Challenging Every Person to Take God More Seriously

Is devotion to God your primary passion? Our daily devotionals and Bible studies are designed to help you pursue this goal. More than mere fluff, our readings are “devotionals with a difference.” If you’re ready to reach toward spiritual growth, we’re here to support you.

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.

Reaching Forward

If We Don’t Forgive, We’re Paralyzed (January 23)

If We Don’t Forgive, We’re Paralyzed (January 23)

We paralyze ourselves by failing to forgive. Having done little to rid our hearts of resentment, we find that our minds do little but replay the past. Energy that should be spent building a better future is wasted in bitterness, and the road to the future is blocked.

Loyalty (January 23)

Loyalty (January 23)

We all pay lip service to the value of loyalty. But if the truth be told, we aren’t always as loyal as we should be. Too often, we fail to follow through. We fail to keep promises. We back out of inconvenient commitments. And our lives are damaged by this disloyalty.
