Acts 7-8

Daily Reading Acts 7-8 Daily Thought Stephen was dragged into the council room, placed before the court, and asked questions about Jesus. He answered by opening the Scriptures and giving the chief priest and elders a lesson from their own history, from Abraham to Joseph to Moses to David.

Acts 4-6

Daily Reading Acts 4-6 Daily Thought For those who question whether Jesus is the only way to salvation, Jesus sought another way, as well, praying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me” (Luke 22:42).

Acts 1-3

Daily Reading Acts 1-3 Daily Thought You would think seeing Jesus alive would fire up the disciples, empower them to take the good news of Jesus to the world. It simply didn’t happen that way.

John 11-12

Daily Reading John 11-12 Daily Thought Home was heaven, but Jesus let go and came to a world of sin and hurt, suffering and injustice, and most of all, death. His friend Lazarus lay dead and the sisters suffered and the crowds cried. “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?” wailed […]


John 9-10

Daily Reading John 9-10 Daily Thought Jesus was accused of blaspheme because he claimed to be the Son of God. His response: just watch me and see if I don’t look like my Father; “If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even […]


John 7-8

Daily Reading John 7-8 Daily Thought In describing Jesus, the writer of Hebrews observed, “We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). The scribes and the Pharisees had caught the woman […]


John 5-6

Daily Reading John 5-6 Daily Thought Rumor of Jesus coming to town brought people out of their homes “and a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing on the sick” (John 6:2).
