  • The Seriousness of Sin Devotional

    Matthew 18:7–9

    Dr. John MacArthur echoes Jesus’ somber warning in Matthew 5:29: “Sin must be dealt with drastically because of its deadly effects” (The MacArthur Bible Commentary, p. 1,131). Refraining from speaking privately with a certain person might be what keeps you from gossiping; throwing away your computer may be the right course of action if you struggle with looking at pornography. Whatever it takes, all of us must do what is needed to flee sin and temptation. View Resource

  • Trials of Various Kinds Devotional

    James 1:2-4

    Simply because faith is purified throughout life does not mean that our works contribute in any way to our justification. Rather, this teaching recognizes that we must continually strive to keep our faith in Christ alone. Many things come against us that tempt us to take our eyes off of Jesus and look for our hope in other places. If you are going through trials today, remember that God uses them to purify your faith and to lead you to trust in Him alone for deliverance. View Resource

  • The Offering of Isaac Devotional

    Hebrews 11:17–19

    God’s command that the Messiah must die (Isa. 53) seemed at first glance to be inconsistent with His promise that Messiah would rule the earth (Zech. 9:10). But now we see that both are perfectly consistent. We must resolve in our hearts to trust God even if His will may sometimes seem inconsistent to our limited understanding. View Resource

  • The Benefits of Trials Devotional

    James 1

    Have you ever been through a time of suffering that left you a milder, more sober, more “centered” person than before? What “bad” aspects of your life were refined and what good aspects of your life were strengthened? As hard as it may be, strive to thank God for the trials He sovereignly brings into your life.
