• The Apostolic Church Devotional

    Ephesians 2:19-20

    Because God Himself is truth (John 15:26), He prizes the truth of the gospel. The primary defining mark of a true church is that it is faithful to Apostolic doctrine. If we do not prize the Apostolic and prophetic teaching of the Old and New Testaments, our churches will cease to be Apostolic. Let us guard the faith once delivered to the saints and ordain only those men who will do the same. View Resource

  • The Holy Church Devotional

    Ephesians 5:25-27

    We should find it greatly comforting that God regards all those who trust in Christ alone as holy. No matter how slowly our sanctification—our growth in holiness—seems to be progressing, we know that the Lord is keeping His promise by His Spirit to conform us to Christ. When we sin, let us remember this great truth as we repent and mortify the flesh, and let us press on in our efforts to please Him with all that we are. View Resource

  • Athanasius Against the World Devotional

    John 15:18

    Standing for the truth of God’s Word is often costly, as we have seen in the cases of Justin Martyr and Athanasius. However, if we have counted the cost, we will be prepared to pay the price when and if it ever becomes necessary. We should pray regularly that we might stand for the truth of God even when it is difficult, and let us hold the things of this world loosely in order that we might never abandon our first love, Jesus Christ.

  • Defenders of the Faith Devotional

    1 Peter 3:15

    Irenaeus’ confrontation of the Gnostic heresy reminds us that Christianity is a public religion. God revealed Himself in Christ to many people and not just to a select few, and there is no secret oral tradition that has been handed down through the ages and is the possession only of select leaders. The New Testament gives us the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles, and whatever is not taught therein may not be used as a test of orthodoxy. View Resource

  • The Martyrdom of Polycarp Devotional

    Matthew 16:25

    Even as the Western world grows increasingly hostile to the Christian faith, we must still remember—and thank God for—the freedoms we enjoy. We do not yet risk our lives by confessing Christ, but that is not true for millions of Christians around the world. Still, we might risk our reputations and livelihoods for standing for the Lord. Are we prepared to pay this cost? Let us daily seek God in prayer, asking Him to strengthen us to stand for Jesus no matter the price we must pay. View Resource

  • Emulating the Supreme Model Devotional

    Thank God for role models who have influenced your life; then thank Him for the Supreme Model who died for you. View Resource

  • Apostles Devotional

    Ephesians 2:19–20

    The foundation of the church was laid 2000 years ago with Jesus as the cornerstone and His apostolic Word as the foundation. Today we are true to the foundation only as we apply the teachings of Scripture to the church and to our lives. Ask the Lord to help you do what you can to encourage the church to remain true to her foundation. View Resource
