[06/21/21]   Being Needy for Jesus


“And he answered and said to Him, ‘Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.’” (Mark 10:20)


Mark 10 tells the sad story of the rich young ruler who, when given the opportunity to follow Jesus, turned away. This story offers four insights to help avoid striking out at the opportunity to follow Christ.

First, proud men at their best are sinners at their worst.

This man in Mark 10 was quite proud of his achievements; he was eager, full of strength and the vigor of youth. Outwardly, he was morally clean; he knew the commandments and had kept them in his youth. But Jesus taught him things he didn’t expect: the young ruler, in himself, was not good, and also, Jesus Himself is God.

Second, God’s perfect law condemns man’s sinful pride.

God is a holy God with holy laws; the purpose of the law is to show us our need for Christ. God’s grace means nothing to us until we first see ourselves as sinners in the sight of a holy God. When a person has been wounded by God’s law, then he or she is ready for the healing balm of salvation.


Have you been deceived to believe that you can be good in God’s sight?
How does recognizing our own sin make God’s grace more precious to us?


Beginning with Jesus’ sacrifice on your behalf, make a list of ways God has shown you His grace despite your sinfulness.

[06/18/21]   Four Principles for Victory


“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.” (Galatians 5:17)
In this spiritual battle against the world, the devil, and the flesh, we can oftentimes be our own biggest enemies. In Exodus 17, God called the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt and led them through the wilderness toward Canaan.

Reading this story as Christians, we see Egypt represents the world, Pharaoh the devil, and Canaan the victorious life. There are four principles of victory found in this passage. Yesterday, we looked at one, God’s gracious provision, and two, His grand purpose.

Third, we must respect the grievous problem. (See Galatians 5:17.) As the Amalekites came against the Israelites in their weakest moments, the flesh will come up against us in our journey to the “promised land.”

Finally, we must remember the glorious principle: Victory is God-given. We overcome the flesh by the power of God. Holiness is not the way to Christ; Christ is the way to holiness. When you take the rod of God, which is the Word, the Power, and the Spirit of God, and hold it high, you will see victory.


Where do you currently feel the pull of your flesh?
How might you pursue God and His Word to fight against the flesh?


Take practical steps in the fight against your flesh today. Spend time in the Word and prayer, trusting God for victory over the world, the devil, and the flesh.

[06/17/21]   Four Principles for Victory


“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” (Exodus 17:6)
In this spiritual battle against the world, the devil, and the flesh, we can oftentimes be our own biggest enemies. In Exodus 17, God called the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt and led them through the wilderness toward Canaan.

Reading this story as Christians, we see Egypt represents the world, Pharaoh the devil, and Canaan the victorious life. There are four principles of victory found in this passage.

First, we must receive a gracious provision. In Exodus 17, the Israelites were in the barren land, dying of thirst. God instructed Moses to strike a rock with his rod, and when he did, water gushed from the rock. This is a glorious illustration of our salvation. Jesus, the rock of ages, was smitten for us. And the blood and water that flowed from His side represent the Holy Spirit.

Second, we must realize God’s grand purpose. God’s plan for His people was not merely that they come out of Egypt and go into the wilderness of Sinai. God’s plan for His people was that they go into the land of Canaan. God brought them out that He might bring them in. Many of us have been brought out of the world, but we’ve never experienced the victory of Canaan. But God has brought us out to bring us in.


Where can you recognize God’s gracious provision in your life? How is Christ the ultimate provision for every Christian?
Where do you question God’s purpose in your life? How is Exodus 17 an encouragement in this area?


Read Exodus 17 today and take time to recognize God’s provision and purpose in this account.

[06/16/21]   Those Who Seek Wisdom

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.” (Proverbs 13:20)


As parents, there are four things we must keep in mind in order to raise wise children.

First, we need to expound truth to our children; saturate them in the Proverbs; emblazon the Ten Commandments into their consciousness; teach them the Beatitudes, that they might learn these simple, basic truths.

Second, expose sin: children need to see the repercussions of sin to understand their weight. We must pull away the veil and show them the ugly truth of sin and its consequences.

We must also expel fools, as Proverbs 13:20 instructs. We cannot let our young, impressionable children hang around those who reject wisdom; we must be firm with who we allow them to be friends with.

Finally, we must express love—be gentle, transparent, and available. Words can hurt your children more than an open hand and a slap in the face. Love your children and delight in them.


Which of these principles stands out most to you? Why?
Where do you need to be honest about sin in your own life to point others toward wisdom?


Take time to express love and delight to those close to you today, whether your own children or someone else.

[06/15/21]   Those Who Reject Wisdom


“How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge.” (Proverbs 1:22)


These days, our nation is in troubled waters, and the problem is rooted in fathers who fail to accept their responsibility. The Book of Proverbs reveals how to be the father of a wise child.

When our children are young, they are simple, ignorant, and careless, which is to be expected. However, some children are never taught to grow in wisdom and remain simple in their adulthood. They may have knowledge, but they lack spiritual wisdom and understanding. They are easily led into error, ready to believe anything.

If a child remains naive and has not been led by his or her father, he or she defies instruction and despises the good and godly. Because of this, he or she is destined for destruction.

Those who reject godliness are very hard to reach, but there is still hope for them. If they are not reclaimed, they become fools; the scoffer is disrespectful, but the fool is immovable. The fool rejects wisdom, ridicules righteousness, and rejoices in iniquity. His or her moral sense has been so perverted, he or she thinks good is evil and evil is good.


What are some ways you have rejected godly teaching and thinking in the past?
How has God moved you from a place of rejection to wisdom?


Who do you know that needs guidance in wisdom? How can you connect with that person this week to seek to point him or her toward the wisdom of God?

[06/14/21]   The Value of a Godly Home


“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” (Proverbs 31:28)


What we need to understand is that it is not business, it is not education, it is not recreation, it is not government, it is not the Church, but the home that is the basic unit of everything and, therefore, all of the artillery of Hell is leveled against the home.

As they get older, kids are being asked the question: What are you going to be? What are you going to do? Many of them feel that they have to achieve something more than living as a godly spouse or a parent to be successful and not be considered a failure or waste. But that is not a waste. That is the highest, deepest, sweetest, fullest, most meaningful thing—to have a godly Christian home.


Where have you been convinced that you have to do more than faithfully follow the Lord to be successful?
Where might you need to reprioritize your life to give greater focus to faithfully living for the Lord each day?


List some ways Christians are successful before God that may not be considered successful to the world.

[06/11/21]   You Need to Slow Down!


“He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.” (Psalm 23:2)


Sometimes I hear advisers tell young people, “Make all the money you can, just so you make it honestly.” That’s not good advice!

If you make all the money you can, you’re going to be making money when you should be doing something else. You’re going to be making money when you ought to be with your family, your spouse, your children, or other believers—and above all, alone with God.

I’m not against making money. I’m simply saying we need to stop and prioritize our lives. Do you know what I think God does with some of us? He makes us “to lie down.” We won’t do it unless He makes us. Don’t let it come to that.


Why not stop right now and pray, “Lord Jesus, You don’t have to make me lie down. I’d rather slow down. I want to be still and know that You are GOD! Show me how.”

[06/10/21]   The Godly Woman | Part II


“…to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5)
This passage teaches us the lifestyle the godly woman is to live. Here are some descriptions regarding a godly woman:

Discreet: She is sober-minded, sensible, using good judgment in her daily decisions.
Chaste: She is sexually moral and pure.
Homemakers: A woman’s primary responsibility is to keep a beautiful home. As we learned yesterday, a beautiful home does not necessarily mean a beautiful physical appearance of the home, but a godly home that is beautiful because of the work of Jesus in the hearts of those who dwell in it.
Good: She is kind-hearted.
Obedient to her husband: Submission is not subjugation; wives are instructed to submit to their husbands’ loving leadership in the home. Submitting to her husband’s leadership is biblical and does not mean that the two are not equal.
As you think about the godly woman’s submission to God and to her husband within the family, ask yourself: when is a train more free—on the train tracks or running through the meadow? When you get on God’s plan and begin to obey the Word, you’ll find that God will give you incredible liberty.


How have you experienced these godly characteristics in the lives of women you know?
How are these characteristics connected to the godly character that all Christians should aspire to?


Take a moment to thank God for the godly women you know; ask Him to bless them today.

[06/09/21]   The Godly Woman | Part I


“…the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children...” (Titus 2:3-4)


God is in favor of beautiful homes; yet these days, our families face many enemies that threaten to drain us of our splendor. The key to a beautiful home is the wife and mother. Titus 2 shows us what it means to be a godly mother and how to make a home beautiful. A beautiful home isn’t just about appearance, rather, it’s a Godly home that is beautiful because of the God-honoring hearts who live there.

This passage first addresses the legacy a godly woman is to leave. She teaches younger women how to instill values in their own families by example. She has the perfume of God in her life. She is marked by holiness and godliness in her speech. She is not to be a false accuser, one looking for scandals, or a slanderer, nor does she indulge in addictive behaviors.

Secondly, this passage tells of the love the godly woman is to learn. Being a mother is not easy, nor is it glamorous, but there is no higher calling. The impression a mother can leave on her children will last a lifetime and has an eternal impact.


What are some things you can thank God for about your mother?
How did your mother shape your life today? How has that affected the way you interact with those you have influence over?


Today, encourage someone you know who is a godly woman, living out the values of Titus 2:3-4.

[06/08/21]   Are We Training Our Children?


“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)


Are we training our children? The word train in the dictionary says this: “to prepare for a contest, to instruct by exercise, to drill, to form to a proper shape, to discipline for use.” Great basketball players do not learn how to play basketball by reading a book. They are trained. They are coached. We have to train and coach our children. We have to pray. We have to teach. We have to plead. We have to show by example.

If we teach our children and that’s all we do, we’ll teach them one thing, but someone else can come along and teach them something else. But when we train them, they get something through the pores of their skin into their very psyche through this training. There’s a difference between teaching and training.


If you have children, have you made a pattern of training them, or have you simply taught them without example? Explain.
Where have you found it most valuable to be trained in something and not only taught?


Take time this week to train someone else—whether a child or another person close to you—in a practice of the Christian life.

[06/04/21]   Are You an Encourager?


And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet. (Acts 4:36-37)


The Book of Acts tells the story of a man called Barnabas, which translates to, “son of encouragement.” Five characteristics of Barnabas’ “gift of encouragement” show us how to be encouragers for others.

First, encouragers see needs that they can meet and meet them. (See Acts 4:36.)

Second, encouragers find lonely people and include them. (See Acts 9:26-30.)

Third, encouragers find a misunderstood person and affirm him or her. (See Acts 11:19-26.)

Fourth, encouragers develop disciples. Barnabas found buried gifts in new disciples and helped them develop their talents.
Fifth, encouragers help failures find second chances. (See Acts 15:26-41.)
Barnabas was a good man, full of the Holy Ghost; it was God in Him. We can all be encouragers like Barnabas. Ask God to fan the Holy Spirit in you to meet needs, befriend lonely people, affirm the misunderstood, develop disciples, and offer second chances.


Do you consider yourself a natural encourager? Why or why not?
How might you grow as an encourager based on today’s devotion?


Take time to encourage one person in a specific way this week, whether through a kind word, a written note, or a phone call.

[06/03/21]   Are You Sowing the Seed?


“Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it. Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away. And some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop. But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” (Mark 4:3-8)


In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus gave a parable of a sower. And as he scattered the seed out of his basket, some fell by the wayside; that is, the soil was hard, and the seed couldn’t get in. Other seed fell on stony ground. It got in but it couldn’t get down because beneath the soil in the subsurface was a rocky ledge. Other seed fell among thorns and it sprouted, but then the weeds and the briars came and choked it out. But some seed fell on good ground and brought forth fruit. It’s not our job to analyze the soil; it’s our job to sow the seed. In this parable, the sower was Jesus Christ Himself. And He didn’t say, “Well, that’s bad soil. I won’t put any seed on it,” or, “that’s rocky soil,” or, “there are thorns.” He just sowed the seed.

Likewise, we are called to just sow the seed. Everywhere we go, just sow the seed. It is God that gives the increase. We can’t make the seed grow, but we can sow the seed.


How faithful are you to sow the seed of the Gospel?
What are some ways you are prone to judge whether a person will receive the seed or not? How does today’s passage challenge that idea?
