• The Authority of the Bible Devotional

    Luke 7:1-10

    Bowing before the authority of Scripture is not some abstract, intellectual notion. As all ideas have consequences, the supreme consequence from this debate is the rise of the Protestant church. People of conviction must make serious choices. Ask yourself if you understand, and then stand under, the authority of Scripture. View Resource

  • The Standard of Truth Devotional

    Luke 7:1–10

    Biblical authority does not mean that there are not other authorities for the Christian. The concept of sola Scriptura simply means that the Bible is the final and unquestionable authority for the church and the individual in all matters of life. What is your view of biblical authority? Do you only speak of Scripture’s authority without letting it shape your life and faith? Endeavor to live out your confidence in biblical authority through obedience to the Bible’s commands.

  • Truth and It’s Standard Devotional

    Luke 7:1–10

    Church history testifies that the church is healthiest when it is committed unwaveringly to the final authority of Scripture for faith and practice. Moreover, we will please God only to the degree that we affirm biblical authority, for if we doubt its authority, we will doubt its truth and relevance to our lives. Let us pray that the Lord would develop in us and in our congregations a firm commitment to the truth of His Word. View Resource

  • Unable to Pay Devotional

    Luke 7:36–50

    Paul wrote that the Mosaic law served as a “captor” or “custodian” (NASB) until Christ came (Gal. 3:23), since one of its aims was to accentuate sin and drive people on toward faith in God for forgiveness. None of us can do enough good to make up for even the smallest sin, and it is easy even for those who affirm justification by faith alone to think they can repay their debt to God by themselves. Let us never think our own good deeds can cover over our bad ones. View Resource
