Daily Devotionals

  • Hospitality and hospital come from the same Latin word, for they both lead to the same result– healing.  When you open your door to someone, you are sending this message:  “You matter to me and to God.” Do you know people who need this message?  Your hospitality can ...

  • Our society is set up for isolation.  We communicate via e-mail and text messages.  Our mantra is “I leave you alone; you leave me alone.”  Yet God wants his people to be an exception, people of hospitality. “Every day in the Temple and in people’s homes they c...

  • What if the missing ingredient for changing the world is teamwork?  “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action” (Matthew 18:19 MSG).  This is an astounding promise! The Jerusalem church found a way to ...

  • None of us can do what all of us can do.  Remember Jesus’ commission to his disciples?  You (speaking to all of you collectively) will be my witnesses (Acts 1:8).  Jesus didn’t issue individual assignments.  He works in community. “Jesus is the head of the body,...

  • Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again” (John 6:35). You know, the grain-to-bread process is a demanding one.  Bread is the end result of planting, harvesting, and heating.  Jesus endured an identical process.  He was born...

  • Pentecost was the busiest day of the year in Jerusalem.  And Jesus’ followers were gathered in prayer.  They were not separated from society but smack-dab in the center of it.  Once God had them where he needed them, the Holy Spirit came upon them suddenly; first as wind and the...

  • 1 Corinthians 1:27 says, “God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. I invite you to pray this prayer with me: Loving Father, you made me, so you know very well that I am but dust.  Yet you have called me into your kingdom to serve you at...
