2 Kings 19-20; 1 Corinthians 7; Psalm 149 Over the last few weeks, reading through the Old Testament together, we have wrestled with our understanding of the true prophetic.

Recovering the Prophetic: Truth and Grace in Scripture’s Fullness

2 Kings 11-12; 1 Corinthians 3; Psalm 145 Well, I’ve been writing a lot lately. I’ve been processing a lot. And you know, that’s what we are supposed to do as we read through the Word.

Beyond the Facade: Awakening to a Genuine Jesus Movement

2 Kings 9-10; 1 Corinthians 2; Psalm 144 An open letter to the charismatic church: What are we wearing? We are being exposed. The church is being sifted and purified. Things are heating up.

Exposed: Confronting the Dark Underbelly of Charismatic Christianity

Are you dealing with immature people? Is it doing its intended work in you? Ugh. Church is hard. Building together, working through issues as they arise, is tough work. Partnering with God in ministry, marriage, and business is not for the faint of heart, to be sure. We want what we want, we see things […]

Embracing the Mess: Finding Unity in a Divided Church

Reflecting on Romans 14, we see a clear directive: “Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him.” Who are we to judge another’s servant? Each person stands or falls before their own master, […]

Breaking the Chains of Division: Rediscovering Unity in Christianity

Guest Devotional Post: Juniah Ramirez 1 Kings 19-20; Romans 12; Psalm 138 I recently immersed myself in the latest episodes of ‘The Chosen,’ and the intensity of the storyline truly captivated me. Despite its controversy, I hold a genuine affection for the show, recognizing its place as biblical fiction rather than a replacement for the […]

Navigating Faith and Controversy: A Critical Look at ‘The Chosen’ and Modern Challenges

Guest Post:  Marcia Thorsell I Kings 7-8; Romans 6; Psalm 132 In the past, the thing I came away with from Romans 6 was vs 23, which I had memorized as a tool to lead someone to the Lord.  In fact, I have missed the point of this chapter.  It’s about freedom from sin.  Unfortunately, […]

Living in Victory Over Sin….No More Excuses

Photo Credit: Noya Fields Family Guest Post:  Debra Wynn  1 Kings 5-6; Romans 5; Psalm 131 Years ago, I heard a phrase in my sleep:“simple devotion.” When I awakened, I found our beloved kitty “Mel” (short for Melchizedek, of course) dead on our doorstep, curled around himself, as if asleep. God had prepared me in […]

Breaking Free from Perfection: Embracing Faith Over Law in Our Spiritual Journey

Leviticus 12-13; Matthew 25; Psalm 121 The trouble with accusation is that it doesn’t reveal what we think it does. It doesn’t reveal the other; it doesn’t indict the other; it exposes our own heart. Our accusations expose us. A.W. Tozer said, “What you think about God is the most important thing about you.” And […]
