The Galilean | John 21:1-14

A Childlike Trust - The Lord’s Prayer | Matthew 6:5-13

This message addresses the 'who' of prayer. We do not pray to an unknown or unknowable deity. We do not pray to an indifferent or aloof God. Rather, Christians pray to Our Father. The one who loves, creates, redeems, rescues, and renews us in Christ through his Holy Spirit. We are his  beloved children and he is our heavenly father.

Eating Christ: What, Why and How | John 6:53-56

Because communing with God was the goal of our creation, the story of Scripture begins with instructions on what and what not to eat. Throughout the history of salvation, the Lord signified and sealed his salvation of his people with a meal. In John 6:53-56, however, our Lord made explicit the reality was heretofore covered in shadows: what must be eaten is neither fruit nor bread but Christ himself.

A Pagan Priest in the Presence of God | Exodus 18:10-22

This devotional will focus on the fact that God welcomes all kinds of people into his presence as he converts them by his grace.  Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, offers a splendid exam as God causes this pagan priest to make a beautiful profession of faith, followed by Jethro eating with the elders of Israel in the presence of God.  Who can’t God save?

Boundless Joy | Philippians 1:18b-26

But God Meant It for Good | Genesis 50:15-21

Among the sterling characters of the Old Testament few surpass Joseph for integrity and faith—which shine all the more given the suffering he was called to endure. From one perspective, his life could be summed up as, "how everything went wrong." But Joseph would insist that "everything went right." Is Joseph a special case and have a special faith?  Or does he testify to a promise that applies to the people of Christ as well?

Guests, Chuck Tedrick   |   November 3, 2020   |   New Testament, Ephesians   |  Type: Morning Devotions Series, Prayers

This meditation reflects upon the Apostle Paul's prayer for the church in Ephesus, which he planted, knows, and loves. By extension this prayer is for Christ's church and people in this present age as we await the Lord's return. Paul's prayer is bold and audacious. It is confident and comforting, knowing that the Lord is able and willing to do more than we can even ask and think.
