Blessings That Won’t Be Restricted: Adopted By God

James Burstow | February 1st 2021

Our second blessing is adoption: the truth that not only were we chosen before the dawn of time, but we were chosen to be children of God. We could have been made only friends of God—and that would have been great. We would have been more than happy. But the Lord wanted more for us. He wanted us to be his children. He wanted to be our Father. And that is far, far better in so many ways. Here are four!... continue reading

Sample Devotion: Surpassing Knowledge

Tim Chester | January 28th 2021

We will never bottom out Christ’s boundless love. But we need to see more and more of his love. Every time we sin, we need to appreciate afresh this love that welcomes sinners. Every time we suffer, we need to appreciate afresh this love that mysteriously works all things for our good. Every time we face temptation, we need to appreciate afresh this love that captures our hearts.... continue reading

Blessings That Won’t Be Restricted: Being Chosen in Christ

James Burstow | January 25th 2021

As some of our physical blessings are stripped away, let's encourage each other with the reality of this incredible spiritual blessing in the days that lie ahead of us, whatever they may hold.  We are who we are in Christ because before the dawn of time, God chose us and set his affection on us. Which means we are incredibly special; we are part of an eternal story; and our future is absolutely secure.... continue reading

How Voices from the Past Can Encourage Us Today

Tim Chester | January 25th 2021

To help fix our gaze on Jesus, we are surrounded by “a great cloud of witnesses”. For the first readers of Hebrews, these witnesses were the saints of the Old Testament, whose faith in God’s promises had sustained them through troubling times and had enabled them to achieve great things in God’s name. But as readers today, we can add names from across the pages of church history to that crowd of cheering spectators.... continue reading

When the Future’s on Hold

Katy Morgan | January 21st 2021

I never noticed before this year how much we shape our lives around plans for the future. We’re always aiming at something: a new job, a new relationship, a big trip abroad, a house extension. So many of those things are gone now. It’s just covid, covid, covid: the ebb and flow of restrictions, the wave upon wave of uncertainty. In many ways it feels like the future is on hold.... continue reading

Sex. A Holy Discipline

Adrian and Celia Reynolds | January 19th 2021

Indeed, you might think that such a sentence is bordering on blasphemy, or at the very least, it’s pushing the boundaries a little. But that kind of response reveals precisely the problem that many Christians have about sex. Married believers know sex is enjoyable, fun, intimate, delightful: but they can’t quite bring themselves to include it in a list of holy disciplines.... continue reading

5 Reasons to Take Your Kids to Old Testament Stories

Carl Laferton | January 14th 2021

Fires on mountains. Warriors and battles. Lions not eating people and bears actually eating people. Queens and slave-girls speaking truth to power. The kids’ fiction shelves of your local bookstore (if it’s open) contain no stories more exciting than Old Testament narratives offer. Of course, these are not “just stories”—they’re true, they are part of the great overarching story of salvation, and they display God’s character—but they are also stories, and exciting ones.... continue reading

7 Things to Keep in Mind When Kids Ask Questions about Faith

Carl Laferton | January 12th 2021

In an ideal world, I would be really-good-dad-Carl who answers his kids’ questions about Christian faith with seven things in mind. In the real world, I’m flawed-but-trying-Carl and I score about 2 out of 7 most times I answer my kids’ questions about faith. That’s ok, because if my children (and yours) are to be saved, it will be by the grace of God through the work of his Spirit, not by the godliness of their parents through the brilliance of their answers.... continue reading
