Devotion for February 09, 2008 Two Old Testament stories paint a picture to help us understand the authority God gave Moses and how He meant for him to use it.

Devotion for February 24, 2008 In his book, God in the Wasteland, David Wells laments, “It is one of the defining marks of our time that God is now weightless. I do not mean by this that he is ethereal, but rather that he has become unimportant. He rests on the world so inconsequentially as not to be noticeable.” The “weightlessness” of God...

Devotion for February 02, 2005 Evangelist D. L. Moody was deeply affected by the observation of Henry Varley who said, “The world has yet to see what God can do with and for and through and in a man who is fully and wholly consecrated to Him.” It is a challenging question.

Devotion for February 16, 2005 When Christians talk about having a “mountain-top” experience, they are alluding to the incident described in today’s passage. A mountain-top experience is one that is spiritually exhilarating but temporary. Although we might wish to prolong it, sooner or later we must leave the mountain and go down into the...

Devotion for February 06, 2008 Students are known to complain, “Why do I have to know this?

Devotion for February 20, 2006 In his book The Spirit of the Disciplines, author Dallas Willard writes that being created in the image of God means that we have been given a measure of independent power. “Without such power, we absolutely could not resemble God in the close manner he intended, or could we be God’s co-workers,” Willard explains.
