From James 1:23, this is a few minutes, looking at God’s word like a mirror, seeing something obvious and making a change.


Stay Thirsty My Friends (3.50 Friday)
2020 May 294m 27s
Psalm 42. As we conclude season 3 of Word in Motion, I think Paul would “yes and amen” this sentiment from the Psalmist, my soul thirsts for God. Why are you cast down, verse 5, hope in God. Why are you cast down, verse 11, hope in God.
Alls Well (3.49 Thursday)
2020 May 286m 38s
Season Wrap-up. Paul, I count EVERYTHING as loss for the sake of knowing Christ. Also Paul, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Also Paul, it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me.
Common Party (3.48 Wednesday)
2020 May 275m 28s
Philippians 4:21-23. Who are you celebrating with? When was the last time you greeted a brother or sister IN CHRIST? When was the last time a conversation with another Christian was just ABOUT Christ? What would that look like?
Whatever I Want (3.47 Tuesday)
2020 May 266m 45s
Phil. 4:10-20. I can do all things in Christ. It doesn't mean I can do all things I WANT to do… doesn't mean I can suddenly pass a test I didn't study for, or win a game I didn't practice for… But I can be content, I can even rejoice in my place, “He is the secret.”
Within Reach (3.46 Monday)
2020 May 256m 57s
Philippians 4:1-9. Remember how the book started, Paul is certain that he who began this work… NOT that the disciples will eventually achieve perfection, not that they will arrive with enough practice… but that he who began the work will complete it.
What is Worship (3.45 Friday)
2020 May 225m 50s
Psalm 41. Ever read Psalms as a running part of your devotion time? As the weeks without singing together went on, I realized that by reading and really engaging with the Psalms, I was worshiping right along with the Psalmist.
But I Press On (3.44 Thursday)
2020 May 216m 48s
Philippians 3:12-21. Future tense. but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own… past tense. He has done his job. I’m already his own. I dont press on to earn being his, but I am his, so I press on to own that… to live like what I am.
Count As Loss (3.43 Wednesday)
2020 May 206m 47s
Philippians 3:1-11. But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ… and specifically the surpassing worth of knowing Christ… For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish… to what point and purpose?
Watering Pots (3.42 Tuesday)
2020 May 196m 57s
Philippians 2:19-30. Today’s passage seems a little out of the way, but I wanted to point something out that we have been talking about with students a lot lately… that Christians were designed to thrive in groups.
Whistle While You Work (3.41 Monday)
2020 May 186m 53s
Philippians 2:12-18. Work out… for it is God who works… like dad telling his kid to pedal the bike, even while he holds the seat for balance and pushes it forward. The kid may just sit there, frozen and move forward, but to truly grow, and thrive, the child must still work.
