• The Devil Devotional

    Zechariah 3:1–5

    Do you struggle to find peace with God after you have sinned? If you are in Christ by faith, which is evident in your desire to repent of all your sin and turn continually to Him, then you can be confident that you are in the kingdom. Consequently, you can remind Satan that Jesus has taken care of everything that estranges you from the Lord and that God is eager and quick to show mercy and pardon you. View Resource

  • The Devil Devotional

    Zechariah 3:1–5

    Dr. R.C. Sproul defines true repentance in Essential Truths of the Christian Faith (pp. 193–194). Authentic repentance is sorrow for breaking God’s law, not only because we fear hell. It also involves a resolve to turn from sin and, where possible, the making of restitution, though never in an attempt to earn forgiveness. If all this is habitual in our lives, we can be assured that Satan’s accusations against us cannot stand. Of what do you need to repent this day? View Resource

  • The Devil Devotional

    Zechariah 3:1–5

    When we sin, both the Devil and the Holy Spirit come to us. The Devil accuses us in order to paralyze our growth. However, when the Spirit convicts us, He brings grace to restore us and to renew our fellowship with God. Go to the Lord in prayer, and ask Him to help you resist the paralysis that the accuser wants to create in you. View Resource

  • The Priest with Filthy Garments Devotional

    Zechariah 3:1-5

    Matthew Henry comments: “Christ loathed the filthiness of Joshua’s garments, yet did not put him away, but put them away. Thus God by his grace does with those whom he chooses to be priests to himself; he parts between them and their sins, and so prevents their sins parting between them and their God; he reconciles himself to the sinner, but not to the sin.” God accepts us not because we are deserving but because Christ is. This is our only hope in this world and the next. View Resource

  • God’s Servant, the Branch Devotional

    Zechariah 3:6-10

    Just as Solomon and Zerubbabel, sons of David, built God’s temple during the old covenant period, so does Jesus Christ, the final Son of David, build God’s temple today during the new covenant period. Unlike the temple of old, however, Christ does not build merely with human hands. As the God-man, He is the divine temple builder who is building His church into a holy temple, a clean sanctuary that will endure forever. Are you a part of this temple by faith alone? View Resource
