• Contend for the Faith Devotional

    Jude 3

    Take some time today to read through the epistle of Jude once more and at least one of the other General Epistles we have studied this past year. Ask the Lord to help you recall His apostles’ teaching as you go about your daily business, and pray you will not fall prey to false doctrine. Ask Him to help you love other believers more deeply and to motivate you to give generously of your time, effort, and resources for the propagation of the true Gospel. View Resource

  • Faith and Reason Devotional

    Proverbs 1:7

    Biblical faith is not believing in something without reason, it is believing the Lord because Scripture gives us every reason for trusting in Him. Faith is not antithetical to reason, for true rationality upholds an allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ. Take some time to consider how you would respond to the question: “Why are you a Christian?” Seek to be equipped to give reasons for the hope that is within you. View Resource

  • A Gentle Defense Devotional

    1 Peter 3:13–17

    Are you equipped to be a defender of the faith? Have you studied things such as the historical background of Scripture and the evidence for Christ’s resurrection so that you can answer the critics of our faith? As you answer, are you concerned with being gentle and respectful? Take some time today to review some of the evidences for the truth of the Christian faith. Afterwards, spend some time focusing on the gentleness of Christ and your need to imitate it in your defense. View Resource

  • In the Fullness of Time Devotional

    Galations 4:4–5

    College students are not the only ones who face attacks on the historicity of Scripture. Hollywood, the Internet, apologists for other religions, and so on bombard us with assaults on Scripture’s integrity. The Bible is the most vilified book on the planet, and yet its stories are regularly found to be historically reliable. Take time to find some resources on the historicity of Scripture so that you may be able to answer its critics (1 Peter 3:15–16). View Resource

  • Irenaeus of Lyons Devotional

    Ephesians 2:19–20

    Today’s passage is very important for our doctrine of Scripture. If the prophets and apostles are the foundation of the church, then their writings are the final court of appeal for belief and practice. We should also not expect new revelation from God because once the foundation is laid there is no need to build it again. How do you evaluate your thoughts and beliefs? God’s Word alone can determine what we believe about Him. View Resource

  • Marcion’s Challenge Devotional

    1 Corinthians 10:1–6

    Most professing Christians today would not think of altering the biblical text, but there is a widespread, often unspoken belief that the God of the Old Testament became nicer in the New Testament. But the God revealed in both testaments is the same holy and merciful Creator, and we must not think that God somehow changed His character and demands once He sent Christ. God is no more and no less loving or holy today than He was before Jesus came. View Resource
