yesterday and apply the practical syllogism. Once again, look up passages that deal with this subject. Use these verses to write the first premise. Then prayerfully examine your own life. Write down the second premise and formulate a conclusion. What does the conclusion tell you? View Resource

  • Living in Christ’s Death Devotional

    Romans 5:1–5

    Have you been asleep to your sinfulness lately? In your prayers today, ask God to show you where the continuing cycle of sin and death is operating in your life. Then confess these things to Him, and appropriate His forgiveness and the power of new resurrection life in Jesus Christ. View Resource

  • Saved and Sanctified by Faith Devotional

    Galatians 3:1–14

    The wonderful blessings that come with new life in the Spirit are not earned. They are God’s gifts to enable us to live the Christian life. When we act as if we have to earn them, we are actually rejecting them because gifts by definition are not earned. Thank God for the gifts He gives you to give back to Him. View Resource

  • Willful Ignorance Devotional

    Romans 12:1-8

    The verse used for our study today, Romans 12:2, is Ligonier’s theme verse. Its truth drives our goals and objectives, shaping even the way in which these daily studies are written. Give new priority to the role your transformed mind must have in your pursuit of grace and holiness. View Resource
