• Before the Face of God Devotional

    Psalm 24

    We can do nothing to merit eternal life, but it does not follow that we can do nothing to experience more of God’s favor once we have been ingrafted into the body of Christ through faith alone. Obedience to the Lord’s covenant stipulations can keep us from the harsher forms of His discipline and grant us many blessings that we might not otherwise enjoy when we are disobedient (Heb. 12). Therefore, we must seek to follow Him in all things. View Resource

  • The Fear of the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 1:1–7

    In our casual culture we must take care that we always have a reverent fear of the Lord. While Jesus has made us His friends (John 15:15), we need to remember that His friendship is like none other, for He is worthy of our worship and praise. Meditating on the holiness and grace of God can help us maintain a reverent fear of Him, and we should take care in our speech how we speak of Him. As we reverence Him, He will give us wisdom.

  • Grace Alone Devotional

    Ephesians 2:8-10

    Martin Luther says, “God has surely promised His grace to the humbled: that is, to those who mourn over and despair of themselves. But a man cannot be thoroughly humbled till he realizes that his salvation is utterly beyond his own powers, counsels, efforts, will and works, and depends absolutely on the will, counsel, pleasure and work of Another — God alone” (The Bondage of the Will, p. 100). Only those who have given up all self-reliance can be saved. View Resource

  • Seeking the Lost Devotional

    Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He commanded us to do likewise. What are you doing in response to that command? View Resource

  • God’s Desire to Save Devotional

    1 Timothy 2:3-4

    Part of our imitation of Christ includes a desire that all people come to salvation. Too often we lack this desire because we have not considered how terrible hell will be and have not remembered often enough that eternal punishment is the fate of all those who are apart from the true God. Let us pray daily that the Lord would give us a desire for everyone we know to be saved, even those people who can be considered our enemies. View Resource

  • Interpreting the Logos Devotional

    Reflect on this truth: God became flesh to accomplish your redemption. Have you accepted His gift of salvation? View Resource

  • Exercising Your Power of Choice Devotional

    God gave you a free will to choose. You choose according to your desires. Will your present desires lead to wise choices for the future? View Resource

  • Accepting Our Helper Devotional

    Rejoice in this fact: The Holy Spirit, the Helper promised by Jesus, stands ready to assist you today. View Resource

  • God’s Hyper-Plentiful Grace Devotional

    1 Timothy 1:12-14

    How often do we take the time to meditate upon and exalt the hyper-plentiful grace of our Lord? Because of His absolute perfection, God’s grace is by definition hyper-plentiful when He condescends to redeem imperfect people. Consider today some of the ways the grace of God has been evident in your life both in your conversion and in subsequent periods when you have been forgiven your sin. Take time to magnify our Father today for His mercy. View Resource

  • Regeneration Is Permanent Devotional

    Philippians 1:6

    The permanency of our regeneration is something we must not take for granted. Knowing that we have been born again should motivate us to live out this truth by heeding the many warnings in Scripture against unbelief (Heb. 6:1–12). If we do not heed these warnings and repent when necessary, we reveal that we are still slaves to sin and must question whether we have been born again in the first place (Rom. 6:1–2, 15–16). What sins do you need to repent over this day? View Resource

  • The Proto-Evangelium Devotional

    Genesis 3:14-15

    Two thousand years ago, the Lord Jesus Christ won the decisive victory over Satan through His death and resurrection. The devil is destined for eternal destruction, even though he now futilely assaults the people of God. While we must be aware of his threat, we must never fear him if we are in Christ. Moreover, the Lord calls us to fight against the devil through prayer and evangelism. Pray today for the defeat of Satan in the world and in the church. View Resource

  • Whoever Has the Son Devotional

    1 John 5:11–12

    Our sovereign God has chosen to grant eternal life only to those who will receive His Son. As Reformed evangelicals we are likely to have no problem affirming this teaching, but how many of us neglect sharing the Gospel with lost family, friends, and neighbors and thereby in practice deny that life comes only in His name? If you do not know any non-Christians, meet one and endeavor to share the Gospel with him. View Resource

  • Confession and the Spirit Devotional

    1 John 4:13–15

    Are you abiding in Christ? Do you maintain a strong confession of the biblical Jesus and so receive confirmation by the Spirit that you dwell in God and God dwells in you? Or do you hesitate to take a stand for Jesus when it is necessary to do so? Think of family, friends, or co-workers and then ask yourself if it is evident to them that your life and words belong to Jesus. Endeavor to confess Him truly before all of the people in your life.

  • Children of God Devotional

    1 John 3:1–3

    Are you frustrated with your current progression in holiness? Do you think that you will never overcome your persistent sins? If you hope in Christ, you should not feel this way. For if you truly hope in Him you are His child and are already becoming more like Him. In prayer, ask the Lord to remind you that you are His child and as such you can resist temptation. Thank Him for restoring you when you do fall, and hope on Him today so that you might live accordingly. View Resource

  • Baptism and Salvation Devotional

    1 Peter 3:21–22

    Noah’s curse on his son Ham (Gen. 9:20–25) shows us that not all who were saved by identifying themselves visibly with Noah actually had true faith. Today many outwardly profess Christ and have been baptized, but because they lack saving faith have not been united to Him. Only those who are truly in Jesus will be spared God’s eternal wrath. If you have never trusted Jesus, trust Him today. If He is your Lord, look to your baptism as a sign of your union with Him. View Resource
