Recent Devotionals

Ephesians – Chosen

Read Ephesians 1:3-8

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)

Every single day I need to be reminded of who I am in Christ. I am God’s precious chosen creation. And even though I have strayed from God’s holy way, He has redeemed me by the blood of Christ to live to the glory of God.

He is Risen – Presence

Read Matthew 28:16-20

[Jesus said] “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20b (NLT)

When we are walking in faith with God, we still often wonder “What comes next?” Jesus usually doesn’t answer this, especially not immediately, but his promise here still holds—“I am with you always.” Periodically, look back and see how God has provided, how he has been with you in every situation. Then continue in his will, knowing that wherever you are, whatever you are facing, Jesus will never leave you or forsake you.
