Mandate | Commissioned

Monday— I’m astonished that you are quickly turning to a different gospel, which is really no gospel at all. Galatians 1:6-7 What IS this gospel the Bible talks about? Before we can share the gospel with other people, we need to be clear about what it is and what it is NOT. The term “gospel”…

The Surrender Test | Tested

Monday— Some time later, God tested Abraham.  Genesis 22:1 “I hear your department has almost completed work on a flying car,” said Wilt. Lane nodded as he closed his briefcase. “I think we’re there. I’d almost let my kids ride in it.” Wilt laughed. “Well, what’s stopping you?” Lane slid his card through the security…

The Faithfulness Test | Tested

Monday— Let love and faithfulness never leave you; …write them on the tablet of your heart.   Proverbs 3:3 FAITHFULNESS: the quality of being loyal and trustworthy; being true to one’s commitments. Faithfulness is one of God’s characteristics, so when the Holy Spirit moves into a repentant heart, He brings faithfulness with Him (Gal. 5:22-23). To…

The Pit Test | Tested

Monday—  When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him…  Genesis 37:4 He’d done nothing wrong. He’d been trying his best, being fair with everyone, believing he was pleasing God, and they turned on him. Have you been there? You did nothing to deserve the hatred, the…

The Identity Test | Tested

Monday— I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.   Galatians 2:20 “I am” statements have been wildly popular since…

The Patience Test | Tested

Monday— Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.  James 1:13-14 Is it a test or a temptation? It’s easy to…

Baptism

Monday— Make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Matt. 28:19 “Hey, I need to get my kids baptized. Where do I sign ‘em up?” “Sure, I’m a Christian. I got baptized when I was a kid.” “I’ve been messing up and I need…

The Tomb | The Story

Monday—   This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.  Mark 5:3  Tombstones. Graves. Cemeteries. They creep us out a little, especially after dark. Graveyards have an eerie quality because they are so final. No one being buried in a tomb is coming back. In first-century…

The Cross | The Story

Monday—  …without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.  Hebrews 9:22  Why the cross? Couldn’t God just forgive everyone without that? He’s God; can’t He do whatever He wants to? The more we learn about Jesus and His sacrifice, the more we bump into questions like these. Most people know the phrase…

The Fall | The Story

Monday—  God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.  Genesis 1:31  “I can’t believe in a God who would allow such evil in the world,” Shane announced. “Exactly,” answered Monica. “If God is so great, why did He make a world with earthquakes, disease, and murder? Why would a good God…
