  • Our Amen to the Glory of God Devotional

    2 Corinthians 1:20

    The Christian faith is simple enough for anyone to grasp and yet so rich that a lifetime of study will not exhaust our need to plumb the depths of our holy religion as it is revealed in sacred Scripture. As we seek to serve God, let us be ever aware of how much more we need to know about our Creator and His work so as to keep us from taking pride in our own knowledge. Let us also use our understanding of the faith to promote the gospel and worship our holy Lord in true humility. View Resource

  • Transformation into Glory Devotional

    2 Corinthians 3:7–18

    The glory that surrounds God is seen as beautiful colors, a wash of amazing sounds, a perfume of wonderful smells. That God adorns Himself with beauty is a sign to us. Do not settle for paltry architecture, advertising-jingle music, or weak pop culture in your life. Christians should be at the forefront of artistic development. View Resource

  • The Inspired Witness Devotional

    2 Corinthians 4:1–6

    We need the illumination of the Holy Spirit not only to make us see that the Bible is the Word of God but also to help us understand its teaching. As we study the Scripture, we need to do all we can to avail ourselves of the many fine tools for Bible study available today, but we also need to pray that the Spirit would help us receive and obey the teachings of His Word. Do you pray regularly for the Holy Spirit’s illumination? View Resource

  • The Kingdom Paradox Devotional

    2 Corinthians 4:7–15

    Jesus asked that the cup of suffering pass Him by. We are never to seek suffering. It is God who brings suffering upon us. When it comes, however, could it be that God is allowing us to take someone else’s pain, that they may have the strength to serve Him? Such a thought comforted Paul; it may comfort you as well.

  • The Eternal Weight of Glory Devotional

    2 Corinthians 4:17

    How much worth do you ascribe to the Lord? We are apt to spend a great deal of time thinking about and working for that which we value highly, so the amount of time we dedicate to thinking about God’s glory and talking to others about it can be an indicator of how worthy we find Him. Let us seek to give glory to God and to help others understand His infinite worth. View Resource

  • Genuine Conversion Devotional

    2 Corinthians 5:17

    The way to life is the way of death—death to sin and self. Only if we first die to sin can we be raised to new life and become new creatures in Christ. This happens decisively at conversion, but the Christian life is the process of dying every day to sin and seeking the life that is ours in Christ Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. If we have truly died to sin once in our conversion, we will seek daily to die to the sin that still remains in our lives. View Resource

  • Christ Alone Devotional

    2 Corinthians 5:21

    Mankind’s failure to meet the Lord’s standard of perfection is an essential part of the gospel message, and the covenant of works informs us of His standard. Jesus did not come to give us our best life now or to bring us wealth and health today. He came to earn a righteousness for us that would overcome death and make us worthy of the new heavens and earth. Make sure God’s unattainable standards and the answer of His grace are part of your gospel presentation. View Resource

  • The Righteousness of God Devotional

    2 Corinthians 5:21

    Even many professing Christians believe that they become citizens of heaven because they have lived a “good life.” The gospel tells us that no one but Christ has lived a life that is truly good. He alone deserves the kingdom of God, but our Father graciously allows us to share in Christ’s citizenship if we come to Him only through Christ, which means not by other teachers or even by our good works. If we trust in anything in addition to Jesus, we cannot be citizens of His kingdom. View Resource

  • The Severe Judgment of God Devotional

    2 Corinthians 5:21

    Ancient Jews who knew their Scriptures understood that Jesus’ crucifixion under the Romans meant that God was subjecting Him to the worst curse imaginable. But He was subjected to this curse because He bore the sin of those who trust in Him. If we trust in Jesus Christ, our sin has been paid for, and we need not fear the ultimate exile of hell. But those who never trust in Jesus will be exiled into hell and the eternal, just wrath of God. View Resource

  • The Prayer of Confession Devotional

    2 Corinthians 7:9–10

    The dividing line between contrition and attrition can be hard to discern. It is therefore vital that we know the holiness of God, because the better we know His holiness, the more we will be cognizant that the greatest offense in our sin is against the Lord Himself. When we confess our sin, let us be concerned first with how we have broken God’s holy law and have acted against His majestic character. View Resource
