Tuesday Truth - Bind the Word of God

Some Orthodox Jews would wear a black leather box, called a tefillin, just above their forehead fastened to their head with a leather band. Inside the box they would put the scrolls of the Word of God. It was their way applying a command form the Law, Deuteronomy 11:18, “You shall bind them…as a sign upon your forehead.” This is done as an outward observance, but in looking deeper this can change your life and mind.

Friday Devotional – God Speaks

Being the father of the bride, I gained a different perspective of all that goes into this special day. We didn’t just wake up one morning and go get married. Everything has been planned out for months in advance. With all this preparation for a wedding, it got me thinking about us as Christians, the Church, as the bride of Christ.

Thursday Thought-Listening as Spiritual Hospitality
