A Devotion for the First Week of Lent

Tim Chester | Jan. 30, 2024

At the transfiguration, the disciples see the glory of God before their very eyes. Mark specifically says Jesus “was transfigured before them” (Mark 9:2). The phrase “before them” suggests that this event was for the benefit of the disciples. Elijah and Moses are also said to have “appeared before them” (Mark 9:4).... continue reading

Are Our Worship Songs Too Happy?

Clint Watkins | Jan. 18, 2024

It’s unfortunately common to hear that church is one of the hardest places to be in the midst of hardship. Maybe you have limped into church, weighed down by things like sadness, fear, or disappointment. Yet the place you hoped to find healing and refuge left you feeling hurt and alone. As the body of Christ joined together in praise, you felt dislocated in your pain.... continue reading

When Spiritual Platitudes Aren’t Enough

Clint Watkins | Jan. 16, 2024

My wife and I learned halfway through our first pregnancy that our son was not going to survive. A medical condition which we had never heard of introduced an agony we had never known. The doctors told us that our son would continue growing in the womb but would not live after delivery. Jillian would endure the discomfort of pregnancy and the excruciating pain of labor. But we would not come home with our son, Eli.... continue reading

Encouraging Your Church Family to Serve

Steve Robinson | Jan. 11, 2024

Just before Christmas last year I saw a lovely video clip of a young boy sharing with his mom that he had been given the part of “the third door holder" in a Christmas nativity play. The little boy was overjoyed with the role that he had been given to the point that he called it a classic nativity part and celebrated like he had scored a goal.... continue reading

How Can I Pray When I'm In Pain?

Courtney Reissig | Dec. 28, 2023

The psalms are meant for God’s people as much as they were meant for the authors who wrote them. They are meant to encourage, strengthen, instruct, and empathize in the myriad trials, joys, pain, and praise that we experience. So, in Psalm 6 we have just that—a universal psalm for the universal church.

God’s Grace for the New Year

Linda Green | Dec. 26, 2023

A New Year is upon us and, for many, it’s a time to make some resolutions. While often these include things such as losing weight or exercising more, many of us recognize our need to be more consistent in Bible meditation, in exercising greater patience with our children, or in volunteering more at church or school. In other words, we set goals to help us accomplish things we know we haven’t been doing very well. While this exercise can help us reflect on ways we might grow in loving God and others, we must beware of focusing on all the things we “should” be doing, while failing to remember all that Christ has done on our behalf. The emphasis then becomes about what I need to do, (in my own strength and wisdom), rather than gratefully acknowledging the gospel grace that is ours through our Savior Jesus Christ.... continue reading
