Devotions on Discipleship

How to Purify Your Heart

Psalm 51:10 Concluding our consideration on the subject of Christian sincerity, we reflect on the things we can do to strengthen it within our souls and to weaken our hypocrisy.

Motives to Sincerity

Psalm 84 In a world full of hypocrisy and dishonesty, we examine several Scriptures to help us desire sincerity more and hypocrisy less. Sometimes we need to see things in their true colors to help convince us what will be best for us.

The Test of Sincerity

Psalm 119:1-8 This is the most important question we can answer for ourselves personally: How can we know we’re truly the Lord’s?

Christian Sincerity

Matthew 5:48 We consider how to walk with God in sincerity – with an honest and true heart. We see two things: *First, why we should desire godly sincerity. *Second, what gracious sincerity is.

Thankfulness in Prosperity

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 We look at how to walk with God during times of blessing, and during the particular difficulties that can come our way at those times.

Transformed from Glory to Glory

2 Corinthians 3 In a day where the prevailing philosophy is of instant gratification, we see that this is not the way that the Lord normally works to transform His children into the likeness of Christ.

The Communion of Saints

Hebrews 10:19-25 What is Christian fellowship? Is it just a group of professing Christians gathering together for any purpose at all, like watching a football game? Or is fellowship something deeper and more spiritual than this?

How to Walk with God around Others

Matthew 5:1-16 We move from examining how we are to walk with God when we are alone to how we are to walk with Him in the company of others. No matter whom we are around, our goal should always be to speak and act to glorify God.

Christian Meditation

Psalm 119:9-16 We continue to consider how we can spend our time alone profitably, and at the same time better understand the Bible. We focus on Christian meditation, seeing that it must include contemplation, self-examination and self-exhortation.

Reading Good Books

Ephesians 4:7-16 In the last message we considered the benefits of reading the Bible and this time we reflect on the blessing that good books can be to us.
