Today's reading: 2 Peter 1:16-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17

The message that God and His Word are trustworthy and true came across loud and clear in 2 Peter 1:16-21. Peter makes sure his readers know that what he and the apostles are teaching is the result of being with Jesus while He was on earth ("but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. . ." vs. 16) and that every part of God's Word--every phrase, sentence, chapter, book--is from God.

"For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." (vs. 21)

As I read this passage, I immediately thought of Paul's similar message in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, which says:

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."

What does knowing that Peter was an eyewitness to Jesus's teaching, miracles, death and resurrection reveal about the Gospel message? How does knowing that every word of the Bible is "from God" impact your mindset about, approach to and confidence in God's Word? Tami

Good Qualities

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: 2 Peter 1:1-15

Today we move on to 2 Peter, which is a letter to the church at large. As Peter starts his letter, he provides those who are followers of Christ with a progressive list of qualities we should strive to possess and put into practice in order to have and then maintain a strong walk with God.

"Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love." (vs. 5-7)

Reading through this list and then verse 10--which tells us that if we practice these qualities we will not fall--I was prompted to ask myself:

  • Do I possess these qualities?
  • Am I putting these qualities into practice? What are some examples?
  • Am I growing in these areas, and how?

It was a good assessing exercise that helped me recognize those areas where I'm doing well as well as those areas where I need to work a little harder.

Now it's your turn to do a little self-assessing. Do you possess the qualities Peter writes of in verses 5-7? How are you putting them into practice? Do you believe you're growing in one or more of these areas? What's one example? Tami

Our God

Today's reading: Psalm 8:1-9

Psalm 8 is a wonderful declaration of the magnificence, power and glory of God paired with a description of how God loves us so greatly (created us with glory and honor and gave us dominion over things on earth). One thing that came across clearly to me through this psalm is how this mighty God is also personal. "O LORD, our Lord. . ." (vs. 1 and 9, emphasis mine).

What does it mean to you that the God who set the moon and stars in place is "your" God? How would you explain God being a "personal" God to someone who doesn't yet know Christ? Tami

Our Shield

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 7:1-17

David is brokenhearted over the unjust attack on his character by his enemies. In this state, he cries out to God, humbly reminding Him of his right heart and living, asking Him to give him justice and then declaring how through it all God will be his refuge and shelter.

When someone wrongs us--treats us unfairly, speaks untruthfully about us, physically harms us--we want justice. When our hurts feel fresh, our human nature rises up and prompts us to strike back in some manner. But God tells us that He is judge and will make all things right in His timing. Thus David's confident and hope-filled words in verse 10:

"My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart."

When you experience unjust treatment, do you turn to God as your shield (shelter, refuge, protection)? Why is this so important? How would describe having an "upright heart"? Tami

Stand Firm

Today's reading: 1 Peter 5:12-14

As Peter closes out his letter, he one more time encourages and challenges us to stay the course with God and stand firmly in our faith--in all situations.

What's one way you will continue to "stand firm" in your current situation, whatever that may be? What verse, passage or message helped you the most from 1 Peter, and why? Tami

Hungry Lion

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 5:8-11

Satan is real! 1 Peter 5:8 contains one of the most specific and clear warnings about Satan and spiritual warfare that we find in the Bible:

"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."

When we choose to turn our lives over to Christ and live for Him, Satan becomes our enemy. He is a powerful adversary who is actively seeking to inflict harm on us as one of God's children. Thus Peter's warning to us about being alert, on our guard and prepared for spiritual attacks that will come. Immediately following this caution, Peter lets us know that when we draw on God's power, we can stand firm against Satan. He tells us that we will be strengthened and established through the process.

How often do you think about Satan and spiritual warfare? Why is it important for us to be aware of the fact that Satan is actively our adversary? What encouragement and comfort do you draw from verses 9-11? Tami

Properly Clothed

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 5:1-5

In 1 Peter 5, Peter provides instruction on relationships and interacting and functioning within the body of Christ--first for leaders, then to those being led and lastly to the entire group.

For those in a leadership role, Peter highlights the importance of having a willing and caring attitude and a serving heart. The charge for those not in leadership is to submit or be subject to the spiritual leaders who are over them. But Peter then concludes with the all-inclusive charge for every Christ follower to clothe themselves with humility toward one another (vs. 5). Good and wise instruction for a healthy and properly functioning body of believers.

How would you describe being "clothed in humility" and why it's important to someone? Does a particular person come to mind when you think of this phrase, and why? Do you think this phrase describes you? Tami

Today's reading: Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:14-19; Luke 24:36-49

After Jesus's resurrection, he appears to the disciples and reveals to them their mission going forward. The Gospels of Matthew and Mark contain what we refer to as the "Great Commission."

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)

"And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'" (Mark 16:15)

Luke tells us that Jesus opened the disciples' minds so that they could understand the scriptures. He then told them that "repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations" (Luke 24:47).

As 21st-century Christ followers, the Great Commission--the directive to proclaim Jesus to all people--absolutely applies to us. That means we are to be about the business of telling people about God's love for them by making Jesus Christ known to everyone around us.

Is it your practice to tell people (those you know and those you encounter) about Jesus? Who do you know that needs to hear about Jesus? Will you talk with them and invite them to church? Choosing to follow Jesus's directive could change their life forever! Tami

Today's reading: Luke 24:13-35

I love the example Jesus provides for us as He comes alongside Cleopas and his companion on the road to Emmaus. Jesus's followers don't understand what took place with Jesus just a few days earlier. They're confused, sad and disheartened (just like we are many times when things don't happen as we planned, when or unexpected hardship or tragedy occurs).

So what does Jesus do? He starts by engaging the two men in conversation, asking them questions and listening to their concerns. And as He interacts with them, Jesus is kind and compassionate. Jesus took extra care with these men, explaining and talking through many things. He gave of His time, even continuing the conversation into dinner to ensure that Cleopas and his friend truly understood the things that had happened to Him and what they had just experienced.

Do you look for opportunities to encourage and help others gain an understanding of God's love and Jesus's sacrifice for them? Do you look for opportunities to come alongside people to encourage, support and help them better understand and apply God's Word? How willing are you to give of your time to help someone meet, and then grow closer to Christ? Tami

Our Sacrifice

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Matthew 27:24-44; Mark 15:16-40; Luke 23:26-49; John 19:1-30

I struggle with anything to do with physical abuse, cruel treatment and torture. It's hard for me to read or hear details of these sorts of actions, and I don't watch programs or movies that contain extreme brutality or violence. As such, I have to prepare myself for what I'm about to take in, the images that will come into my mind and the emotions I'm going to feel when I read the account of Jesus's crucifixion.

Jesus endured merciless beating and excruciating physical, emotional and mental torture so that we (you and I) could spend eternity with Him. He willingly took on the punishment for ALL of our sins--every single one of them! He was a perfect, sinless sacrifice for us. Thank You, Jesus, for Your great love and Your sacrifice for me!

Read through at least one of the accounts of Jesus's crucifixion, doing your best to imagine what this event was like for all involved, but especially for Jesus. How does knowing that Jesus willingly took on the punishment that each of us deserve make you feel? What does Jesus's death, burial and resurrection mean for you personally? Tami

Today's reading: Luke 23:26-43

Two thieves were crucified alongside Jesus. One thief defiantly taunts Jesus about being "the Christ," but the other has a different heart. He reprimands the first thief for his self-centered, worldly thinking saying,

"Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." (Luke 23:40-41)

I was struck by this man's understanding of the situation. His words were a powerful reminder of God's grace and the fact that Jesus paid the penalty for all of my sin (my "due reward") as he hung and died on the cross.

Take some time today to think about Jesus's sacrifice on the cross. How has knowing Jesus (having a personal relationship with Him) changed your life? Would you thank Him for His sacrifice and then tell someone else about Jesus and His love for them this weekend? And while you're at it, invite them to church! Tami

No Immunity

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 22:1-6; Matthew 26:1-5

No one is immune from the powerful pull of sin, and when sin gets its grip on us, we are capable of doing some pretty horrific things.

The chief priests, elders and scribes--the highest ranking religious officials, the very men who were supposed to be upholding God's perfect law--were actively plotting, planning and seeking to MURDER Jesus!

"[They] plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him." (Matthew 26:4)

"And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to put him to death." (Luke 22:2)

And then there's Judas, one of Jesus's twelve disciples. A man who had benefitted from the love, kindness and teaching of Jesus. Yet, he was willing to throw Jesus to the wolves for financial gain. He was willing to bargain away an innocent man's life for thirty pieces of silver.

In what areas are you most likely to give in to sin? Why is it important to be aware of our areas of weakness? What did you notice or learn about sin from the examples in these passages? Tami

Today's reading: Luke 22:39-46

With his arrest and crucifixion just hours away, Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray in order to prepare himself for what He knew was going to happen. The words "as was his custom" in verse 39 spoke volumes, because they impressed on me not only the importance of prayer but also the importance of the practice of regularly talking with God, at a regular time and in a regular place.

Do you have an established time and place when you talk with God? Why is this important? What impact does regularly talking with God have on your mindset and attitude as you go about your day? Tami

The Final Account

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Matthew 26-28; Mark 14-16; Luke 22-24; John 18-21

Easter weekend is just a few days away, which means it's the perfect time to read through one or more of the accounts of Jesus's final days on earth. Each of these accounts record details of this important time, but because the story is being told through four different sets of eyes, the Gospels don't always focus on the same aspects of what's taking place. That's of great benefit to us, because by reading these unique accounts, we can get the most complete picture of the final hours of Jesus's life and the time He spent on earth after His resurrection.

I invite you to join me in reading one or more of the Gospel accounts of Jesus's final days this weekend. Before you start reading, ask God to reveal something to you that you've not noticed or understood before. Ask Him to impress on your heart how you can use these scripture passages to talk to others about Jesus and salvation. Tami

Cast Away!

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 5:7 (ESV and NLT)

As Peter concludes his letter, he gives instruction on leading paired with warnings of spiritual warfare and encouragement to stand firm in our faith. I was particularly drawn to verse 7, because lately it seems like many people I know are struggling with anxiety, fear and worry, and because of my own history with anxiety (there was a season in my life where anxiety consumed and crippled me, and I can still turn there if I'm not careful). So the message of verse 7 moved me strongly today. I looked it up in several versions and have included two of them here.

"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." (NLT)

". . .casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you." (ESV)

Whatever you're going through today--GOD CARES FOR YOU! We can lose sight of this beautiful truth when we're battling with worry, fear and anxiety. So let's take a deep breath and together give over to God whatever is troubling us. God wants us to give Him ALL of our burdens, and He wants us to have an ongoing candid discussion with Him. That means giving over to God every single situation that causes us to worry, every feeling of fear that grips our heart, every anxious thought that enters, occupies and then tries to control our mind.

What is it that you need to "cast away" and give over to God today? What encouragement did you draw from 1 Peter 5:7? Tami

Good for God

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 4:12-19

I feel blessed to be a citizen of the United States because of our country's stance on freedom of religion. That being said, the social climate in our country is not overly friendly to those who have chosen to place their faith in Christ. Openly proclaiming that you are a "Christ follower" won't win you any popularity contests, and it often brings ridicule, insults, mocking and even discrimination.

Peter tells us that trials and opposition are a given once we place our faith in Christ and dedicate our lives to doing good for God. He then reminds us that our trials parallel, to a lesser degree, what Jesus experienced and endured while here on earth. So when we suffer for the sake of being a Christian, we can remain steadfast and joyful, and when we do, it will highlight and bring glory to God.

"Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good." (vs. 19)

How are you doing at living out 1 Peter 4:19 and "doing good" for God--even through difficult circumstances? When you feel like you're under fire because of your faith, what helps you remain steadfast and joyful? Tami

Expectant Lament

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 6:1-10

David is in a difficult place physically and emotionally. He's tired and weary, and in this downtrodden state he humbly asks God for relief. Yet even though his circumstances seem dire, David doesn't lose heart in God. Instead, he is expectant for God to move on his behalf and confidently closes his prayer by proclaiming that the Lord has heard and accepted his prayer and that He would take action.

How does praying candidly to God influence your thinking, attitude and actions? Do you pray expectant prayers? In other words, do you believe that God hears your prayers and pray with the expectation that He will answer them? Why is this important? Tami

Lead Me

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 5:1-12

David is truly a prayer warrior. His example of constantly engaging with God through prayer is needed and one we can definitely learn from. David's request in verse 8 in particular drew my attention. It's a wise petition that repeatedly appears in David's conversations with God.

"Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me." (vs. 8)

Is asking God to lead you in doing right a regular part of your prayers? Why is this important? Tami

Living Out Good

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 4:1-11 (NLT)

Life as we've known it changes once we make the decision to receive Christ as our Savior. We no longer strive to satisfy our human wants and desires; instead, we focus on doing the will of God and being a living example of doing good.

"You won't spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God." (1 Peter 4:2, NLT)

Peter provides us with some instruction on this good and godly living in verses 7-11, where he instructs us to be earnest and diligent about praying, love each other greatly, extend hospitality and serve one another with the spiritual gifts God has given us.

Would you describe yourself as being "anxious to do the will of God"? How you have lived out and demonstrated Peter's instructions on godly living in verses 7-11 in the past two weeks--praying earnestly, loving others, extending hospitality, or using one or more of your spiritually gifts? Be specific. Tami

Zealous for Good

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 3:13-22

My sister has a phrase she says often: "If you do what you know is right, God will bless." That's immediately what came to my mind as I read today, because Peter is essentially conveying that same message in verses 13-17. I particularly liked the reinforcing call for us to be zealous (passionate, fervent, eager) for what is good--regardless of the fact that our choosing to do what is right and good may result in some form of persecution, harassment or discrimination. Verse 17 sums up Peter's instruction well:

"For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil."

What does being "zealous for what is good" mean for you personally? Verse 15 tells us to be ready to tell others about the reason for our hope. Are you talking with others about your relationship with Christ and your love of what is good? How might you explain this? Tami

Pay Back

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 3:8-12

The thought of getting even with someone or paying someone back for wronging us is certainly appealing, but it's not the way God would have us respond. And when we do choose to respond in kind to someone who has hurt us, it doesn't fix the situation. While it may provide a short-lived feeling of satisfaction, our hurt and wounds remain, and we're still carrying around anger, bitterness and resentment.

As he did in chapter 2, Peter once again challenges us as Christ followers to live differently than the world around us by resisting the urge to retaliate against those who have harmed or treated us in badly. Peter issues this clear instruction in verse 9:

"Don't repay evil for evil. Don't retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing." (NLT)

Do you find it difficult to "turn the other cheek" when someone mistreats you? What role does having a tender and humble heart play in being able to "pay them back with a blessing"? Who do you need to pay back with a blessing today? And what might that look like--praying for them, refusing to engage in a fight, offering assistance, offering them a compliment? Tami

Loud Example

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 3:1-7

"Actions speak louder than words" is a well-known saying, and based on what I've experienced, it certainly hits the mark. Our conduct truly does broadcast the condition of our heart.

Peter delivers a similar message in 1 Peter 3:1-7, where he writes about how our actions, attitudes and words serve as powerful, spiritual examples to those in our household--and specifically our spouses. I've experienced this from both sides, being an example to my husband and, in turn, receiving an example from him. I'm thankful for Peter's reminder that when our hearts are right with God, our actions will highlight Christ and draw people closer to Him and us.

How often do you think about your actions, attitudes and words being a spiritual example to those around you (and if you're married, specifically to your spouse)? How can you be more intentional when it comes to being a spiritual example at home? What about at work, school or in your neighborhood? Identify one or two actions you can take. Be specific. Tami

Today's reading: 1 Peter 2:13-17 (MSG)

While I typically use the ESV for my daily time in God's Word, I will often turn to other translations or versions of the Bible to see what wording they use and get a broader perspective on a passage. I did that today and was drawn to how The Message conveyed 1 Peter 2:13-17. I encourage you to take a look at this passage in more than one version today, but especially the ESV and The Message.

Respectfully submitting to those who are in authority over us can be challenging at times. Yet, it's exactly what God wants and expects us to do. 1 Peter 2:13-17 clearly puts before us the call to submit to those who have authority over us, pairing this with the call to do good because we are living servants of God. Peter concludes this segment with the command to:

"Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government." (vs. 17, MSG)

Would you say you are living out the charge Peter gives us in 1 Peter 2:17? What's an example of you treating those you've encountered "with dignity" in the past week? How have you revered God and shown love to your spiritual family? Is it your practice to pray for your government officials? Tami

Regular Routine

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Psalm 5:1-3

The fact that David had a regular routine with God comes across clearly in the beginning verses of Psalm 5.

"O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch." (vs. 3)

Is it your practice to start your day by talking with God? How does starting your morning with God impact the rest of your day? What are some of the benefits you've experienced from having a consistent and regular routine with God? Tami

Joy and Peace

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 4:1-8

Psalm 4 conveys a similar message to that of Psalm 3--that when we trust in and rely on God, we can have joy and peace no matter our circumstances. I was particularly drawn to the final verse of this chapter because I have experienced this time and time again. Thank you, Lord!

"In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety." (vs. 8)

Are you fully trusting God with everything going on in your life? Is it your practice to ask Him to give you joy and peace as you live for Him? Tami

Today's reading: 1 Peter 2:4-12

Peter's encouragement in 1 Peter 2 continues with him reminding us of God's great love for us demonstrated through His plan of salvation--Jesus, a "living stone" and the cornerstone (foundation) of our faith. Peter then takes his encouragement to another level by drawing from Old Testament language to show these new believers in Christ (the New Testament church as well as the church today) that they are "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession" (vs. 9).

As I sat back and considered the words of 1 Peter 2:4-12, I was struck by the greatness of God and His supreme plan for mankind. Peter's words turned my attention back to 1 Peter 1 and the message of being "born again to a living hope" (vs. 3).

What did you learn or notice about the greatness and magnificence of God from this passage? What did these verses reveal about our human thinking and limited understanding of His ways? What verse, phrase, image or concept encouraged you the most from 1 Peter 2:4-12, and why? Tami

Today's reading: 1 Peter 2:1-3

Once we receive Christ as our Savior, it's God's desire that we grow spiritually and become more and more like Christ, deepening our relationship with Him in doing so. But unlike physical growth, which happens naturally, spiritual growth requires effort and intentionality. Thus Peter's instruction in 1 Peter 2:1-3 to rid ourselves of sinful and harmful behaviors--like malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander--and instead seek after the right and wholesome truth (spiritual nourishment) we can only receive through God's Word.

How often do you think about your spiritual growth? What you need to do to continue moving forward? On a scale of 1 to 10, how intentional are you about daily spending time in God's Word? What's an example of how you have "tasted that the Lord is good"? Tami

Living Holy

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 1:13-25

Peter issues the challenge to conduct ourselves rightly--to "be holy in all your conduct" (vs. 15). But rather than simply stating this charge and moving on, he fleshes it out a bit, providing a number of ways we should be conducting ourselves in order to live out a holy lifestyle.

  • Our minds should be engaged for God and prepared for action. We should be sober-minded. (vs. 13)
  • We should behave differently and not conform to our former ways. (vs. 14)
  • We must have reverence for God. (vs. 17)
  • We remember the price that Jesus paid on the cross, dying for our sins. (vs. 18-19)
  • We live having faith in and hoping for Christ's return. (vs. 21)
  • We genuinely and sincerely extend love to others. (vs. 22)

What does the charge to "be holy in all your conduct" mean for you personally? Describe what living out this command looks like in your day-to-day life. Tami

Today's reading: 1 Peter 1:13

One verse and its instruction jumped off the page at me this morning--1 Peter 1:13:

"Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."

What an important reminder of how preparing our minds is a necessary component of living rightly for God. Preparing our minds for action is similar to us preparing our physical body for a race or activity. We wouldn't sign up for a marathon and expect to be able to simply show up and run 26.2 miles well, or even in its entirely. The same is true for our minds when it comes to our spiritual journey and living fully for Christ. Our minds our powerful, and I've learned from experience that the thoughts I put in my mind will influence and direct my actions.

That being the case, being proactive about preparing for serving God is a must. That preparing starts with filling our minds with God's Word. The next steps are considering, anticipating, visualizing the experience, and thinking about the outcome and benefits to others and ourselves. And the more we think through taking whatever the specific action God is placing on our heart to do, the more excited, motivated and prepared we become to take that action.

Would you say that you are in the habit of "preparing your mind for action" as a Christ follower? What does your "preparing" routine look like? Why is taking in and considering God's Word such a key component to our taking right action? Tami

Tests

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 1:3-12

On pretty much any given week, most of us encounter difficulty in some area of our life--from something minor and isolated to something that's a major, all-consuming circumstance. Given that difficulties are going to come, we need to be prepared so we can react and ultimately respond to the trials we encounter in a manner that is pleasing to God and helps us be a positive witness to those around us.

But responding at our best to difficulties can be challenging. Even after years of being a Christ follower, I have to fight against letting my gut--my human reactions--take over when a trial enters my life. So Peter pointing out how trials "test the genuineness" of our faith was a helpful reminder today to be prepared and look at these testing circumstances as an opportunity to grow spiritually. That way, when the test arrives (and it will), my first reaction will be to take it to God and ask Him to walk with and guide me through whatever the situation.

When you encounter difficulty and trials, are you quick to seek God through prayer? Do you ask God to help you trust Him and view the trials as a growing and/or learning opportunity? How does thinking about trials as being "a testing of the genuineness of your faith" help you stand strong and stay the course with God? Tami
