The Corinthians had received gifts from God, but they needed significant correction in their use of those gifts. Paul’s correction in chapters 12, 13, and 14 of 1 Corinthians provides immensely valuable teaching on the purpose of spiritual gifts, the oneness of Christ’s body, and our call to demonstrate love by seeking the welfare of others over our own interests. Paul’s instruction to the Corinthians can help us avoid divisions over the use of spiritual gifts today.


Experiencing renewal: devotions for a closer walk with god

Christians should experience ongoing spiritual renewal. The renewing work of the Holy Spirit keeps us from complacency in our progress toward spiritual maturity. The devotional exercises in this booklet are intended to help us seek and submit to the Spirit's transforming and renewing work.


Why We Need the Old Testament

Given the trouble that many have had reconciling the Old and New Testaments, should we consider the Old Testament as no longer worth our study? Should we "unhitch" from it and just focus on the New Testament? No. We don't need to unhitch from Old Testament—we need to understand it.




The message of Jesus’ provision for our salvation is often called the “gospel”—a word that means “good news” or “good message.” The responsibility and privilege of sharing the gospel is given to every single follower of Jesus Christ in every generation.



Biblical Meditation

Biblical meditation is one of the most valuable practices God has given us to enrich our fellowship with Him. This neglected discipline can renew our love for Scripture, empower our prayers, and bring new joy to our communion with the Lord.




Marriage is not seen by many in the U.S. to be the exclusive domain for sex and living together. To maintain that it is may seem unreasonable, unwise, and even legalistic to many people. The culture has changed. So why not accept the new reality as acceptable for Christians? Because God has a better way for his people.



Biblical fasting can help free us from things that have an inordinate and inappropriate hold upon our lives so that we can live more fully for the glory of God.



Understanding the Trinity

A good understanding of the biblical teaching about the Trinity is essential for a growing relationship with God. Grasping what Scripture teaches about our triune God can lead us to greater gratitude for our salvation and deeper joy in our spiritual growth.
