Daily Devotional

EXPLORE ON YOUR OWN

We’ve created this daily devotional to help you explore Scripture on your own. Here’s our recommendation: set aside some time each day to brew yourself a cup of coffee, turn off all your devices, and listen for God. We promise you won’t regret it.

The Daily Devotional premiers Monday through Friday at 5am, and is written by Chaplain Ken Hart.

Christmas Foretold and Fulfilled - The Messiah's Arrival - Divine Orchestration

Today we begin week two of a four-week Devotional Series entitled, “Christmas: Foretold & Fulfilled.” In this series we will examine the original Christmas Story.

Oh, dear! I suppose some set down at the store is missing a Baby Jesus because we have 2.""You two run back down to the store and tell the manager that we have an extra Jesus. Tell him to put a sign on the remaining boxes saying that if a set is missing a Baby Jesus, call 7126. Put on your warm coats, it's freezing cold out there."
