Jeremiah 6:16

Thus says the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you shall find rest for your souls.

Romans 12:2

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing, and perfect will.
— Jeremiah 29:11

Thoughts on today’s verse

Don’t be molded by the world. Wow, isn’t that a tough one to obey? It’s a reminder that what we think is one of the places of greatest spiritual warfare. Sloppy thinking is more than sloppy, it’s dangerous because we are fed messages constantly that distort God’s truth and holy values. But rather than being incensed by the world acting like the world, let’s be transformed by renewing our minds and Read more →

Jeremiah 29:11

I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— Jeremiah 29:11

Thoughts on today’s verse

When Israel lay devastated in the face of a ruthless enemy that would rob all glory and strip bare the very soul of God’s people, God issued his promise. While the destruction visited upon them was in response to their rebellion and sin, God’s punishment wasn’t punitive alone, but redemptive. In their destruction, God promised prosperity, hope, and Read more →

The Impact of the Gospel

Daily Devotion with Greg Laurie

“Moreover you see and hear that not only at Ephesus, but throughout almost all Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying that they are not gods which are made with hands.”
— Acts 19:26

 

The city of Ephesus plays a prominent part in the New Testament church, especially in the life and ministry of the apostle Paul. He spent two years in this city.

Ephesus was a center of worship for the false goddess known as Artemis, or Diana. The residents of Ephesus made money selling artifacts of the goddess, and it was very profitable for them. Everything was going along fine until the apostle Paul showed up and began to preach the gospel. As God began to work, Read more →

Have You Lost Your Light?

Daily Devotion with Greg Laurie

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
— Matthew 5:16

 

Awhile back I went to Starbucks with my friend, Marty Goetz. And Marty ordered a low-fat, decaf latte.

So I turned to him and said, “Why? Why don’t you just order an empty cup and pretend to be drinking a latte?” Low-fat means all the fun is gone. And decaf means all the buzz is gone.

It can be the same way with Christians. We can be ineffective because of compromise, because of Read more →

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
— Psalm 46:1

Thoughts on today’s verse

Where can we go when all the walls fall and all the armies crumble and all hope is lost? To the eternal God, who is our Father. He preserved Israel through the most difficult of times, protected the Bible from those who would eradicate it, and has led his Church through troubles and triumphs through the centuries. He will do Read more →

The Meaning of the Cross

Greg LaurieA true story was reported about a couple visiting a jewelry store. As the jeweler showed them various cross necklaces, the woman commented, “I like these, but do you have any without this little man on them?”

That’s what so many people want today: a cross without Jesus. They want a cross without any offense. . .one that will look cool with their outfits. But if we could travel back in time and see the cross in its original context, we would realize that it was a bloody and vile symbol. It would have been the worst Read more →
