The Servant Shall Be Exalted

The Servant Shall be Exhalted by Elizabeth George

Isaiah is considered among the greatest of the Old Testament prophets because of his many predictions of the Messiah. For instance, Christmas is the time when...

The Women at the Feet, the Cross, and the Tomb of Jesus

DEVOTION: When I need strength and courage, I remember the women at the cross and the tomb of Jesus. I’m always amazed that a small band of ladies stayed with our Lord to the very end, even when His closest disciples left! Whenever you want to take a shortcut or pass on something important or risky, remember the women at His feet, His cross, and His tomb.

Those Who Serve Shall Be Exalted

DEVOTIONJesus was the Son of God, yet he was the ultimate servant. Perhaps my favorite verse about our Lord is Matthew 20:28: "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." One thing that touches my heart about this truth is that it is written in the book of Matthew, and Matthew is the Gospel that most exalts Jesus, as Messiah, the King! Yet, serving was a strong quality in King Jesus’ life – a priority and a way of life for Him.

Proclaim His Coming: Preparing the Way

DEVOTION: Jesus also must have been considering His own future suffering when He encouraged John the Baptist that his suffering and humble service were for the greater purpose of offering redemption and eternal life for all. This is a wonderful time to thank God for the gift of His Son, our Savior, and those saints who came before us proclaiming the Gospel.

The Women at the Cross

When I need strength and courage, I remember the women at the cross and the tomb of Jesus. Whenever I read Mark, chapter 15 and 16, I’m always amazed that a small band of ladies stayed with our Lord to the very end, even when His closest disciples left! These women stood near the cross […]

“It’s time, girls! It’s Good Friday! Today is the day we bake our cross-shaped cookies for our neighbors. First we’ll mix the dough and roll it out. Then we’ll cut out the cookies with our cross cookie cutter. And after the cookies are baked, we’ll wrap up a plateful for each neighbor and decorate the […]

Living with Heaven in View

A small child once wrote, “Dear God, what is it like when you die? Nobody will tell me. I just want to know because I don’t want to do it!” From the outside looking in, the celebration of Easter might seem to be about Christ’s suffering, death, and payment for our sins. But, for those […]

Proclaim His Coming

The savior of the world certainly did come to earth in an unexpected way. He came as a servant of God to sacrifice himself for us. It wasn’t immediately apparent to others that Jesus was the Messiah, the King, they were waiting for. But, God had prepared a way. Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist, was […]
