Sunday - Freedom in Christ - Galatians 5:1-17 - 2/19/17
Christ died to set us free from sin & from a long list of laws & regulations. Trying to be saved by keeping the Law & being saved by grace are two different approaches. We are saved by faith, not works, but love for others & for God is the response of those...

Saturday - Produce the Fruit of the Spirit - Galatians 5:22-16 - 2/18/17
The "fruit of the Spirit: is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit in us. They are the by-products of Christ's control, & we can't obtain them by trying to get them. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us, we must join our lives to his. We mu...

Tuesday - The Lord is God Alone - Deuteronomy 6:4-9 - 2/14/17
Monotheism - believing only one God - was a distinctive feature of Hebrew religion. Many ancient religions believed in many gods. But the God of Abraham, Issac, & Jacob is the God of the whole earth, the only true God. This was an important insight for t...

Monday - Christ, the Wisdom of God - I Corinthians 1:18-25 - 2/13/17
God's way of thinking is not like the world's way (normal human wisdom), but God offers eternal life while the world cannot. We can spend a lifetime accumulating human wisdom & never learn how to have a personal relationship with God. We must come to Chri...

Sunday - New Birth Brings Freedom - Galatians 4:8-20 -2/12/17
The apostle Paul commended the Galatians for not rejecting him, even though his condition was revolting (he doesn't explain what was wrong with him). Such caring was what Jesus meant when he called us to serve the homeless, hungry, sick, & imprisoned as if ...

Saturday - Led by the Spirit of Christ - Romans 8:12-17 -2/11/17
"Mortify the deeds of the body" in verse thirteen means to put to death or regard as dead the power of sin in your body. The apostle Paul uses adoption to illustrate the believer's new relationship with God. In Roman culture, the adopted person lost all ri...

Friday - The Spirit Brings Life - Romans 8:1-11 - 2/10/17
The "flesh" as used throughout this chapter refers not to our human bodies, but to the principle & power of sin. Sin is present & often operating in our body, not to be equaled with the body. "Not guilty; let him go free"- what would those words mean to yo...

Thursday - The Cost of Being a Disciple - Luke 9:23-27,57-62 - 2/9/17
Christians follow their Lord by imitating his life & obeying his commands. To take up the cross means to obey selfish desires to use our resources of time & money our own way, & to choose our own direction in life. Following Christ is costly now, but in t...

Wednesday - Power & Strength through Weakness - II Corinthians 12:7b-10 - 2/8/17
We don't know what Paul's "thorn in the flesh" was because he doesn't tell us. Whatever it was, it was a chronic & debilitaling physical problem, which at times kept him from working. This thorn was a hindrance to his ministry, & he prayed for its removal...
