• The Church is Holy Devotional

    1 Corinthians 1:2

    Through the blood of Christ, God sees His church as holy, although He is by no means ignorant of the sin that persists in our lives. Yet this declaration of holiness gives us confidence that we can make real progress in our sanctification. Slowly and consistently, all true Christians are being conformed to the image of Christ. It is the joyful duty of all believers to seek the holiness of the church by endeavoring, with the Spirit’s help, to obey His commands. View Resource

  • The Infant Baptism Question Devotional

    1 Corinthians 1:10-17

    The issue of whether adults or children should be baptized is at once significant and emotionally charged. Because it is so emotionally charged we must speak gently. Because it is so significant we must study the matter carefully and diligently. Recommit to following the Word of God above the traditions of men. View Resource

  • By Christ Alone Devotional

    1 Corinthians 1:30

    Roman Catholic theology denies the sufficiency of Christ by regarding our works as something that adds to and makes possible a righteousness within ourselves. However, though personal holiness is important, it only demonstrates that we have been justified by faith alone because of Christ alone. It never makes us righteous enough in God’s eyes. In prayer, ask the Lord to make you daily despair of your ability to earn His favor and to enable you to trust in Christ alone. View Resource

  • Christ Our Righteousness Devotional

    1 Corinthians 1:30–31

    Jesus is the only human being who has ever had perfect faith in God. The faith the Lord demands from us is real faith, not perfect faith, and faith can be real even if it is imperfect. Still, we are never to be satisfied with imperfect faith but are to seek growth in our willingness to trust God over the course of our lives (2 Thess. 1:3). We can grow our faith through the study of Scripture, prayer, and the diligent use of God’s other means of grace. View Resource
