• Adonai Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Humanity’s most basic sin is the desire to throw off the Lord’s external authority and become a law unto ourselves. Even we who have been transformed by His grace must likewise war against this desire, which often manifests itself in an attempt to get around His commandments or excuse behaviors and attitudes that are inexcusable. Let us endeavor daily, with the Spirit’s help, to mortify the lawlessness that is trying to overtake us. View Resource

  • Adonai Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Our greatest temptation as Christians is to live as if Jesus is not the Lord of our lives. When the culture sets the agenda for our worship and ethics, it has become our lord. If we do not confess Christ in the face of hostility at home or in the workplace, we have walked away from the authority of God. It is therefore incumbent upon us to do all we can to recognize Jesus’ authority over everything. Take time to consider the fact that Christ is Lord over all. View Resource

  • The Sovereign Glory of God Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Because God is glorious, He is sovereign over all things. Because God is sovereign over all things, He is glorious. We cannot separate these attributes of His character, and one of the reasons that we emphasize the complete sovereignty of God over every detail of creation is because we want to emphasize His glory. God is most glorified by us when we ascribe to Him full control over all things, even our salvation. View Resource

  • The Supreme Paradox Devotional

    Psalm 8

    John Calvin aptly noted that we cannot really understand the nature of God without understanding the nature of His image-bearers and vice versa. The more accurate a view we have of ourselves and the way in which sin affects us, the more we will know God’s glory. The more we know God’s glory, the more we know the depth our sin and finitude. Take some time to consider how the culture’s definition of man impacts your view of yourself and of the Lord. View Resource
