Recent Devotionals

Ash Wednesday – Psalm 32

Read Psalm 32:1-7

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
Psalm 32:5 (NLT)

Lent is a season of penitent reflection, making sure our lives are aligned with God’s will. God’s forgiveness brings joy, but stubborn denial of sin on our part has physical and emotional consequences, along with the spiritual consequences. Listen as Jason works through Psalm 32 on this Ash Wednesday.

All Things New – Servant Attitude

Read Philippians 2:5-11

Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
he took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,
he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross. (Philippians 2:7-8 NLT)

”What’s in it for me?” is not the attitude of Christ. Secure in His status as the Son of God, Christ willingly became a servant (and then our Savior). As Christ-followers, we are expected to be secure in our status as children of God and willingly serve others as we follow Jesus’ example.
