Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

The Obedience of Faith (January 26)

The Obedience of Faith (January 26)

In the world, obedience is often based on personal feelings or legal obligation, but in the gospel, it’s based on trust in God. Confident that His way is always the best, we obey. No matter how things look to us, we trust His love to bring us home.

Diligently Seeking God

Hearts That Feel Nothing (January 26)

Hearts That Feel Nothing (January 26)

The strongest language in Scripture is reserved for the dull of heart. We have become, as T. S. Eliot warned, “hollow men.” And this world-weary nothingness is frightening. We are never closer to hell than when our hearts feel . . . nothing.

Reaching Forward

Led by Light to His Dwelling (January 26)

Led by Light to His Dwelling (January 26)

Challenging Every Person to Take God More Seriously

Devotional Meditation

Rather than thinking about God casually, meditation is a deep pondering of His truth. When we meditate devotionally, the facts about God are given more than a “passing glance.” We think about them intently and lovingly so their meaning can truly sink in.

Daily Devotional Books

Unfortunately, many of the best-selling devotionals are popular not because they produce greater devotion to God but because they give the reader a sugary “high.” They aim to make the reader feel better, but they do little to stimulate significant spiritual growth.

Devotion to God

Devotional strength must be built up by constant, disciplined practice over time. Paul reminded his young friend Timothy of this when he said, “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).
