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.

  • In 70 AD, the second temple in Jerusalem was destroyed (the first one fell to the Babylonians hundreds of years earlier). The Roman emperor Vespasian dispatched his son Titus take care of another Jewish revolt. Titus laid siege to Jerusalem, and in 70 AD, Jerusalem fell. The historian Josephus estimates over a million people died. He also records, in stunning detail, the chaos and the carnage of the event.   

  • The trouble in getting from A to B is what lies in between. "A" is okay. That's where we are. We're hanging on—at least for the moment. And "B" promises to be better, safer, calmer, and happier (especially considering heaven).

  • Just because it's fixed doesn't mean it's like new. We can replace parts, mitigate damage, or come up with a temporary fix, but it doesn't mean it's "good as new." In fact, sometimes the more time we spend fixing something, the more we realize how broken it really is.
