Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

Out of Zion Shall Go Forth the Law (February 24)

Out of Zion Shall Go Forth the Law (February 24)

What began to “go forth” from Jerusalem on Pentecost was the preaching of the full truth about God’s means of saving the world in Jesus Christ. Since then, anyone who has heard that message — and obeyed it — has come into a forgiven relationship with God.

The Great Encounter (February 24)

Events can seem so overwhelming it’s hard to feel we’re anything more than “dust in the wind.” And yet there remains within us a will that is free. When we make even a single choice to do what is right before God, we alter the course of history for the better.

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).
