    Galatians 4:12–14

    In our celebrity-oriented culture, it is easy to seek out pastors for their good looks, speaking styles, success in building large congregations, or other such factors. Scripture, however, commends for the pastorate those men who are faithful to the Word of God and exemplary in character and morals (1 Tim. 3:1–7). What are the characteristics you prize most in your pastor? Take time this week to thank your pastor for faithfully preaching and doing the Word. View Resource

  • The Unforgivable Sin Devotional

    Matthew 12:22–32

If a church confers membership on unrepentant individuals, those responsible are only adding to their punishment. View Resource
