Today's Devotion

Daily Devotional | From and For

  • April 1, 2023 | 1 Corinthians 1:9

In church, we like to talk about what we were saved from. We were saved from sin and God’s judgment. But we don’t often stop to ask, “What were we saved for?” What has God called us to? The Bible from beginning to end describes how we were created to be in relationship with God and dwell in His presence.

A Conversation with April's Devotional Author

From the Editor

Hello friends,

Have you ever tried to read through the Bible in a year? If you’re like me, you might have slowed down when you encountered the Old Testament book of Leviticus. What do these chapters filled with details of sacrifices have to do with us today?

Take courage! Dr. Ryan Cook is our helpful guide for The Heart of Worship: A Study of Leviticus. Why did we choose this title? Because when we gain a better understanding of God’s holiness and our own sinfulness, we can’t help but fall to our knees in worship. And, this month of Easter is the perfect time to deepen our understanding of Jesus Christ as the perfect sacrifice.

 Did you know we’re on YouTube? Each month, I enjoy sitting down for a conversation with our devotional authors. Take a moment to hear from Dr. Ryan Cook as he explains what you can expect to take away from this study. It’s ready to view on our YouTube channel. (And, new for April, we’ll have two videos for you! A second video with a deeper dive will post mid-month.)

 Finally, all of us at Today in the Word join you in celebrating Resurrection Day! The Lord is risen indeed! Let’s open God’s Word together.
