The Eternal Worth Of Our Inheritance
Before God created anything, He planned and purposed to save a people for Himself and give them an inheritance of infinite worth. How we value our eternal inheritance directly impacts how we live every day. May we truly treasure Jesus and live for Him each day as we look toward the promised marriage and the full extent of our relationship with Him.
Scripture: Ephesians 1:11-14

    Martin Luther: Clarification Of The Gospel And The Protestant Reformation
    For many years, Martin Luther struggled to find a right standing before God. He thought he could achieve justification by doing all that the church proscribed. However, none of those works could truly rescue him from the sin that he battled with. When his eyes were open to the great truth that we are justified by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, he chose to devote his life to spreading the message of the gospel. May we look to Jesus' finished work on the cross as the only means of salvation.

    Extravagant Love
    Jesus was invited to a Pharisee's house, and while He was there, a woman, known for her immoral lifestyle, fell to Jesus' feet to worship Him. This woman knew that she was living a life of disobedience to God and felt the great love and forgiveness of Jesus. Her response to Jesus' extravagant love was extravagant worship. She poured out a vial of expensive perfume at His feet and washed them. This perfume amounted to her entire life savings. May we live a life of extravagant worship in response to Jesus' extravagant love toward us.
    Scripture: Luke 7:36-50

    Go Be The Church
    The church of Colossae was started by an ordinary man named, Epaphras. God uses every day followers of Christ to build His Kingdom. May we not think that ministry is carried out only by pastors on Sunday, but may we go and be the church every day in our communities and workplaces. May we proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to those people God puts in our paths every week.

    Be One, Make One: The Path Of Discipleship
    In Luke 9, Jesus explained the heart of discipleship. In order to make disciples, we must be faithful disciples of Jesus. We must deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Jesus. May we intentionally make disciples as we seek to be more like Jesus every day.

    Set Your Sights
    There are many things in this world that try to steal our attention away from Jesus. In Psalm 27, we see how David responded to his difficult circumstances. David received his strength from God and did not fear his enemies. In the New Testament, Matthew explains the account of Jesus walking on the water. Peter was so focused on Jesus that he stepped out of the boat in faith. However, the moment he took his eyes off of Jesus, he sank. May we keep our eyes fixed on the Author and Finisher of our faith, Jesus.
    Scripture: Psalm 27, Matthew 14

    Our Greatest Need Is Forgiveness
    In Matthew's account of the healing of the paralytic man, he made it clear that the man's greatest need wasn't physical healing. His greatest need was the forgiveness of his sins. While it's easy to focus on our physical needs, we cannot neglect the deeper need in our souls to be cleansed and forgiven of sin. Don't allow the guilt of sin to weigh you down, Bring it to Jesus and feel the freedom of forgiveness.
    Scripture: Matthew 9:2-8

    Even When It Hurts: I’ll Praise You
    If we're honest, life is really hard sometimes. It's easy to put on a facade and act as though everything is awesome, when it's not. In Psalm 13, we see that our sovereign and loving God can handle our biggest doubts and deepest pain. As we are honest with God about our pain, we can pray specifically for what we need God to provide in those moments. We can wrestle with the tension that our God is sovereign, but we still suffer. Let's praise God for the truth that we know, even when we don't feel that it's true.

    Lost: The Lost Intention Of The Parable
    Luke 15 is best known for the parable of the Prodigal Son. However, the father in the story had two sons. The older son represented the Pharisees who thought highly of themselves because they were outwardly obedient. It's easy for us, as believers, to have the same attitude of self-righteousness. God desires that our hearts be changed, and that our obedience would reflect a deep love for Him. We could never earn God's amazing grace.

    Lost: To The Far Country And Back
    In one of the most famous parables in the Bible, Jesus tells of a Father who had two lost sons. One son took his inheritance and wasted it all on reckless living. As we look more closely into this story, we see how serious the son's sin was and how much greater his Father loved him. Anytime a person turns from their sin and runs to Jesus is a cause for great celebration.
    Scripture: Luke 15:11-24
