• The Arts and the Worship Space Devotional

    2 Chronicles 5:1

    Some professing Christians neglect public worship, saying that they can worship God anywhere, even while sitting on the beach. While it is true that God can be worshiped anywhere, we are not to neglect the corporate worship of God’s people. No matter the kind of building your church worships in, do not neglect the weekly worship of God alongside your fellow believers. View Resource

  • A More Permanent Tabernacle Devotional

    2 Chronicles 7:11–22

    God has met us face-to-face in Jesus, and we can be assured that He will never leave the temple that He is building in His Son with us as living stones (1 Peter 2:1–11). Let us not take this truth for granted but draw near to Him in repentance and faith, asking Him to empower us for service. As we meet with others for worship, let us urge them to do the same that we might be a part of the holy temple that God is making His church to be. View Resource

  • Pride and Prayer Devotional

    2 Chronicles 26:16–23

    We are always to be humble servants of the Lord, coming before Him in prayer boldly (Heb. 10:19–22) not on account of what we have done but knowing that such access has been to granted to us in Christ alone. He looks with favor only upon those who are contrite and humble (Isa. 66:2), and if we are not humble before Him, we cannot rightly expect Him to hear or answer our prayers. Let us all cultivate humility in His presence. View Resource

  • Cleansing the Temple Devotional

    2 Chronicles 29

    Hezekiah’s sin offerings did not effect the cleansing the people needed, but we can still learn much from his zeal to restore true worship. The most important reformation that ever takes place in the life of the church is a reformation of her worship, because worship is the most important work we offer to God. May we always encourage our leaders to remain committed to Scripture as they order the worship services of our churches. View Resource

  • One Family in Israel Devotional

    2 Chronicles 33:1–20

    Because Jesus represents us before the Father, what can be said of Him can also be said of us. Jesus’ record is clear of sin and full of righteousness, and this is what the Father sees when He looks upon us in His heavenly courtroom. This is an essential truth of the gospel, and it assures us that we are free from the penalty of sin if we are in Christ and that we need not fear approaching the Lord with all of our hopes, fears, and needs.

  • Josiah’s Final Battle Devotional

    2 Chronicles 35:20-27

    Josiah was not a perfect man, but in the main he was obedient to the Lord. Therefore, he was regarded as a righteous king. As we live lives of faith and obedience, we can likewise be called righteous, even as we know that only the perfect righteousness of Christ, imputed to us by faith alone, gives us eternal life. If we belong to Christ, then we will want to be known as faithful servants of God, so let us strive to obey Him today and always. View Resource

  • God’’s Appeal to His People Devotional

    2 Chronicles 36:11-21

    Matthew Henry comments, “The methods God takes to reclaim sinners by his word, by ministers, by conscience, by providences, are all instances of his compassion towards them and his unwillingness that any should perish.” The Lord is quick to show compassion, and He does so in various ways. We often ignore this compassion or think we don’t deserve it. This should not be. Let us thank the Lord today for His compassion. View Resource

  • Restoration Fulfilled? Devotional

    2 Chronicles 36:22-23

    Even though the citizens of Judah returned to the Promised Land beginning around 538 BC, the restoration did not take place as God had foretold — on account of impenitence. Hundreds of years after the return, He sent His one and only Son to initiate the restoration of all things. Since that day, God has been working to renew creation, using His church to bring the gospel to bear on all of life and proclaim the coming of His kingdom. View Resource
