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.

  • Increasingly, society is paying more attention to our food supply chains. Even if we aren't asking questions about ingredients and methods and sources, we still hear the answers: with or without antibiotics, local, responsibly sourced, etc. If we know the source, we know a little more about the food.  


  • The phrase is "count your blessings." When we talk about thankfulness, we're generally talking about taking stock of the blessings we currently enjoy. When we hear the encouragement to count our blessings, we are being told to take another look at our present circumstances and re-evaluate them, hoping that a fresh look will stoke some feelings of thankfulness. And often it does; praise the Lord!  


  • Is November 22nd too early? Thanksgiving is still a week away. If so, that's alright. "Joy to the World" was not, originally, a Christmas hymn. It was, in fact, a hymn sung during this time in the church year: end times.
