Today’s Devotional: Deeper Than Words

August 25, 2021

When digging into God’s Word, we must delve deep—deeper than words. We need to ask God to grant us spiritual eyes when reading the Scriptures, so that we can look deeper. The words in the Bible are good, but they are just words until we look deeper into them, through them.

Today’s Devotional: True Tradition

August 24, 2021

What were the ideas and motives behind the actions of previous saints? When we earnestly ask that question, we are genuinely honoring tradition. We are seeking to preserve more than the mere wineskin—we are seeking to preserve the wine.

Today’s Devotional: No Rush

August 24, 2021

The next time you feel rushed or overwhelmed, remind yourself of God's words which tell us to rest in Him. Turn off the TV, the radio, or whatever distraction is before you just now, and spend some real time in silence, waiting on the Lord.
