• Seeking the Lost Devotional

    Luke 15

    How much do you know about the spiritual needs of your city? Where is the closest neighborhood to yours that has been given over to drug lords and other criminals because the hope of Christ is so absent? Where are those affluent areas in which people attempt to find purpose in their possessions because they do not know the One who makes life meaningful? Work with your pastor and elders to find unbelievers and then go and do what you can to bring the Gospel to them View Resource

  • Embracing the Penitent Devotional

    Luke 15:11–31

    Although not everyone who has been subjected to church discipline repents, there are many times when a disciplined sinner is humbled by the church’s treatment and, forsaking sin, returns to the fold. When this happens, church leaders and laypeople must be prepared to receive that person as a co-heir in Christ and not gossip or otherwise mistreat the offender. The church must be the place where repentant people feel the most welcome (2 Cor. 2:5–11). View Resource

  • The Parable of the Prodigal Son Devotional

    Luke 15:11–32

    If we are not careful, we may adopt a holier-than-thou attitude just like the one that the Prodigal Son’s brother possessed. We dare not close the doors of our churches to the most notorious sinners. If they have repented and turned to Christ, we must likewise embrace them. If we do not, then we likely have not understood our own unworthiness and the lavish gift of grace God has given to us. View Resource
