Daily Devotions

A Rare Guest

Why these devotions?


As one pastor put it, "...the Gospel is a rare guest in men’s consciences, while the Law is their daily and familiar companion...". In other words, we are, on a daily basis, overwhelmed by what we must or should do. From sunrise to sunset, our days are filled with obligations and duties, punishments and (sometimes) rewards. 


The gospel, however, is something altogether unique. Neither a carrot nor a stick, the gospel is God's unilateral good news. These devotions are simply about promises and the life that flows from them. 


We hope these devotions can be a blessing to you, whatever your circumstance. To subscribe, simply fill out the form just to the right.

  • "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." 

    In this sinful world, we have become accustomed to being disappointed, sinned against, tricked, and hurt. To mitigate the wounds others inflict, we protect ourselves. We hold, at a distance, those who have hurt us. And cynicism provides for us a shelter from the pain and confusion we feel. 


  • Presents come with tags. Those tags tell us two pieces of information: from whom and to (or for) whom. 


  • How beautiful on the mountains 
               are the feet of those who bring good news, 
               who proclaim peace, 
               who bring good tidings, 
               who proclaim salvation, 
               who say to Zion, 
               “Your God reigns!”- Isaiah 52:7 

    Change one word, and it all falls apart. Imagine Isaiah writing this: "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good... advice." It really doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?
