Ebenezer

Though we have more than mere survival to be thankful for, can we not see even in this survival evidence that God is willing to help us? He has not only proven His power, but He has proven His patience with us!

The Strong Heart Is Not Callous

Jesus felt the whole range of human emotions, and He felt them intensely. We should aspire to a strength that is no less alive. Genuine discipleship to the Son of Man will not turn us into unfeeling robots. It will teach us to feel what God feels.

Clarity

Why are we so terrified for God to speak to us? Is it because we know that when God speaks we must either do what He asks or tell Him we will not obey?

Peace and Truth

When we are grounded in the truth about God, we can be guarded by the promise that those who’re rightly related to Him through Christ will share in His victory.

Small Steps That Lead to Great Understanding

Godly wisdom must be sought actively and obediently. If conscience can indicate only a step or two, then a great deal depends on our taking those steps. What we don’t know must never prevent us from doing the duty we do know.

Devotional and Bible study resources for the serious seeker. Written by Gary Henry, WordPoints materials encourage spiritual growth. Whether you view yourself as a Christian already or you’re just searching for answers to honest questions, these daily devotions and biblical studies will challenge you.
The Christian daily devotional books published by WordPoints — the WordPoints Daybook Series — are written with a lofty goal: we want to define a new standard for daily devotional books. In contrast to much that is published in the “devotional” genre today, our devotionals are different in at least four ways:
  1.   A more God-centered approach to spirituality.
  2.   A better balance between gratitude and reverence.
  3.   A more serious approach to devotional meditation.
  4.   A better balance between candor and courtesy.

Content published by WordPoints is intended to be provocative in the highest sense. If we do no more than give folks an encouraging “hug” and an approving “pat on the back,” we will have failed to serve them as we should. When we write, therefore, it is not merely to tranquilize our audience. Our purpose is to move readers out of their comfort zones — and then help them experience real spiritual growth.

Investigating the texts contained in the Bible is an important activity, and we hope that our Bible study materials reflect that importance. WordPoints Bible studies are not fluffy, feel-good exercises, but significant guides to serious study. If you want to dig deeper into the Scriptures, you’ve come to the right place.

We recognize that Bible study is sometimes surrounded by controversy, and we do not hide from that controversy. But we do try to balance candor and courtesy, in the belief that the search for truth about God should bring out the very best in us.

Christian Daily Devotional Books

Each book in the WordPoints Daybook Series is available from Amazon.com. Visit Gary’s “Author Page” at Amazon for more details.

Our newest volume, More Enthusiastic Ideas, is scheduled for publication this fall. It will be great for end-of-the-year gift-giving!

Living (March 16)

Silence and Solitude (March 16)

My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning? O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, and am not silent. But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.... read more

Welfare (March 15)
