• Apostolic Authority Devotional

    1 Corinthians 7:10–16

    There is an unfortunate tendency to elevate the words of Jesus recorded in the Gospels and elsewhere as more authoritative than the words of the other biblical authors. But we must not do this, for Paul, Peter, and the other biblical authors were commissioned to give us the very words of God Himself. If you are tempted to view certain parts of the Bible as less authoritative than others, remember that all of its writers give us the words of God. View Resource

  • Holy Children Devotional

    1 Corinthians 7:14

    Presbyterians believe the church distinguishes believers’ children from unbelievers’ children through baptism (Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A 74). Whether or not you believe infants should be baptized, we can all agree that God expects more from those raised in a Christian home than those who do not grow up under the gospel. “To whom much was given … much will be required” (Luke 12:48). Let us remind our children of this and call them to repent and believe the gospel. View Resource

  • Called from Every Vocation Devotional

    1 Corinthians 7:17–24

    Some people work their whole lives in one vocation, while others experience a change of call during their lifetimes. The important thing to remember is that wherever we labor, we can labor for the glory of God and the good of our neighbors. If you are discontent in your vocation, ask the Lord to show you how your work can be used for His glory and the good of others. View Resource

  • Serving God in the Here and Now Devotional

    1 Corinthians 7:17–24

    If our primary concern in life is to change our present situation, then we will have little room to serve God wherever we are. It is not inherently wrong to seek a change in circumstances, and, indeed, a change may be what we are called to seek. But we are never to do so at the expense of serving God faithfully. Let us pray daily that the Lord’s will would be done and that we would seek this will so that we would be reckoned as His good and faithful servants. View Resource
