Daily devotions are meant to be a source of encouragement and joy, not a duty or a burden! Devotions are just one way we surrender ourselves to God and show our need for him every day.
This month, our Today readings focus on the New Testament book of Philippians. The apostle Paul, from his prison cell in Rome, writes a heartwarming and encouraging letter to the church in the city of Philippi. Not only did he encourage the Christians there, but this letter has continued to encourage and warm the hearts of Christians throughout the centuries. Our theme this month is “Philippians: The Mind of Christ.”
This month our Today readings focus on the growing early church, after Christ’s resurrection and ascension into heaven. We’ll see how the fledgling community developed in Jerusalem, especially how it began to grow after the Holy Spirit came on Pentecost. And we’ll see how God continues to be at work in the world to build his kingdom. Our theme this month is “What is the Church?”
