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.

  • How do you use the word blessed? Often, we hear it used as a modest way of speaking about the stuff we have. 
     


  • A high-stress job, an inhospitable environment, and people around him that just didn't get him. It all wore him down, down to the nerve. Eventually, he snapped, "Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?" Moses struck the rock, and water flowed out.  
     


  • That's what the flight attendants say. “If you are traveling with a child or someone who requires assistance, secure your mask on first, and then assist the other person.”

    It seems counter-intuitive. Wouldn't it be more noble or selfless to help others first? The problem is, we have limitations. If we want to help others, we need to breathe.
